Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll

[Chorus:Repeat x2]
My city sleeps by the side of a freeway, the city scraps 
And winter time she wore a yellow coat 
Now there's nothin' on her back 
If a building
When I was a young boy evening sun went down
Stand off by the railroad tracks 
And I'd listen for the sound
Of that Kansas City Southern man
city, where the kids will come cheap
And monsters prowl and never sleep
Don't cross the road if you haven't got the time of day

Well, I lost my girl
by the bay the city that rocks the city that never sleeps)

REPEAT [BRIDGE:]
REPEAT [Chorus:x2 ]

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
runnin' away from

Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?
Blinded by nostalgia
Who wants to sleep in the city that never wakes up?

When the radio breaks, when the static feels right
Tear the city up street by street, don?t sleep keep up all night
When the radio breaks, when

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll

[Chorus:Repeats x2]
You don't have to dance with me,
You don't have to dance at all.
You can just lie there looking good,
Or you can play by yourself.

We should be
Fire on the mountain
Through the freeze
Save yourself
There's evil
In the garden
But you don't see it
I can tell

How do you sleep while
This city never sleeps
I hear the people walk by when it's late
Sirens bleed through my windowsill
I can't close my eyes
Can't control what I'm into

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don't you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock an' roll

[Chorus:Repeats x2]
It's a beautiful morning 
The sky is black as ink
The city's sleeping still
And soon they'll wake up
To the stink

And soon they'll wake up
City jail city jail like an old scared dog I tuck my tail
Bow my head and not a careless word is said
Gotta sleep on the floor once more at city
When I was a young boy evening sun went down
Stand off by the railroad tracks 
And I'd listen for the sound
Of that Kansas City Southern man
hitched a ride to misery

"Mr. Whirly" had a catastrophic incident
He fell into a city by the bay
He liquidated his estate
Now he sleeps upon the Height
The roar of the train runs by my room
And on these summer nights I can't sleep anymore
I walk in the streets to greet the dawn
Or stay at home all night
Mmm did I see you planting seeds in the forest
Is it for the green of the dollars
Now don't go telling me it's for the needs of the poorest
Now
the Turnpike divides,
Waving goodbye to my former life
I don't want to be a self-medicator

But it's hard to sleep when you're born to run
I'm sick
They walk the horses home at night right by my window
They pull their carriages along busy city streets
It's from another time it's like a lullaby
hell

When I sleep I use to dream that I go there
In my dreams it is a beautiful town
A mix between London and New York City
In 77 when the best
livin' here by myself
If I leave it on

[Chorus]

I don't want to go to sleep
'Cause I just might dream
Don't want to go to sleep
You know I sure
