The summer is hot, the nights are still cold
Here in Philadelphia, in the city of soul
And we can let our hair down when it gets hot above
'Cause nothin' ever happens in the city of love

Some love it, most don't give a da-amn
But I've got the fire in my heart, sweatin' it out

You can't understand
This is still nineteen eighty-five, (nineteen eighty-fi-ive)

Sometimes you can't ignore
Sometimes you just can't make a mo-ove
The city is black but the fire is re-ed
I've sti-ill got the sound of marching feet in my head
But some love it, most don't give a da-amn
I've got the fire in my heart, swe
