"City Girl" as written by and Heather Shannon Nik Kaloper....
No more will I look around and wonder how it all began
No more will I look around for you

Flex a muscle
Turn a light on
In your blind spot
What's the time fox?
Thinking clearly
Stepping up and over

And baby, I don't wonder why
You feel I remind you of...
And baby, I don't wonder why
I hit the ground running every time

But, gee, I get rush
I get shivers inside when you call
Let it all unfold
Let it show, Fortune
You'll be a city girl
And saying goodbye to the sweet simple life that you knew
Ooh hoo, toodaloo
It's true
You're through
Through with the old world

Every month this shit gets awry
Know my body tells a story
Of the earth in all her pain and glory

Running towards it (maybe powerwalkin')
How are you?
Caught the flu?
Well, I only know I want you to adore me

And baby, I don't wonder why
You feel I remind you of...
Maybe I don't wonder why
I hit the ground running every time

And going by the candlelight
And hoping I'll seal my....

Gee, I get out on the streets late and I walk
Let it hurl, unfurl on the world, go berserk
Get on your own turf

Someone will hand you a sweet proposition one day
And you'll say, say, "G'day
How you doin' Fortune?"
You'll be a city girl soon.

Gee, I get rush
I get shivers inside when you call
Let it all unroll like a troll on you
Get in the bar and grill
Rubbin' them titties on edges of cities and worlds
Let the old control go home and groom,
You'll be a city girl soon.

    Lyric CorrectionI'm pretty sure it's "what's the time flux?" rather than "what's the time fox?"

    My InterpretationAnother fantastic song, this reinforces my interpretation of Nobody Nowhere, this is the story of the same unluckly poor farm gal/servant/slave. I love when the singer hides and lightly pronounces "shit" and speaks it in a first person, like she's really cursing her situation, as if she is actually speaking this in a position of servitude where her boss, or superiors or peers if hearing her will be for ill, meaning our poor fair lady is in a real shit position where saying shit can mean consequences which are highly undesirable. Basically its the story of our "cinderella" the poor provincial/farm/poor girl, who runs away to the big city, for a better life. There is a clapping effect in the middle of the song, and a change of tone, like the welcoming and congradulatory praise of the crowd/audience/city folk, brilliant song, and album, it is an epic musical as an album.
