We built this city
We built this city on rock and roll
We 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

We built this city
We built this city on rock and roll
We 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
We 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, and we just lost the beat

Who counts the money
Underneath the bar
Who rides the wrecking ball
Into our guitars

Don't tell us you need us
'Cause we're just simple fools
Looking for America
Calling through your schools

I'm looking out over that golden gate bridge
Out on a gorgeous sunny Saturday
I've seen that bumper-to-bumper 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 and roll

We built this city
We built this city on rock and roll
We built this city
We built this city on rock and roll
