​The City Is Hungry

This song is by Bruce Cockburn and appears on the live album Slice O' Life (2009).

The city's hungry
Hear that rumblin' under ground
The city's hungry
Hear that rumblin' under ground

You better think twice
Before you go downtown

Man on a park bench
Face in a paper sack
Man on a park bench
Face in a paper sack

Look at him flyin
Above those tall smoke stacks

River wrapped in concrete
Hills made to stand in chains?
River wrapped in concrete
Hills made to stand in chains?

Ain't the city pretty
Shines like tear drops when it rains

The city's hungry
Hear that rumblin' under ground
The city's hungry
Hear that rumblin under ground

My baby grabs me
She starts to dance around
She starts to dance around
She starts to dance around
