Alice Cooper – Detroit City lyrics

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

Ted and Seger were burnin’ with fever

And let the Silver bullets fly

The Kid was in his crib, shady wore a bib

And the posse wasn’t even alive

Shock rock choppin’ block, songs to make your heart stop

Shovie it in ta overdrive

Playing loud and fast

Make that guitar blast

Playing like today will be your last…

Well I was born there

Gonna die there

With all my long hair

Detroit City

You feel your heart beat

You hit the concrete

Dance the mean street

Detroit City

There’s a riot raging downtown

Tryin’ to burn the place down

Skies glowin; red and grey

But the Riff kept a Rockin’

The Creem kept a-talkin’

And the streets still smokin’ today

Playing loud and fast

Make that guitar blast

Playing like today will be your last…

Well I was born there

Probably die there

With all my long hair

Detroit City

You feel your heart beat

You hit the concrete

Dance the mean streets

Detroit City

Six mile seven mile eight mile nine mile

Ten mile eleven mile Detroit city

Louder

Faster

Louder

Detroit City

Well I was born there

Gonna die there

We don’t belong here

Detroit City

You feel your heart beat

Hit the concrete

Dance the mean street

Detroit City

Well I was born there

Probably die there

With all my long hair

Detroit City

You feel your heart beat

You hit the concrete

Dance the mean street

Detroit City
