Lyrics
johnny wont have a fire, no burning in his soul, he's sitting on the corner by the station hotel, as the people come and go spare a little change sir? no one wants to know, he doesn't have a hearts desire, as he waits there in the cold, chorus
its a lonely city,its a lonely city,hi hi,
its a lonely city,its a lonely city,my my
susie hangs out on the corner, in her little black dress,she's looking so good,
she's a working girl with a kid at home, and she's getting by anyway she could, are you loking for business boy? she'll do anything for you, she's only there because life's unfair, keeping a lookout for the boys in blue chorus
it's a lonely city,it's a lonely city,hi hi,
it's a lonely city,it's a lonely city,my my,
bowler hats,business suits, leather briefcases and shiny black shoes, with your backs up straight,heads held high,
but underneath we're all the same inside,
susie could be your daughter,johnny might be your son, it could be you sitting over there,thinking that lifes'race was run,
are you looking for business boy?
spare a little change sir?
chorus
it's a lonely city,it's a lonely city,hi hi,
it's a lonely city,it's a lonely city,my my,
spare a little change sir?
