summer in the city means cleavage cleavage cleavage
and I start to miss you, baby, sometimes
Iíve been staying up and drinking in a late night establishment
telling strangers personal things

summer in the city, Iím lonely lonely lonely
I went to a protest just to rub up against strangers
and I did feel like coming but I also felt like crying and it
doesnít seem so worth it right now

and the castrated ones stand in the corner smoking
they want to feel the bulges in their pants start to rise
at the site of a beautiful woman they feel nothing but
anger, her skin makes them sick in the nightÖnauseaousÖ

summer in the city, Iím so lonely lonely lonely
Iíve been hallucinating you, babe, at the backs of other women
and I tap them on the shoulder and they turn around smiling
but thereís no recognition in their eyes

summer in the city means cleavage cleavage cleavage
and donít get me wrong, dear, in general Iím doing quite fine
itís just when itís summer in the city, and youíre so long gone from the city
I start to miss you, baby, sometimes

when itís summer in the city, and youíre so long gone from the city
I start to miss you, baby, sometimesÖ
