  1. City Life

From the recording Jersey Stories Part 1

wriiten 9/5/78---Me and my cousin Anthony were working on a scaffold on the Perth Amboy Public Library in the middle of the very hot summer of '78. That is where I go when I sing this song-on that scaffold.

Lyrics

City Life

Take a look around
whatcha callin' what you see?
is it not quite what you had hoped it be?
look at the sites ya know they ain't quite so pretty
caught in the grind and ya can't get out of this
city life city life city life

load your dreams on a magic carpet ride
sail them off to a cloud so far nearby
"I hope you make it don't take too long" she told me
"find your place, cause there ain't no space in this
city life", city life, city life

load your dreams on a magic carpet ride
sail them off to a cloud so far nearby
