NAKED CITY
Gene Simmons/Robert Kulick/Pepe Castro/Vini Poncia

[Rhy. Fig 1 w/ Rhy. Fig 4]
[Rhy. Fig 2 w/ Rhy. Fig 4]

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 1]
All the victims have turned to stone, no one is happy, they're all alone
I'd sacrifice my social position tonight
[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 2]
In New York, millionaires, and lonely people with lonely stares
I'm not lookin' for love and I'm lost in this night

[Rhy. Fig 1 w/ Rhy. Fig 4]
In the naked city (in the city) there are ten million stories (naked city)
[Rhy. Fig 2 w/ Rhy. Fig 4]
I'm not lookin' for pity (in the city) in this naked city (naked city)

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 1]
Street vampires in the night, young lovers and love at first sight
This is my flesh and my fantasy
[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 2]
Older women with younger men, I've got a feelin' I'm in trouble again
But I've got to live my destiny

[Rhy. Fig 1 w/ Rhy. Fig 4] (2x)
In the naked city (in the city) it's a race with the devil (naked city)
All the pain and the sorrow (in the city) is there more tomorrow (naked city)
[Rhy. Fig 3 w/ Rhy. Fig 4]
In the naked, naked city (in the city) naked city

[Solo over Rhy. Fig 6 w/ Rhy. Fig 7]
[Rhy. Fig 8] (9x)
Lonely people lookin' for someone, lonely people goin' their way
Lonely people lookin' for something, lonely people goin' their way

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ End 2 and Rhy. Fig 9]
In New York, millionaires, lonely people with lonely stares
I'm not lookin' for love and I'm lost in this night

[Rhy. Fig 2 w/ Rhy. Fig 4] (4x)
In the naked city, there are ten million stories
I'm not lookin' for pity in this naked city
In the naked, naked city (in the city), it's a race with the devil (naked city)
All the pain and the sorrow (in the city) is there more tomorrow (naked city)

[Rhy. Fig 2 w/ Rhy. Fig 4 and Outro solo](In the city, naked city)
