Chorus:
We built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and 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 and roll

Chorus:
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 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 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

It's just another Sunday, in a tired old street
Police have got the choke hold, oh then we just lost the beat

Who counts the money underneath the bar
Who rides the wrecking ball in to our rock guitars
Don't tell us you need us, 'cos we're the ship of fools
Looking for America, coming through your schools

(I'm looking out over that Golden Gate bridge
Out on another gorgeous sunny Saturday, not seein' that bumper to bumper traffic)

Don't you remember ('member)('member)

(It'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 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
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock and roll

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

(Repeats out)

    I like this song it is catchy it goes like this! :)

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

    Chorus:
    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 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 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

    It's just another sunday, in a tired old street
    Police have got the choke hold, oh then we just lost the beat

    Who counts the money underneath the bar
    Who rides the wrecking ball in to our rock guitars
    Don't tell us you need us, 'cos we're the ship of fools
    Looking for america, coming through your schools

    (i'm looking out over that golden gate bridge
    Out on another gorgeous sunny saturday, not seein' that bumper to bumper traffic)
