BARENAKED LADIES lyrics - Hello City

BARENAKED LADIES
"Hello City"
(Steven Page / Ed Robertson)

Another night at the Palace 'cause there is nothing else to do
The same people, the same drinks, and
The same music, the same quicksand
I think this harbour town is waist deep and sinking fast

Hello city
You've found an enemy in me
Hello city, hello city
Hello city

Second night at the Warehouse and my mock-turtleneck just reeks
From the liquor room to the change room
To the doom and gloom of the hotel room
I think this seaside beer hall should sink into the bay

Hello city
You've found an enemy in me
Hello city, hello city
Hello city

Maybe I caught you at a bad time
Maybe I should call you back next week
Maybe half the fault is mine
That the sun didn't shine on Barrington Street

It's three o'clock in the morning and I'm hungry, so let's eat
Climb down three flights to the streetlights
And the bar fights, we're just taking in the sights
I hope tomorrow that I wake up in my own bed

Hello city
You've found an enemy in me
Hello city, hello city
Hello city

"What a good place to be, don't believe them
'Cause they speak a different language and it's never been happy for me
It's Happy Hour again
It's Happy Hour again"

Hello city
Hello city
