       A                 D  A
In the heart of the city,

Where the alligators roam,

I'm a little lost when,

Ain't got no place to go.

Now I ain't got one minute,
           A              D  A
Just gotta sit on my back,

I left home in a hurry,

'Til I'm never going back.

I'm looking for a home,

Now I'm stepping on the street,

And I'm looking for a lover,
         A                  D  A
Looking, looking everywhere.
          A                 D  A
Maybe I'm in with a chance?
       A              D  A
I hear clickety clack.

It's a girl my lord,

Turning double fast.

Well in the heart of the city,
          A                 D  A
Well it's part of the stars.

I hear that cassette music,
     A                D  A
On a thousand guitars.
         A                     D  A
Hey, the boys are on the prowl,
        A                 D  A
They're checking out meat.
            A                D  A
They know a bird in the hand,
         A                 D  A
Is worth two on the street.

They're checking the meat,

In the heart of the city.
