Take a walk around midnight in the city
Young blood is hiding there somewhere
If you're looking for something to do
There's always something happening there

Like I & Bragger, we borrowed a coupe today
Here come Pepe and she's got a friend in a Chevrolet
But she ain't running, she's walking a little slow
And she ain't crying, she's just singin' a little low

They say this city will make you dirty, but you look alright
You feel real pretty when he's holding you tight
City will make you mean but that's just make-up on your face
Love will wash you clean in the night's disgrace

Find a block where your people can find you
Keep your third eye watching behind you
You never know when you're making a memory
They will wish they were here together again, someday

Kids looking for something to get into, take a look
Two for the movie show, three in the back row, hold on tight
Remember, you might have looked like cool twelve
But your fuse felt just like dynamite

This city will make you dirty, but you look alright
You feel real pretty when he's holding you tight
City will make you mean but darlin', that's just make-up on your face
Love will wash you clean in the night

Take a walk around midnight in the city
Young blood will find you there, somewhere
And if you're looking for something to do
There's always something happening there

Something's happening there
Something's happening there
Look here, y'all
