Well, I hear in Miami
They have a lot of girls who toast their flesh in the sun
Living on allowances they receive from the old man at home
To keep up appearances, to have fun

Hey baby, living in Miami
I know you're hip to those hotel alibis
I know you're nowhere near twenty
But I ain't the kind to kiss and tell or tell lies

They are easy to look at, they are hard to hold
They have high opinions of themselves
But at night, you can find them drinking in the bar
Wishing that they could find somebody else

Hey baby, living in Miami
I know you're hip to those hotel alibis
I know you're nowhere near twenty
But I ain't the kind to kiss and tell or tell lies

Well, they pull and tug on their high fashion clothes
They feel restless in the dark
As they strip off their armor in their apartment bedrooms
They wish that somewhere they can find a spark

Well, their sights and visions and dreams are set high
They think the world can be won with a smile
I hear 'em giggle out loud, lost in the crowd
Give me a cuddle when we get outside

Well, baby, living in Miami
I know you're hip to those hotel alibis
I know you're nowhere near twenty
I ain't the kind to kiss and tell or tell lies
