I was born and raised with the cross in my faceAnd a mind that was set for pityNot fully grown I was left all aloneThat's the time I set my eyes on the cityWhere no cold wind sweep and no willow's weepAnd no singing in the treetops puts a child to sleepWhere the ghosts and creepsSad-eyed roam the streetsAnd the best minds turning tricksFor that sad and angry fixBut now I'm through, I'm through, I'm throughI'm through, I'm through singing 'bout the city(Singing 'bout the city, singing 'bout the city)I was all knocked down as I came to townI was smug as a bug and prettyI was led to believe that a little less self-esteemWas required to survive in the cityIn the high-end streets where the faces meetWho are daring for a sharing on the toilet seatsBut I've had my fill of cheap boudoir thrillsHallelujah, - I am comingBring the fattened calf and singNow I'm through, I'm through, I'm throughI'm through, I'm through singing 'bout the city(Singing 'bout the city, singing 'bout the city)http://www.6lyrics.com/singing_bout_the_city-lyrics-the_ark.aspxIn the summertime in the dry hot townSun is high and ambition is lowWhen the sewers seethe there's no air to breatheAnd when no place feels like homeIn the summertime in the countrysideWhere the birches and long grass growAnd the small birds sing and the church-bell ringAnd the gentle warm winds blowI guess I really should have knownThere's only one place left to goThis time I'm really coming homeI'm gonna spread my wingsGonna leave everythingFar behind that's unsound and shittyI'm free at last, it's all in the pastFooling round like a clown in the cityWhere no pine and spruce lend a home to the mooseAnd no brown bears sleep and no rabbits snoozeIn the open wild you get warm and mildTurning playboys to the ploughboysThat they are insideWhere the green crops grow and the rivers flowWhere lakes glitter, small birds twitterOh, I sure could think of worse!It's the Springsteen curse but this time it's in reverseLife's a pity in the city Hell, what does Bruce know about spruce?Oh, I'm through, I'm through, I'm throughI'm through, I'm through, I'm through, I'm throughI'm through...Singing 'bout the city, yeaheah
