It's hot here at night, lonely, black and quiet On a hot summer night Don't be afraid of the world we made On a hot summer night
Cause when a long-legged lovely walks by Yeah you can see the look in her eye Then you know that it's
[Chorus] Hot in the city, hot in the city tonight, tonight Hot in the city, hot in the city tonight, tonight
For all the dreams and schemes, people are as they seem On a hot summer night Don't be no fun, don't forget you're young On a hot summer night
A sometime someone you're not Don't wait to see what you got Cause you know that you're
We'll walk until my feet drop I'm a train when I'm hateful Yeah, lay right down now And ride until your head breaks I'm a-walking till my brain pops I will move with the beat now I'm a chain 'round an A-bomb I'm a ribbon in the heat now New York!
