Rupert Holmes – Philly lyrics
Woo

Momma you came from northern Tennessee
Pappa you said the country's no good for me
You had so much to gain you moved on to Pennsylvania lights
Philly you were the time where I was born
Philly you're where I am now come come torn
So much for making millions seems like I've seen a billion nights

Oh but Philly you've been the friend I never knew
Philly your brother left was always true
Philly you've been beside me bright or blue

Woo
Woo

Brother pushing the night you'll never win
Sister you spread your life a little too thin
I have no time for greavin'
Too hard just breakin' even then
Philly dudes from New York don't know your face
Don't need nobody else we got our own place
They live it's down to earth
At least we know what we're worth amen (amen)

Oh but Philly you've been the friend I never knew
Philly your brother left was always true
Philly you've been beside me bright or blue

(Instrumental)

So much for making millions seems like I've seen a billion nights
Oh but Philly you've been the friend I never knew
Philly your brother left was always true
Philly you've been beside me bright or blue

Woo
Woo

Philly...
Philly...
Philly...
Philly...
