Well, there's a place where we all come from
The site is pretty and brotherly love
Every town has a spot
Dance girl swingin' and shakin' what she got, now
"Ma Brown's" hangin downtown
Rollin' through the city to the boogie box sound
My feet gonna slip into
Bad shoes truckin' on a street that's cool

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Come on down to the city, yeah
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
There's a place in the city, yeah

Here I am, in the heart of the city
Darlin', yeah
Here I am, in the heart of the city
Mmm, yeah

Yeah, there's a place where I wanna be
South street shuffle gonna do it to me
Have a taste for this place
L.O.V.E.'s on the make, I said
Party up, burnin' bright
Never gonna leave, city feels me right
My home's up in the sky
Me and the city are side by side

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Come on down to the city, yeah
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
There's a place in the sunshine, yeah

Well, here I am, in the heart of the city
My, my, my, my, my, my
Here I am, in the heart of the city
Darlin', yeah
Here I am, in the heart of the city
Well, here I am, in the heart of the city
Ah, check it out!

In the heart of the city

Heart all night long
In the heart of the city

Heart of the city

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Come on down to the city, whoo!

There's a place in the city, yeah

Here I am, in the heart of the city
My, my, my, my, my, my
Here I am, in the heart of the city
