Back in the City

 
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Back in the City Tad:
Jamie!

Jamie:
Tad!

Tad:
Monstrous events are scheduled for tonight
I went away, just for the day
To see my family
What a bore
Too many cocktails on the lawn
Discussing sodomy and nuclear war
Another yuppie puppy party
In Connecticut suburbia
The global meltdown has begun
And it’s beginning in suburbia
I lit across the bridge, I flew into a cab
I caught the first train back

Tad and Girl:
Grand Central Station here I come
I need the middle of your
Fastest, fastest track

Tad:
And then I get there and walk east on 42nd
To the place where the light hits the sky
That’s right, yeah
And I stand on my tiptoes and scream at the rooftops,
‘Hey, did you miss me?
Come over and kiss me!’
It’s great to be back in the city

Chorus:
Great back in the the city

Tad:
It’s great to be back in my town

Chorus:
Great back in my town

Tad and Chorus:
Great to be back where such plenty goes down
I got plenty to go around

Tad:
Look at the people
Swarming around like flies
They don’t know me

Tad and Chorus:
I’m a hundred stories high

Tad:
I’m lookin’ out my penthouse window
At the New York City skyline, I say,
‘Honey baby, you’re all mine.’
Yeah
It’s great to be back in the city

Chorus:
Great back in the the city

Tad:
It’s great to be back in my town

Chorus:
Great back in my town

Tad:
Back in the town where such

Tad and Chorus:
Plenty goes down
And there’s plenty to go around

Chorus (repeated):
1984

Tad:
There’s money falling from the sky
Grab some, have some

Tad and Chorus:
Falling too fast
(Falling to fast)
Running too free
(Running too free)
Happy just to be in heartbreak
Jumping too far
(Jumping too far)
Crashing the ledge
(Crashing the ledge)
Dancing on the edge of heartbreak
Put all the hookers around the door
Turn down the tricks at the bar
Never the less, here we are
The more impossible it is to get in,
The more we want to explore

Chorus (repeated):
1984

Coke Girl:
The drugs make you feel the music
And the music makes you want more drugs

Chorus:
Heartbreak

Jamie:
And all you need is one more popper
One more vodka
One more topsy-turvy, hunky-dory
Manic, manic, magic high

Jamie and Chorus:
Listen to the voices
Raging round inside your head again
Like a message from the Vatican
They’re watching as you’re slipping,
As you’re ripping into tripping
Are you willing to be killing
All the dreams that you are having?
Skipping, dripping, slipping, sliding
When you really should be flying from heartbreak
Welcome to the party baby, come on in
Bright lights, big city

Jamie:
We’ll get you in the middle of the universe

Jamie and Chorus:
Bright lights, big city
Look at the lights
We’ll get you in the middle of the universe in 1984
Bright lights, big city
