E5addD E6  E5addD E  E5addD         E6        E
Light up, light up,  light up your lazy blue eyes
A/E   E5addEb      E    A/E                  F#m11
Moon's up, night's up, taking the town by surprise
E5addD E6   EaddD   E   E5addD       E6   E
Night time, night time, day left an hour ago
A/E  E5addEb  E   A/E                   F#m11
City light time, must you get ready so slow
           E5        E   Esus4 E  E5addEb Esus4 E
There are places to come from and pla-   ces    to go

E5  E  Esus4 E  E5addEb  Esus4  E

CHORUS #1:
E5            E5addEb    Esus4    E
Night in the city looks pretty to me
E5            E5addEb   F#m11/E
Night in the city look fine
E5           E5addEb     Esus4       E
Music comes spilling out into the street
E5        E5addEb      F#m11/E  F#m11
Colors go flashing in time

E5addD  E6  E5addD  E 

Take off, take off, take off those stay at home shoes
Break off, shake off, take off those stay at home blues
Stairway, stairway, down to the crowds in the street
They go their way, looking for faces to greet
But we run on laughing with noone to meet

CHORUS #2:
Night in the city looks pretty to me
Night in the city looks fine
Music comes spilling out into the street
Colors go waltzing in time

E5addD  E6  E5addD  E
