"Hot Child In The City" as written by Nick Gilder and James Mc Culloch....
Danger in the shape of something wild,
Stranger dressed in black she's a hungry child.
No-one knows who she is or what her name is.
I don't know where she came from or what her game is.

Hot child in the city,
Hot child in the city,
Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty,
Yeah,
Hot child in the city.

So young to be loose and on her own.
Young boys they all want to take her home.
When she comes downtown the boys all stop and stare.
When she comes downtown she walks like she just don't care,
Yeah.

Hot child in the city,
Hot child in the city,
Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty,
Yeah,
Hot child in the city.

Come on down to my place baby, we'll talk about love.
Come on down to my place baby, we'll make love.
Hot child in the city. Hot child in the city.
Hot child in the city runnin' wild and lookin' pretty,
Hot child in the city.

Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city.
Hot child in the city

    General CommentActually you're all right. Except you, sir, in saying the other 2 are wrong. Direct quote from Nick Gilder himself: "I've seen a lot of young girls, 15 and 16, walking down Hollywood Boulevard with their pimps. Their home environment drove them to distraction so they ran away, only to be trapped by something even worse. It hurts to see that so I tried writing from the perspective of a lecher — in the guise of an innocent pop song."
    Both runaways & prositution....poor girls

    General CommentI heard that this song is about a young runaway that the singer wants to pick up. It's kind of creepy, but I love the song.

    General CommentNo your both wrong its a known fact that the song is about a young child as a hooker in the city. and all the guys want her because she is so young.

    General CommentI think it is about a guy that is desperate to get laid and luckily, he has met a rather easy lady that will gladly fulfill his needs.
