Stuck In The City

from by Babymachine



Got into central 'bout quarter past five
The trains are late but they're never on time
Went down to George st for something to eat
Places to go and people to meet

It was ten when I got to the show
Rockin' out in the front row
Had to escape, get out of my rut
Expensive beer in a cheap plastic cup

Back in the city, back in the city

Well it was great and things started to shift
Too many posers with their 6ft quiffs
While drinking beer and catching up with some mates
I didn't realise it was getting real late
The encore started I was checking the time
Gotta get out, got to break through the line
I'll never make it back home at this rate
I've got to catch the 11:38!

(oh no!) Stuck in the city
(oh no!) Stuck in the city
(oh!) Came for a good time
(no!) So I could unwind
But now I'm stuck in the city
(oh!) Came for a good time
(no!) I'm gonna lose (blow) my mind
Now I'm stuck in the city

The last train is gone
Stuck in the city
The last train is gone.... oh no!

Guess I'll be sleeping at central tonight.... good night!
