This song is by Nick Lowe and appears on the album Jesus of Cool (1978) and on the compilation Sounds of the Seventies: Punk and New Wave (1993).

Original video
We're in the heart of the city
Where the alligator roam
I'm a little lost lamb
Ain't got no place to go

I ain't got one penny
Just got a shirt on my back
I left home in a hurry
And I ain't never goin' back

I'm lookin' for a lover in the heart of the city

Well, I'm a standin' on the street
And I'm a steppin' off the end
Yeah, I'm lookin' for a lover
Lookin' lookin' everywhere

Maybe I'm in with a chance
I hear a clickety clack
There's a girl my Lord
I see her stop, check, turn and double back

Lookin' for a lover in the heart of the city

I'm lookin', I'm lookin', I'm lookin', I'm lookin'
I'm lookin', lookin', lookin', lookin' everywhere
In the heart of the city

We're in the heart of the city
We're in the heart of the stars
I hear the crash of music
A hundred thousand guitars

And the boys are on the prowl
And they're checkin' on me
They know a bird up in the hand
Is worth two out on the streets

Checkin' on heat in the heart of the city

Heart heart of the city
Heart heart, oh yeah
Heart heart of the city
Heart heart, oh yeah

Heart heart of the city
Heart heart, oh yeah
Heart heart of the city
Heart heart, oh yeah

Heart heart of the city
Heart heart, oh yeah
Heart heart of the city
Heart heart, oh yeah

Heart heart of the city
Heart heart, oh yeah
Heart heart of the city
Heart heart, oh yeah
