You gotta love this city, love this city, you gotta love this city You gotta love this city, love this city, you gotta love this city
Too sick for breakfast The car wouldn't start The train was really full And his girlfriend had a boyfriend The houses all the same Now here's the rain Not falling but collapsing at his feet A deep breath and he clocks on Raincoat on his arm He wishes the hours would disappear But the trip's in vain coz awaiting him A lay-off notice and his severance pay He shuffles back to the train again
