Bright lights, big city
Went to my baby's head
Oh bright light, the big city
Went to my baby's head
Well I tried to tell the woman, she don't believe a word I've said

Go ahead, pretty baby
You'll need my help some day
Oh go ahead, pretty baby
Going to need my help some day
You're going to wish you had listened to some of those things I've said

Go ahead, pretty baby
Honey, knock yourself out
Oh go ahead, pretty baby
Honey, knock yourself out
Well I tried to tell the woman but she don’t know what it’s all about

Bright lights, big city
Went to my baby's head
Oh the bright lights, the big city
Went to my baby's head
Well I tried to tell the woman but she don’t believe a thing I said
