Lyrics (from the Begin to Hope liner notes):
Summer in the city means
Cleavage cleavage cleavage
And I start to miss you, baby, sometimes
I’ve been staying up and drinking in late night establishments
Telling strangers personal things

Summer in the city
I’m so lonely lonely lonely
So I went to a protest just to rub up against strangers
And I did feel like coming but I also felt like crying
And it doesn’t seem so worth it right now

And the castrated ones stand on the corner smoking
They want to feel the bulges in their pants start to rise
At the site of a beautiful woman
They feel nothing but anger
Her skin makes them sick in the night
Nauseous nauseous nauseous

Summer in the city
I’m so lonely lonely lonely
I been hallucinating you, babe, at the backs of other women
And I tap them on the shoulder and they turn around smiling
But there’s no recognition in their eyes

Summer in the city means
Cleavage cleavage cleavage
And don’t get me wrong, dear
In general I think I’m doing quite fine
It’s just when it’s summer in the city
And you’re so long gone from this city
I start to miss you, baby, sometimes

When it’s summer in the city
And you’re so long gone from the city
I start to miss you, baby, sometimes
