Take off, take off
Take off your stay-at-home shoes
Break off, shake off
Chase 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 no one to meet

Night in the City looks pretty to me
Night in the City looks fine
Music comes spilling out into the street
Colours go waltzing in time
