Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck gettin' dirty 'n' gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people lookin' half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on and dance all night
Despite the heat, it'll be alright

Babe, don't you know it's a pity
The days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

Cool town, evening in the city
Dressed so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Runnin' upstairs, sayin' meet you on the roof top

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on and dance all night
Despite the heat, it'll be alright

Babe, don't you know it's a pity
And the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck gettin' dirty 'n' gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
But doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people lookin' half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on and dance all night
Despite the heat, it'll be alright

Babe, don't you know it's a pity
The days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city

Hot city
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

In the city
