The Lyrics

Bummer In The City

Big frown! Bummer in the city
All of my hair gettin' slick and nitty
Been 'round, in this dirty city
Doesn't seem to be no mercy or no pity
All around - gangs'r shootin' war heads
Drivin' by the crackhouse - gotta get some stuff, yeah!

(chorus)
But At NIGHT it's a different world
Go get a go-go girl
C'mon c'mon we'll dance all night
Then scrawl graffiti outta sight
And babe, don't ya know it's so shitty the days-
are just like the nights!
What a bummer! In the city
What a bummer! In the city

Cruel town! Bitchin' from the trenches!
Bums and winos - layin' on benches
Dum dog gonna dump a dooty
See it there on every corner in the city!
'Till it's smellin' like a big flop
Runnin' up the stairs - gonna mug me on the roof top!


(chorus)
But At NIGHT it's a different world
Go get a go-go girlThe days
C'mon c'mon we'll dance all night
Then scrawl graffiti outta sight
And babe, don't ya know it's so shitty the days-
Are just like the nights!
What a bummer! In the city
What a bummer! In the city

(chorus)
But At NIGHT it's a different world
Go get a go-go girl
C'mon c'mon we'll dance all night
Then scrawl graffiti outta sight
And babe, don't ya know it's so shitty the days-
Are just like the nights!
What a bummer! In the city
What a bummer! In the city

Big frown! Bummer in the city!

I like the 1st verse especially!

I didn't like the first verse, but, as that notorious city-dweller Ralph Kramden would say, the second verse was a regular riot!
