We Built This City
Starship


We built this city!

We built this city on rock and roll
Built this city
We built this city on rock and ro-oll!

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
Too many runaways
Eating up the night.

(Chorus:)

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 always playing
Corporation games
Who cares they're always changing
Corporation names.

We just want to dance here
Someone sold the stage
They call us irresponsible
Write us off the page.

(CHORUS)

It's just another Sunday
In a tired old street
Police have gotten a chokehold
And we just lost the beat.

Who counts the money
Underneath the bar?
Who rides the wrecking ball
Into rock guitars?

Don't tell us you need us
'Cause we're the simple fools
Looking for America
Crawling through your schools.

(Radio announcer:)

Looking out over that Golden Gate Bridge on another
gorgeous, sunny Saturday, I've seen that bumper-to-bumper
traffic.

Don't you remember...ember

(Radio announcer:)

It's your favorite radio station
Your favorite radio city,
The City by the Bay
The City that Rocks
The City that Never Sleeps...

(CHORUS)

Built this city
We built this city on rock and roll
Built this city
We built this city on rock and ro-oll.

(Main Singers) (Background, faint)
We built..we built this city now
Built this city We built..we built this city
We built..we built this city now
Built this city We built..we built this city
We built..we built this city now
(fade out, repeating)
Built this city We built..we built this city
We built..We built this city now
Built this city We built..we built this city
We built..We built this city now
