(Spoken Word)

Ah! The sounds of the city, its weird man, if you’ve never seen it before

You know what I’m talking about, Going there for the first

Run around and see all these people walking around at strange hours of the night

Where they been, who knows where they’re going, I don’t know

It’s just another night in the big city

That’s right, it’s weird

Another night in the city, yeah! Just another night in the city

Just another walk, another walk downtown. Ah! Just another walk around

And you’re wonderin’ now, you’re wonderin’ now, who your friends are in the city

And you’re wonderin’ now, wonderin’ now, who you’re friends are in the big city

See the cars and the buses runnin’ down the line

Hear the sound and the noises ringing in your brain

See the lights, flying high overhead babe

Just another night, enough to make your head spinnin’ ‘round

And you’re wonderin’ now, you’re wonderin’ now, about all those flying lights in the city

And don’t think too much about it babe, it’s just another strange night in the big city now

You got to school yourself, and let your hair down now.

No one knows it’s you, oh! Let your hair down

School yourself, and let your dreams come out loud.

Ah! Make sure your still around man every time it does

In the big city now, little momma

Little momma, little momma, little momma, little momma

And you’re wonderin’ now, what’s out there

As you run around, as you run around everywhere

You get in your car, but you’re going nowhere

As you hit every light and every stop, but you’re going nowhere

And you’re wonderin’ now, you’re wonderin’ now

And you’re wonderin’ now, you’re wonderin’ now

About all those strange things in the city

But don’t think too much now, about the big city and its cold rough way of life

Rough way of life, rough way of life, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Let your hair down now, and get out and play

Let your hair down now, now you got to do it ‘bout every day

Let your hair down ah, ah! Let your dreams come out loud. Ah, man!

You got to have fun out there baby, and take advantage of it all

In the big city now little momma

Little momma, little momma, little momma, little momma, in the big city

Get in your car baby, you ain’t goin’ nowhere, you’re going nowhere

And you’re wonderin’ now, about all those funny things in the big city babe

And you’re wonderin’ now, about all those crazy worlds and ways in the city

See the cars now and the buses runnin’ down the lines.

You hear every noise, you hear every sound, makin’ it rhyme

You’re lookin’ up way ahead now, and see the world passin’ by.

Ah! Just another crazy night, enough to make your head spinnin’ ‘round

That’s all right now, the city is another world in your nighttime

You can twirl and dance babe, twirl and dance around every night

Let your hair down now, in the big city babe

Just get around now, get around now, as you would in the big city
