Intro: Dm Bb 
Dm                     
Hot town, summer in the city,
Bb                      Bb7
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty,
Dm        
Been down, isn't it a pity?
Bb                   Bb7
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city,
A                 A7     
All around people looking half-dead,
Dm                       
Walking on the sidewalk, 
D/F#
Hotter than a match head.

G                   C         G
But at night it's a different world,
G          C      G
Go out and find a girl,
     G           C             G
Come on, come on and dance all night,
G                      C    G
Despite the heat it'll be alright,
    Em              A
And babe, don't you know it's a pity,
    Em            A7
The days can't be like the nights,
       Em            A
In the summer in the city,
       Em            A   Dm Bb7 A7
In the summer in the city,

Dm         
Cool town, evening in the city,
Bb                      Bb7
Dressed so fine and looking so pretty,
Dm       
Cool cat looking for a kitty,
Bb                   Bb7
Gonna look in every corner of the city,
A                  A7
Until I'm wheezing at the bus stop,
Dm                         
Running up the stairs 
      D/F#
Gonna meet, ya on the roof-top.

G                   C         G
But at night it's a different world,
G          C      G
Go out and find a girl,
     G           C             G
Come on, come on and dance all night,
G                      C    G
Despite the heat it'll be alright,
    Em              A
And babe, don't you know it's a pity,
    Em            A7
The days can't be like the nights,
       Em            A
In the summer in the city,
       Em            A   
In the summer in the city.

Break: 

D      G                   C         G
Aargh, but at night it's a different world,
G          C      G
Go out and find a girl,
G                    C         G
Come on, come on and dance all night,
G                      C    G
Despite the heat it'll be alright,
    Em              A
And babe, don't you know it's a pity,
    Em            A7
The days can't be like the nights,
       Em            A
In the summer in the city,
       Em            A
In the summer in the city,
       Em            A   F#m B F#m
In the summer in the city
B             F#m B F#m B
Summer in the city,
Em      Bm A C B7            Em  Bm A C C7
Hot town,      summer in the city,
     Em   Bm A C B7             Em   Bm A C C7 
Cool town,       evening in the city,   aargh,
Bm     C      C7            B         Em
Living in the city, getting dirty and gritty,
Bm            C  C7
Living in the city, 
B      Em              Bm A C
In the summer time baby,
B             Em               Bm       C7
Summer in the city, cool town, cool girl,
B             E
Living in the city.
