Going out with all my boys
Hit the city all night long
Oh Lars and Will (??)
Down at the mill
And little Larry gunna tag along
Rollin' deep, comin' up
Not asleep, waking up
Got a light? smoke it up
Zig Zag, Roll it up

You are a memory 'cause
She is the future
Hold on tight
I'll be the teacher

Take this city
Take this city by storm

Here we go again
Here we go tonight
Gotta keep it going, gunna make it alright
Life is so short so ya gotta keep it tight
Gotta keep movin till day and night (??)

So many people, I'll never know
I'll never get to see where they're from
So what's your name?
Say it again
I wanna hear it again and again, again, again, again

Take this city
Take this city by storm

Na na na na na na naaaaaa
Na na na na na na naaaaaa
Na na na na na na naaaaaa
Na na na na na na naaaaaa

Take this city
Take this city by storm

Big city life, well here's my day
There's a crack in the picture, when it goin break?
It's a catch 22, catcher in the riot
Busted and shot down now you gunna die
Listen to the sounds of the reggae and soul
Buy me a cab and here we go
All over town, gunna rock and roll
It's all I ever done girl, all I ever known

Yeh!
Just give us one moment, watch this...

    General CommentGood lyrics, but I have a few corrections
    instead of catcher in the riot, it's catcher in the rye

    And after it's: caught stealing, shot down

    Instead buy me a cab it's "riding in a cadillac"
