Night in the City

This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears on the album Out of the Blue (1977).

Standin' at the airport
Lookin' down the strip
She was dryin' her eyes
She was bitin' her lip
Seven-four-seven just left from Gate 11
And there's no turnin' 'round
'Cause it's just leavin' the ground
And gettin' higher, higher

Standin' at the dockside
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, city

Night in the city, o-o-oh
Madness at mid-mid-mid-midnight
Night in the city
Drivin' you insane

In the city

In the city, city

Night in the city, o-o-oh
Madness at mid-mid-mid-midnight
Night in the city
Drivin' you insane

I was runnin' kinda lonely
At the city place
I waited for an hour
I 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, city

I'll get you, yes, I'm gonna get you
I'll get you, yes, I'm gonna get you
I'll get you, yes, I'm gonna get you
I'll get you, yes, I'm gonna get you
I'll get you, yes, I'm gonna get you
I'll get you, yes, I'm gonna get you
Drivin' you insane

Night in the city, o-o-oh
Madness at mid-mid-mid-midnight
Night in the city
Drivin' you insane
Drivin' you insane
Drivin' you insane
