See that man going in the bank with a blue suit
He's carrying a bag full of very important paper
There's old Mac trying to busk with his new flute
Did you read about the Cambridge raper?

Street in the city
Street in the city on a working day
Street in the city
Street in the city on a working day

Those girls pass every day
They seem to think to I'm funny
It's just a game that they're playing
Till they can claim their personal man
Gonna lean back on my wall and pray for her knickers to fall

See that woman with a bun in her hair
Don't she know that's ain't still done anywhere?
See that man going in the Wig and Pen
He was charged with telling lies again

 G/D         G6/D             G               G6/D
   I see the world go by as I lean against my wall

Street in the city
Street in the city on a working day
Street in the city
Street in the city on a working day

There's a man up on that ledge
He's only cleaning windows
What a shame, who's to blame
For the pain?
