Thanks to Jill Goodman and Dave Clark for their help with the lyrics

City girls, they're not the same
Different breed, given a different name
Such strut and sass
Chrome-plated class
It's their court, it's their ball and their game

Whoa they know so much better than you
What you're gonna think, what you're gonna do
And they turn it out
They leave no doubt
They were old when the world was new

City girls
Yeah, loose curls
Sweet hips
Yeah sweet lips

High gloss
Quick toss
Tight skirts
Whoa, love hurts
City girls
I love city girls
City girls
Gimme city girls

Country girls, they're so sweet so nice
But me I like to skate on thinner ice
I like city girls, love city girls
Twice the fun, six times the price

City girls
I love, I love, I love city girls
City girls
Gimme, gimme, gimme city girls
City girls
City, city, city girls
City girls
