"Raised In The City" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Raised in the city
Ready to run
Cruise to the lake
Fun fun fun
Disinclined to groove around

Raised in the city
Raised on beers
She gets rubber
In all four gears
Disinclined to lay down

Get outta my way
I can't see it
Outta my way
Can't see no band

Raised in the city
Ready to drop
Cruise to the lake
Call my pop
Tell him that I'm doin' just fine

Raised in the city
Ready to listen
Keep tellin' me
What I been missin'
Why don't you just sit down

Get outta my way
I can't see it
Outta my way
Can't see no band

Raised in the city
Ready to run
Cruise to the lake
Fun fun fun
Disinclined to groove around

Raised in the city
Till I'm old
Buy a car maybe
When I'm old
This my goddamn band
Fix my goddamn head

Outta my way
I can't see it
Outta my way
Can't see no band
Outta my way
I can't see it
Outta my way
Can't see no band

    General CommentMy friend from MN has told me that the "can't see no band" stuff is a reference to the low stage at some Minneapolis venue (7th Street Entry?).
