lyrics

All the cities get bigger every year
More the asphalt and less the earth
More noise but less to hear
More crimes and more to fear

What a pity that the city doesn't end where it should
What a pity that the city doesn't end where it could

Children partying, drinking beer
Designer clothes you must wear
Gotta smoke pot to be in the gang
Your phone's been stolen twice in a tram

What a pity that the city doesn't end where it should
What a pity that the city doesn't end where it could

I don't live in the city, but I have a life
Less the people, less the strife
I don't live in the city, but I've got friends
I don't live in the city, it's not the end

What a pity that the city doesn't end where it should
What a pity that the city doesn't end where it could

O, New York
M, Milan
G, Beijing

O, Berlin
M, Moscow
G, Tallinn

Come on, London!
