Verse 1:
Cm          Cm                   F                      G#         G
  Hot town, summer in the city; back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Cm           Cm                F                   G#             G
  Been down, isn't it a pity; doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
G              G7
  All around, people looking half dead
Cm                       C
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

Chorus:
F                     A#
  But at night it's a different world
F            A#
  Go out and find a girl
F                      A#
  Come-on come-on and dance all night
F                        A#
  Despite the heat it'll be alright
    Dm              G
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
         Dm         G
That the days can't be like the nights
       Dm             G
In the summer, in the city
       Dm             G
In the summer, in the city

Verse 2:
Cool town, evening in the city; Dressing so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat, looking for a kitty; Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm wheezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs, gonna meet you on the rooftop

Chorus:
F                     A#
  But at night it's a different world
F            A#
  Go out and find a girl
F                      A#
  Come-on come-on and dance all night
F                        A#
  Despite the heat it'll be alright
    Dm              G
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
         Dm         G
That the days can't be like the nights
       Dm             G
In the summer, in the city
       Dm             G
In the summer, in the city
