Song Lyrics

Written & Composed by Steve Porcaro & John Bettis.



Looking out

Across the night-time

The city winks a sleepless eye

Hear her voice

Shake my window

Sweet seducing sighs


Get me out

Into the night-time

Four walls won`t hold me tonight

If this town

Is just an apple

Then let me take a bite

Chorus

If they say -

Why, why, tell `em that is human nature

Why, why, does he do me that way

If they say -

Why, why, tell `em that is human nature

Why, why, does he do me that way


Reaching out

To touch a stranger

Electric eyes are ev`rywhere

See that girl

She knows I`m watching

She likes the way I stare


If they say -

Why, why, tell `em that is human nature

Why, why, does he do me that way

If they say -

Why, why, tell `em that is human nature

Why, why, does he do me that way

I like livin` this way

I like lovin` this way

(instrumental section)


Looking out

Across the morning

The city`s heart begins to beat

Reaching out

I touch her shoulder

I`m dreaming of the street

Chorus

If they say -

Why, why, tell `em that is human nature

Why, why, does he do me that way

If they say -

Why, why, tell `em that is human nature

Why, why, does he do me that way

I like livin` this way


(Repeat Chorus - Ad-lib/fade-out)
