Hotter Than A Match Head

1st August, 2012

Hot town, summer in the city / Back of my neck feeling dirty and gritty / Been down, isn’t it a pity / Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the cityAll around, people looking half dead / Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match headBut at night it’s a different world / Go out and find a girl / Come-on come-on and dance all night / Despite the heat it’ll be alrightAnd babe, don’t you know it’s a pity / That the days can’t be like the nights / In the summer, in the city / In the summer, in the city ~ The Lovin’ Spoonful|LOOK 1| Karen Walker sunnies, vintage Chanel earringsMiss Jackson bikiniZimmerman shoes
