Alice Cooper – Detroit City 2020 lyrics

Me and Iggy were giggin’ with Ziggy and kickin’ with the mc5

Ted and Seger were burnin’ with the fever, and Suzi Q was sharp as a knife

The kid was in his crib, and Shady wore a bib, and the Posse wasn’t even alive

Shock rock, choppin’ block, songs to make your heart stop, shove it into overdrive

Play it loud and fast

Make that guitar blast

Play it like today will be your last

Bleak town, sleak town, freak town

Detroit city

Downtown, Motown, my town

Detroit city

There was a riot ragin’ downtown, try-in’ to burn the place down, the skies were glowin’ red and gray

But the grass keeps growin’ and the money keeps flowin’, and the streets are still smokin’ today

Play it loud and fast

Cause the blues are in the past

Play it like today might be your last

Bleak town, sleak town, freak town

Detroit city

Downtown, Motown, my town

Detroit city

Bleak town, sleak town, freak town

Detroit city

Downtown, Motown, my town

Detroit city

Shake it down

Break it down

All around

Hallowed ground

Lost and found

Homeward bound

The Detroit sound

Is coming ’round

Lion town

Roarin’ down

Tiger town

On the mound

Hockey town

Shoot the puck

Take ’em down

Don’t give a what?
