Detroit, Michigan Submit Correct Lyrics

Talkin' 'bout soul, soul, soul
Hey Memphis
Talkin' 'bout rock n roll
Hey Texas
New York City's uptown grooves
A little Mississippi Delta blues
Flossin' Austin and the Boston Pops
And everybody knows that Cleveland rocks

Talkin' 'bout girls, girls, girls
California
Talkin' 'bout fine, fine girls
Oklahoma
A downtown Nashville honky-tonk
Some big fat back beat DC funk
Jacksonville and the Southern rock
In New Orleans the party never stops

Detroit, Michigan, yeah
Detroit, Michigan, yeah
Detroit, Michigan, yeah

Ya heard about Marvin Gaye, we got him
Can I get a witness?
Talkin' bout Hitsville USA we got it
How sweet it is
We got those fine, fine super Supremes
The kind of girls ya see in your dreams
When ya hear our thunderin' sound
Ya know it comes from Detroit town

Talkin' 'bout Rosa Parks we sent her
Talkin' 'bout Henry Ford the inventor
Talkin' 'bout Aretha yeah we got her
The Queen of Soul
Bob Seger yeah we got him
And that old time rock n roll
Slim Shady set the world on fire
The Big Three baby and the finest cars
George Clinton's P Funk all stars
We spend our days on the line and our nights in the bars

Detroit, Michigan, yeah
Detroit, Michigan, yeah
Detroit, Michigan, yeah
Detroit, Michigan, yeah
Detroit, Michigan, oh yeah
Detroit, Michigan, yeah
