    Alone in [] city

    Hello!
    My question is a very simple one.
    Is there any possibility to use the phrase
    Alone in city
    this way, without ANY article? If it is a poem or a song? Because I know there is a song called
    Best thing in town (Green Day).
    Any comments would be welcomed.
    Thanks!

    We use "in town" but not "in city".
