Song: Hot Child In The City

Even if the majority of you don't understand by now that we live out here full time (no, for the last time, we won't be seeing you on the jitney come Friday), we get that the majority of you don't. While we normally give you tons of summer-y, beach-y songs to live by, we decided to share one of our favorite city-slicker songs to help you get through those tiresome weekdays till you finally make it to the much sought after weekend. So have fun being a Hot Child In The City until you can come be a cool kid in the Hamptons with us!

LYRICS:

Danger in the shape of somethin' wild Stranger dressed in black, she's a hungry child No one knows who she is or what her name is I don't know where she came from or what her game is

(Hot child in the city) (Hot child in the city) (Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty) (Hot child in the city)

So young to be loose and on her own Young boys, they all want to take her home She goes downtown, the boys all stop and stare When she goes downtown, she walks like she just don't care, care

(Hot child in the city) (Hot child in the city) (Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty) Yeah (Hot child in the city)

Come on down to my place, baby We'll talk about love Come on down to my place, woman We'll make love!

Hot child in the city (Hot child in the city) She's kinda dangerous (Hot child in the city) Young child (Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty) Young child, runnin' wild (Hot child in the city) Hot child in the city (Hot child in the city) (Hot child in the city) (Hot child in the city) Hot child in the city (Hot child in the city) Hot child in the city (Hot child in the city)
