Someone’s city not mine, that’s what I’m shown
Amidst all this construction I stand alone
So will we always feel like strays?
And will we always count the days?

Someone’s city not yours, you can’t get inside
It’s not just money or class, it’s a question of pride
I recognized the way you came in here tonight
This city don’t want you
So you don’t want the city alright
This city don’t want you
So you don’t want the city alright
Alright, alright

Someone’s city not mine
Someone’s city not mine

And I could bite my tongue and get close to the bone
Till one day I can afford what people call a home
But this is
Someone’s city not mine
Someone’s city not mine.
