writer: Nils Lofgren, Lou Reed

Don't these city lights light these streets to life
All these crazy nights bring us together
Any rainy day, you can dance your blues away
Don't these city lights bring us together
Charlie Chaplin's cane, well it flicked away the rain
Things weren't quite the same, after he came here
But then when he left, upon our own request
Things weren't quite the same, after he came here
Don't these city lights bring the streets to life
All these crazy nights bring us together
Any rainy day you can dance your blues away
Don't these city lights bring us together
We're supposed to be a land of liberty
And those city lights to blaze forever
But that little tramp, ooh, on that street corner lamp
When he left us, it's humor left for ever
We're supposed to be a land of liberty
And those city lights to blaze forever
But that little tramp, leaning on that street corner lamp
When he left us, it's humor left for ever
Don't these city lights bring the streets to life
All these crazy nights bring us together
Any rainy day you can dance your blues away
Don't these city lights bring us together

Hey pretty baby
Don’t you think you might give me a chance
Get it on with me
Go downtown for some love and romance
And I know I ain’t nothing
I ain’t worth but a thin dime
But if you put your heart in my hands
I’m sure that I could change your mind

I wanna boogie with you
Yeah, I wanna boogie with you

There’s something, baby, that your parents
Both agreed
And that is that they both had it
Deep distrust for me
And your best friend frankie
Well I know your best friend frankie, he wants to see me sink
And I don’t much blame him for that
He gets so useless after so few drinks, you know, baby

I wanna boogie with you
I wanna boogie with you

Well I know your little baby sister
She thinks that I’m a flop
But I guess that you know that it’s true
I spent more time at the bottom than the top
Tell your little sister
I know she wants to give me a whirl
But I don’t have the time, baby
To wait till she’s grown up and she’s a woman, not a girl

Don’t you know I wanna boogie with you
Hey, I wanna boogie with you
I wanna boogie with you
I wanna boogie with you, yeah

Boogie with you
Down on the corner
Boogie with you, yeah
