Look at me now, we're on the town
Kicking up dust, it's all for us
City lights, pretty lights just take me out to play

Dressing me up as red for luck
So much to do to hide the blue
City lights, pretty lights just wear me out they say

Buttons and ribbons are finding their place
Smearing the makeup I put on my face
Spiders and lizards are tying my shoes
Whispering da da da, da da da, da da da

Finding my crutch, a gentle touch
Finding my dance, retreat, advance
City lights, pretty lights just wring me out to dry

Buttons and ribbons are finding their place
Smearing the make-up I put on my face
Spiders and lizards are tying my shoes
Whispering da da da (da da da), da da da (da da da), da da da
