you don't like doing
what you're told,
you don't take shit
from anybody, no.
You and me babe,
we're just a stone's throw

from the city.
From a city.
Any city.

I need you little one
by my side,
take you little one
for a ride,
you and me babe
we'll make it right on time

to the city.
To a city.
Any city.

Get a little tired lately
of my cage,
got to make it out
before it gets
too late,
I'm led to believe
in fairy tales

in the city.
About a city.
Any city.

Got a nasty habit
of breaking the bank.
Makes me uneasy-
lay flat on my back,
it's said I believe
to be a naturopathic remedy,
for living in the city.

For now I like to live
in the city,
it's got everything I need.
Everybody keeps telling me
that I'm blind.
I keep saying the same
in kind.
