Sunday Song #10: "We Built this City" By Starship

We built this city,
We built this city on rock and roll, built this city
We built this city on rock and roll, oh!

Say you don't know me, or recognize my face;
Say you don't care who goes to that kind of place.
Knee-deep in the hoopla, sinking in your fight.
We got too many runaways eating up the night!

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember?
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll.

We built this city
We built this city on rock and roll, built this city
We built this city on rock and roll

Someone's always playing corporation games;
Who cares, they're always changing corporation names.
We just want to dance here, someone stole the stage.
They call us irresponsible, write us off the page.

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember?
We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll

We built this city,
We built this city on rock and roll, built this city
We built this city on rock and roll, built this city
We built this city on rock and roll, built this city
We built this city on rock and roll!

It's just another Sunday in a tired old street,
Well, if you got the taco, oh, then we just lost the beat.
Who counts the money underneath the bar?
And who writes the wrecking ball in two wild guitars?
Don't tell us you need us, 'cause we're just simple fools,
Looking for America, coming through your schools.

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember?
We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll
We built this city
We built this city on rock and roll, built this city
We built this city on rock and roll, built this city
We built this city on rock and roll, built this city
We built this city on rock and roll, oh!
