Beautiful City

This song is by Lloyd Cole and appears on the album Rattlesnakes (1984).

Get into the hot seat
If it hurts not to be seen
Or if you want to hit back
This is the place to be at

Spin your partners round and round
Don't think another thought
Don't get caught short
You might get bought

You know I'd like to take you by the hand
But I never get the chance
Oh it's easy to be cool when you're in a trance
Isn't that right?

Blair's on alcohol
I'm on ice cream
Causing the craziest scene

This is a beautiful city
That's a beautiful smile
Though I could never live here
Could I stay for a while?

I'd just packed my bags for Memphis
So that I could learn the blues
But this city turned out so wild
I had to tell the whole crew

Being no place for a boy to fall in love
I naturally did
Now we're dancing around your flat
To Leopardskin Pillbox Hat

Social climbing

We were just passing through
It's true I just seem to stumble into things
Yes, we just settled down
Mostly nobody seemed to notice

This is a beautiful city
Full of beautiful kids
All so keen to get hip
Mostly still biting their lips

C and W

You know I'm hopeless without you
