The Lyrics

You enjoy all the bright lights
You walk the alleys of night
Snorkeling through the rivers of darkness
You ain't too bright

You were born in the city
Palm trees under your feet
Playin in the spray of fire hydrants
Eatin' moldy meat

You were born

I don't care if you're Princess
I don't care if you're Grace
You were born in a city
So get outta my face

Meet little Susie Canova
She is only 16
She was born in a city
Now she ain't so sweet

Here's little Johnny Barufta
He is only 11
He was born in the city
Now he ain't goin to heaven

I hate all g-damn cities
I hate all g-damn streets
Why did we evolve past the farmhouse?
Beyond the grass & leaves

He was born in the city
She was born in the park
Who do you think's better off now?
Some wild aardvaark!

You can take all the cities
& dump them into the sea
The fish can live in the buildings
& drive in the streets

You like the sounds of construction
You like the smell of exhaust
You're just an urban obstruction
Go ride a f---ing horse.

You were born
