The Lyrics

It's all in fun...
When the fights go down in the city,
And the gangs come out to play,
It smells like a dump there, it's so gritty,
Whoah-oh-oh

From Detroit, you say?
Well my friend I'm from there too.
I'll never go back, I'm so glad I got away.
Whoah-oh-oh.

It's sad, oh,
Even Kid Rock and Eminem didn't live there.
They would have die-ay-ied.

Whoah, na na na na, na na na na na
Whoah-oh-oh

Well it bites bein' down in the city,
When the sports teams start to play.
But I cannot believe, they're all sh**ty,

Whoah, oh, oh.

When the lights go down in the city,
The night before Halloween day,
It looks like a wasteland, it ain't pretty.

Whoah-oh-oh
