Ninja Sex Party - We Built This City Lyrics



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

Someone's 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
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
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 the ship of fools
Looking for America
Coming through your schools

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
Built this city
We built this city on rock and roll

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

We built this city now
Built, built
Built this city
Built, built
We built this city now
Built, built
Built this city
Built, built
We built this city now
Built, built
Built this city
Built, built
We built this city now
Built, built

    How GQ could vote this as the worst song of all time when shit like 'Barbie Girl', 'the Cheeky Song' and 'The Mr Blobby Song' (which by the way, got to no.1 in the UK in 1993 no less) exist, proves that the general public have a truly awful taste in music.

    My GOD this song is cheesy....But....Cheesy in all the right ways.

    Danny looks like a young Michael Bolton.

  43. You can know play as Luigi

  54. Art Against Anxiety

    I would pay an excessively large amount of money for a blue blazer with the NSP pin symbol on the back like dannys wearing in this. Just saying. Merch Idea.

  55. SwagHags69

    "Someone's always playing, corporation games

    This is amazing

  58. DJas118

    Dan, please sing "Kyrie" by Mr. Mister! <3 :'( Please?

  59. Vasxus

    I PET THIS KITTY

  60. Doug forsythe

    If you change it from “we built this city on rock and roll” to “the two big titties of rock and roll.” The song gets 100% better.

  61. Jaker The Snaker

    I like the idea of when Danny is inactive, Ninja Brian resides near him at all times.

  71. Soggy Bread Person

  82. Alvoroço

  83. Bryan Louis

    this is and was my favorite song as a kid in the 1980's. i think this artist that is doing this song is just doing a cover ...

    Bool

    ...It appears to you that this artist is doing a cover, because this is, in fact, a cover.

    Bryan Louis

    If you do a cover, make sure you do a good job at it too....

    Bool

    @Bryan Louis Oh, I misunderstood and thought you actually didn't understand the concept of what a cover was-


    Well I guess that's your opinion then.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  84. DarkMario

    3:26 Am I the only one that think Dan Look like the Joker are this part?

  85. NuVanDibe

    dear fucking god right now i just had to go and listen to the original just to get this ear rape out of my head what are they gonna butcher next africa by toto or perhaps land down under by men at work?

    The Space Of Ades

    I mean, most of NSP's covers are really good. This one isn't great, but that's partially because the original isn't very good either.

    ilovebeingtheultimatebrony1234

    @The Space Of Ades it's better than this piece of shit

  100. SethBlizzard

    All we need now is a NSP-Def Leppard collab and all will be right with the world.

    Nice to see another def leppard fan

    SethBlizzard

    @theSLAYERFREAK I'm actually not a fan but I know Dan is and I imagine he would love to collab with them.
