Send my love to the city
Cause I'll be having an affair this summer
And this town's very gritty
So I'll be living off the life of another

You say come back, relax!
I drinks stacks and move slow, move out the window
Get a job, learn to dance,
Grow plants, hear fascist remarks and chants

Wear velvet, walk the street
Smoke Gouloises, laugh at the people you meet
Drink long island, be an island
You're an island, then this is your island

Well you're stranded out there
You're the policeman out there
You're the law-aw-aw out there
You are the one who rules out there

So you laugh in the face of disgrace
You're the leader of the pack
This is your generation
Grab your A-Zs
Flick in the back
And plan world domination

Send my love to the city
Cause I'll be having an affair this summer
And this town's very gritty
So I'll be living off the life of another

You say you're are a city avenger
In an English garden waiting for the sun
You've been caught with your pants down
You say 'I am the walrus'
But it really hasn't hit town

I say 'darling, do you laugh or cry
Or scream or howl at midnight
Is it wise to go out alone
Without a phone in your hand?'

Is the man, who grasped the lies
And he ate the pies
Which had the facts in
To kill all the experts and what they are trapped in

So breathe some air
Run away for a day, a lover not a tearaway
My friend, the city is close
But clarity is far away.

Send my love to the city
Cause I'll be having an affair this summer
And this town's very gritty
So I'll be living off the life of another

[interlude]

Send my love to the city
Cause I'll be having an affair this summer
And this town's very gritty
So I'll be living off the life of another

Send my love, oh send my love
Send my love, send my love, send my love, oh
Break my heart, oh break my heart,
Break my heart, break my heart, break my heart, oh
Send my love, oh send my love
Send my love, send my love, send my love, oh
This town, oh this town
This town is tearing me apart
And the city's dead up in my head
The city's dead up in my head
And it got you nowhere, no
To be romantic and square
Is so hip and aware
Romantic and square
So hip and aware
Romantic and square
So hip and aware
Romantic and square
So hip and aware
So send my love...
Won't you please send my love...
Please break my heart!
