Song Meaning
Verse 1
Going to the city, got you on my mind,
Country sure is pretty, I'll leave it all behind,
This is my decision, I'm coming home to stay this time.
Verse 2
'Cause I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city,
Fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city.
Verse 3
Breathing all the clean air, sitting in the sun,
When I get my train fare, I'll get up and run.
I'm ready for the city, air pollution here I come!
Verse 4
'Cause I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city,
I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city.
Verse 5
I'm like a fish out of water, I'm just a man in a hole.
The city lights turn my blues into gold.
I ain't no country boy, I'm just a homesick man.
I'm gonna hit the grit just as fast as I can.
Verse 6
I'm tired of laying back, hanging around,
I'm gonna catch that train, then I'll be city bound.
Verse 7
{Rod - Solo}
Verse 8
I ain't no country boy, I'm just a homesick man.
I'm gonna hit the grit just as fast as I can.
Verse 9
I'll get off on Main Street, step into the crowd,
Sidewalk under my feet, yeah, traffic's good and loud.
When I see my inner city child, I'll be walkin' on a cloud.
Verse 10
'Cause I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city,
I'm a fool for the city, I'm a fool for the city...
I'm a fool, (Fool for the city) A fool for the city, (Fool for the city)
I'm a fool, (Fool for the city) A fool for the city, (Fool for the city)
I'm a fool, (Fool for the city) A crazy fool, (Fool for the city)
Verse 11
I'm a fool yea, (Fool for the city) A fool for the city, (Fool for the city)
(Fool for the city) (Fool for the city)
I ain't no country boy, woo! (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city)
Woo! (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city)
A Fool for the city (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city)
Who! (Fool for the city) (Fool for the city) ...
