We Built This City
By Starship

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 dont know me or recognize my face
Say you dont 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, dont 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 theyre 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, dont 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

Its 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 two rock guitars
Dont tell us you need us, cos were the ship of fools
Looking for america, coming through your schools

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

Dont you remember (member)(member)

(whats 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, dont 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)

L o L... that's the nice thing about it. If you like the song, you can vote for it, and if you like the design by itself, you can vote for it. I'm not quite the fan of the song as my hubby is. Even when I was done with it though, the design is so strong, I figured it could appeal to more than just those who appreciate the song.

Where's the Coit Tower or the Transamerica Building?

The song is about San Francisco.

Still, has my vote. My mom is an old hippie and loves that song.

Honestly, I didn't want to draw landmarks. I wanted it to be wearable by more than just those from San Fransisco. Besides the fact the last time I was in San Fransisco, I was less than 6 months old, I wouldn't be able to tell you of any landmarks than the bridge.

L O L Not my favorite song... it's one of my hubby's favorite songs. But the design and idea came together so well, I had to submit it.

Thank you so much to everyone who has voted on this piece! I'm so happy it's doing so well. If you liked this one, check my signature and vote for Peaches or Black Hole Sun (and if you really like it, vote for BauHaus' Bela Lugosi's Dead) !!
