John Butler Trio - Livin' In The City

 

Tekst oryginalny

Bells are ringing on your alarm clock
It's six in the morning,
man the race don't stop
It's just shit, shower,
shave just make it to the station
Waiting for the train...
goddamn train late again
Hit the streets and they are seething
Ducking, weaving, begging, stealing
Got you kneeling and you're feeling
That you wanted more

That's how it goes livin' in the city
Everybody getting down to the nitty gritty
They don't look back, they don't take no pity
Hey ya know I never said it would be pretty
That's how it goes livin' in the city
Everybody getting down to the nitty gritty
They don't look back, they don't take no pity

Well I get to the office and delete my spam
Delete me, delete my plans
Working everyday for the goddamn man
Sometimes I wonder just who I am
Well I'm gonna go postal
Gonna have a death toll
Be the head hunter
Then I'm gonna move coastal
Everything's gonna be just fine
Working everyday on my gold mine

That's how it goes livin' in the city
Everybody getting down to the nitty gritty
They don't look back, they don't take no pity
Hey ya know I never said it would be pretty
That's how it goes livin' in the city
Everybody getting down to the nitty gritty
They don't look back, they don't take no pity

That's how it goes livin' in the city
Everybody getting down to the nitty gritty
They don't look back, they don't take no pity
Hey ya know I never said it would be pretty
That's how it goes livin' in the city
Everybody getting down to the nitty gritty
They don't look back, they don't take no pity
Hey ya know I never said it would be pretty
