Am            Am/G               D9/F#                Fmaj7       E
    Hot town summer in the city, back of neck getting dirty and gritty,
Am             Am/G              D9/F#                Fmaj7         E
    Been down, isn't it a pity? Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city,
E                E7/G#
    All around, people looking half dead,
  Am                        A
Walking on the side walk, hotter than a matchhead!      


D                          G             D              G
   But at night it's a different world,     go out and find a girl,
  D                     G                  D                   G
Come on, come on, and dance all night,  despite the heat it'll be alright,
      Bm               E                    Bm        E
And, babe, don't you know, it's a pity the days can't be like the nights,
         Bm             E             Bm              E
In the summer...in the city, in the summer... in the city!


Am               Am/G                 D9/F#                Fmaj7       E
    Cool town, evening in the city, dressing so fine, and looking so pretty,
Am               Am/G                 D9/F#                Fmaj7         E
    Cool cat,  looking for a kitty,   gonna look in every corner of the city,
E              E7/G#
    Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop,
  Am                               A
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop!      


D                          G             D              G
   But at night it's a different world,     go out and find a girl,
  D                     G                  D                   G
Come on, come on, and dance all night,  despite the heat it'll be alright,
      Bm               E                    Bm        E
And, babe, don't you know, it's a pity the days can't be like the nights,
         Bm             E             Bm              E
In the summer...in the city, in the summer... in the city!
