The Lyrics

Enjoy the parody!
We built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.
Built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.

Say you hear those bells, and you don’t start to drool.
Say you don’t keep some quarts, who does that at school?
Knee deep in vanilla, sinking in the blah.
Don’t go to Hahvahd Yahd just to pahk yeh cah.

Marconi eats the almonds, listen to the marshmallows,
Don’t you remember? We built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.

We built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.
Built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.

Someone’s always playin’ soda jerkin’ games,
Who cares? I always know the soda jerkers’ names.
I just wanna eat here, someone stole my spoon,
Called me irresponsible, I think he’s a loon.

Marconi eats the almonds, listen to the marshmallows,
Don’t you remember? We built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.

We built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.
Built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.

It’s just another Friday on a blazing hot street,
We got a triple scoop now, oh, and we just beat the heat.

Who uses money on Danishes and scones?
Who takes the wrecking ball to our bowls and cones?
Don’t tell them ya know us, ‘cause we’re from outer space,
Looking for Australia, breakin’ up the pace.

[spoken]:
I’m lookin’ out over that Brooklyn Bridge on another Sunday, Sunday, Sunday, and I’m seein’ those monster ice cream trucks.

Don’t you remember-member-member?

[spoken]:
What’s your favorite ice cream parlor in your favorite ice cream city?
Sin City, The Motor City, The Windy City.

Marconi eats the almonds, listen to the marshmallows,
Don’t you remember? We built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.

We built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.
Built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.
Built this city…
(Oh, oh)
We built this city on rocky road.
Built this city…
We built this city on rocky road.

We built, we built this city…
(We built this city…)
We built, we built this city…
We built, we built this city…
(We built this city…)

You've stirred up something big in my Muse, Dylan. I think I'm going to be able to add something to your Rocky Road parodical ouerve .. whatever the 'eff that means. It wasn't fully formed by last night, but it's getting there. I almost had it. Should pop up by Monday
