Damage to the City
A filk of "Summer In the City" by Lovin' Spoonful

All this damage to the city
Paint on my mech getting scuffed and gritty
Blown up, isn't this a pity
We just got done fixing ruins in the city
All around, creatures, monsters, undead
Roaming round in daylight waiting to start bloodshed

All day long this is what I do
Chase perps and yell "Stoppu!"
Oh no, oh no they go berserk
Rampage, jailbreak it is like clockwork
Meimi, if they'd just get the permits
These beasts could save me some work
So much damage to this city
So much damage to this city

So much wreckage in this city
Need to rebuild and make it look pretty
Dumb guy thinking he's so witty
All he did was create chaos in the city
A new image makes my jaw drop
Some guy's carrying a Killstick to the rooftop

(Verse 1)

Summer In the City
Lovin' Spoonful - 1966

Hot town summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirt and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city
All around people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk hotter than a match head

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come on, come on and dance all night
Despite the heat it will be alright
And babe, don't you know it's a pity
The days can't be like the night
In the summer in the city
In the summer in the city

Cool town, evening in the city
Dressed so fine and looking so pretty
Cool cat looking for a kitty
Gonna look in every corner of the city
Till I'm weezing like a bus stop
Running up the stairs gonna meet ya on the roof top

(Verse 1)
