Songtekst

We built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' roll

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

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

We built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' 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 'n' roll

We built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' roll

It's just another Sunday, in a tired old street
Well if you got the toco, oh, then we just lost the beat

Who counts the money underneath the bar
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

(I'm looking out over that Golden Gate bridge
Out on a gorgeous sunny Saturday, I've seen that low amount of traffic)

Don't you remember (remember)

(Here's your favorite radio station, in your favorite radio city
The city by the bay, the city that rocks, the city that never sleeps)

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

We built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' roll

We built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock 'n' roll

(We built, we built this city) built this city (we built, we built this city)
