The Lyrics

What the hell do you want? I, a person about to-- *sobs* --die, salute you!
Hard town
Potter in the City
Cock of the walk gets dirty and gritty
Get down-- and it is a pity
We don't even see a Muggle in the city

All around, everyone's halfdead
Walkin' on the sidewalk; messin' with a hothead

But at night it's a different world
go out with a different girl
C'mon C'mon it'll be all right
Ignore the heat and dance all night
And babe, the day is not supposed
To be-- to be the night
With the Potter in the city
With the Potter in the city

Good town even in the city
They all look fine and they look so pretty
No time for Nitty or Gritty
We're not allowed to visit Mississippi

Cuz we're wheezin' at the bus stop
Do not make Minister of Magic blow his top

Cuz at night it's a different world
Go out with a different
C'mon C'mon it'll be all right
Don't mind the heat it'll be all right
And babe, don't you it's a pity
The day is not like the night
With the Potter in the city
With the Potter in the city

*instrumental intermission*

Hard town
Potter in the city
They look so fine and they look so pretty
Good town, but isn't it a pity
That we always see a Muggle in the city

All around, people look halfdead
Walkin' on the sidewalk, messin' with a scarhead

Cuz at night it's a different world
Go out with a different girl
C'mon c'mon it'll be all right
Don't mind the heat and dance all night
And babe-- don't you it's a pity
The days are not like the nights
With the Potter in the city
With the Potter in the city

Radar! Did you send this horsehockey to I-Corps? Well, send a new one! And tell Pierce and Hunnicutt to get in here... Wait, not that Potter? Oh... In that case, "Ratii fivus."
