Heartbeat City Lyrics

by The Cars

Oh, heartbeat city here we come
And happy days count on thumbs
And nothin' really gets us down
As long as Jacki's back in town

I'm glad you made it, I can't complain
Oh, Jacki, what took you so long?
On just a holiday
Oh, Jacki, what took you so long?
I thought you knew the way
(Heartbeat city)

The noise electric never stops
And all you need is what you got
And there's a place for everyone
Under heartbeat city's golden sun
(Jacki)

Oh, Jacki
(What took you so long?)
What took you so long?
On just a holiday

Oh, Jacki
(What took you so long?)
(So long)
What took you so long?
I thought you knew the way

You know, I'm glad you made it
I can't complain
I missed you so badly
When you jumped that train

Oh, Jacki
(What took you so long?)
What took you so long?
On just a holiday

Oh, Jacki
(What took you so long?)
(So long)
What took you so long?
(I thought you knew the way)
I thought you blew the way
(Heartbeat city)

Oh, heartbeat city, lights at night
(Heartbeat city)
It's getting closer out of sight
(Heartbeat city)
Heartbeat city's on the loose
(Heartbeat city)
Better catch the blue caboose
Oh, huh, heartbeat city, it's my life

Heartbeat city
Heartbeat city
Heartbeat city
