  • The kids 'round here look just like sticks
    They trade old licks with a beat up six
    I just smile and catch the groove

    Gothic girls all dress in black
    Serious as heart attacks
    It takes a little bit of getting used to

    The old man with the whiskey stains
    Lost the night forgot his name
    His poor wife will sleep alone again
    And it ain't hard to understand
    Why she's holding on to her own hand

    Chorus:
    It's midnight in chelsea, midnight in chelsea
    No one's asking me for favors
    No one's looking for a savoir
    They're too busy saving me

    (repeat chorus)
    I've seen a lone,sloane ranger drive
    Seems her chauffeur took a dive
    And sold her secrets to the sun
    And later in a magazine
    I finally figured what it means
    To be a saint, not a queen

    Two lustful lovers catch a spark
    And chase their shadows in the dark
    Someone's getting off tonight
    Of a big red bus that's packed so tight
    It disappears in a trail of light
    Somewhere someone's dreaming baby it's all right...

    Chorus:
    It's midnight in chelsea, midnight in chelsea
    No one's asking me for favors
    No one's looking for a savoir
    They're too busy saving me
    Midnight in chelsea, midnight in chelsea
    No one's pinned dreams on me
    No one's asking me to bleed
    I'm the man i want to be
    When chelsea girls sing...

    It's morning when i go to sleep
    In the distant dawn a church bell rings
    Another day is coming on
    A baby's born, an old man dies
    Somewhere young lovers kiss good-bye
    I leave my soul and just move on
    And wish that i was there to sing this song

    Chorus:
    It's midnight in chelsea, midnight in chelsea
    No one's asking me for favors
    No one's looking for a savoir
    They're too busy saving me

    It's midnight in chelsea, midnight in chelsea
    No one's pinned dreams on me
    No one's asking me to bleed
    I'm the man i want to be
    The man i want to be,the man i want to be
