I'm starting to get started

I'm moving out with my man

Now, Eva, don't get carried away

Monotony passed, suburbia departed

Who could ever be fond

of the back of beyond

Don't hear words that I didn't say

What's that?

You desert the girl you love?

The girl I love?

What are you talking about?

She really brightened up

your out of town engagement

She gave you all she had.

She wasn't in your contract

You must be quite relieved

That no one's told the papers

So far.

I want to be a part of B.A.,

Buenos Aires, Big Apple.

Would I have done

What I did

If I hadn't thought

If I hadn't known

We would stay together?

Seems to me there's no point in resisting

She's made up her mind,

you've no choice

Why don't you be the man

who discovered her?

You'll never be remembered for your voice.

The city can be paradise

For those who have the cash

The class and the connections.

What you need to make a splash

The likes of you get swept up

In the morning with the trash

If you were rich or middle class...

Screw the middle classes!

I will never accept them

My father's other family were middle class

And we were kept out of sight

Hidden from view at his funeral

Do all your one night stands

Give you this trouble?

Eva, beware of the city

It's hungry and cold

Can't be controlled

It is mad

Those who are fools

are swallowed up whole

And those who are not become

What they should not become

Changed, in short they go bad

Bad is good for me

I'm bored, so clean and so ignored

I've only been predictable, respectable

Birds fly out of here.

So why, oh why, oh why the hell can't I?

I only want variety of society

I want to be a part of B.A.,

Buenos Aires, Big Apple.

She wants to be a part of B.A.,

Buenos Aires, Big Apple.

Five years from now I shall come back
