​If You're Goin' To The City

This song is by Mose Allison and appears…

If you're up goin' to the city
You better have some cash
If you're up goin' to the city
You better have some cash
With all the people of the city
Don't mesh around with trash

And when you get up get to the city
You better lock your door
And when you get up get to the city
You better lock your door
You know they take what you got, boy
And then they laugh for more

And when you get up get to the city
You better learn to shout
And when you get up get to the city
You better learn to shout
So if you don't stand up an holler
You gonna get left out

And if you stay up in the city
There's just two things I hope
I said if you stay up in the city
There's just two things I hope
That you don't take money from a woman
And you don't start messin' 'round with dope
