Nick Gilder released his first and only number one hit in October of 1977. It originally appeared on the album City Nights – which has never been released on CD. All the ladies in the house are lucky though, because this song is included on almost any compilation of 70s music sold on tv. When I was a little kid I could not tell for sure if it was a boy or girl singing.

Girls, if you are having a bad day, I encourage you to sing this to yourself while working the runway of your school/office/home hallway. You are going to look like a goofball, but do you really give a crap? NO! you are a

HOT CHILD IN THE CITY

Danger in the shape of somethin' wild
Stranger dressed in black, she's a hungry child
No one knows who she is or what her name is
I don't know where she came from or what her game is

Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city
Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty
Hot child in the city

So young to be loose and on her own
Young boys, they all want to take her home
She goes downtown, the boys all stop and stare
When she goes downtown, she walks like she just don't care, care

Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city
Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty
Yeah
Hot child in the city

Come on down to my place, baby
We'll talk about love
Come on down to my place, woman
We'll make
looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove!

Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city
She's kinda dangerous
Hot child in the city
Young child
Runnin' wild and lookin' pretty
Young child, runnin' wild
Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city
Hot child in the city

Oh these little lyrics are feeling so sad. I cannot node the guitar solo for you! You must go now, and find an mp3 or a compilation at Tower Records and listen to the song so you can be a confident goofball – strutting your stuff wherever you go.
