[verse]
E                   D     Dsus4 D
Come along into the city
                    C
Where the girls are pretty
                 B      (B/A..B/Ab..B/G.B/F#^)
And you can't go wrong 

Take your time
No need to hurry
Don't have to worry
'Cause it won't take long

              A         
Well, you can surf in the sea and
        D   
You can swim in the pools
(in the city in the city..)
   A
Do anything you wanna
              D
'Cause there ain't no rules
           A                         D
Drive your Super Stock Cobra to the long highways
            E
And you can drag

A                D
In the city everybody's right
A                             D
The kids are hip and they can dance all night
A                   D                         B
In the city all the girls are pretty and they go

[break; verse pattern]

Come along into the city
Where the girls are pretty
And you can't go wrong

Well, you can surf in the sea and
You can swim in the pools
Do anything you wanna
'Cause there ain't no rules
Drive your Super Stock Cobra to the long highways
And you can drag

In the city everybody's right
The kids are hip and they can dance all night
In the city all the girls are pretty and they go

E

       E              D
In the city (into the city)
In the city (into the city)
