City girl, city girl what does it take?
City girl, city girl before you break?
City girl, city girl it's you I love
City girl, city girl I'm dreaming of tonight
Tonight, tonight

She come around, I know that she will
Just a matter of time, she'll fall in love with me
She got your head-strong girls
With your life-long career
Staring you in the face
Get used to taking second place
Cause it's the only thing to do
A love is so dangerous
She'll take all your innocence
Then she'll turn you away

There's no one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
That's what they tell me

No one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
That's what they tell me...

Romance, romance
She says "where is the romance?"
It's here in my heart
It takes two for a brand new start
All those guys with their tongues hanging out
And me with my best foot forward
And me with my flat feet
And me with my flat feet
I used to be so strong
I used to be so strong
My independence is leaking down the drain
There it goes...

No one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
That's what they tell me...

No one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
That's what they tell me...

City girl, city girl what does it take?
City girl, city girl before you break?
City girl, city girl it's you I love
City girl, city girl I'm dreaming of...

No one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
No one like the one you love
