Standin' at the airport Lookin' down the strip She was dryin' her eyes, She was bitin' her lip 747 just left from gate eleven, And there's no turnin' round 'Cos it's just leavin' the ground And getting' higher Standin' at the dock-side Lookin' out to sea, When I saw her But she did not see me There she stood with no hope Because she'd missed the boat, And as her dreams sailed away, She headed back for the day, Back to the city. Night in the city, oh, oh, oh, Madness at midnight Night in the city, Drivin' you insane. I was runnin' kinda lonely At the city place Waited for an hour Never saw her face. Crazy ladies that wait, And slide around like a snake, I just can't take anymore, I'm going in through the door, Into the city. I'll get you, yes, I'm gonna get you I'll get you, yes, I'm gonna get you Driving you insane
