DETROIT ROCK CITY
Paul Stanley, Bob Ezrin

"... congressional reports.  President Ford says that he's disappointed with Congress's performance.  
In Detroit, a Pontiac, Michigan youth was reported dead at the scene of a head-on collision on Grand Avenue 
this morning.  The youth was reportedly driving on the wrong side of the boulevard when he struck a delivery
 truck and was catapulted through the windshield of his car.  
The driver of the truck is reported to be uninjured. 
The identities of both men are being withheld by local police. County legislatives today are expected to rally
 to the aid of striking longshoremen in hopes of ending the 9 month deadlock ..."

"..roll all night and party every day
I wanna rock and roll all night and party every day"

[Rhy. Fig 5 w/ Rhy. Fig 6] (2x)
I feel uptight on a Saturday night
Nine o' clock, the radio's the only light
I hear my song and it pulls me through
Comes on strong, tells me what I got to do
I got to

[Rhy. Fig 13a]
Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

[Rhy. Fig 7 w/ Rhy. Fig 8]
You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City

[Rhy. Fig 13 w/ Rhy. Fig 13b]
Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

[Ryy. Fig 5 w/ Rhy. Fig 6] (2x)
Getting late
I just can't wait
Ten o'clock and I know I gotta hit the road
First I drink, then I smoke
Start up the car, and I try to make the midnight show

[Rhy. Fig 13a]
Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

Movin' fast, doin' 95
Hit top speed but I'm still movin' much too slow
I feel so good, I'm so alive
I hear my song playin' on the radio
It goes

Twelve o'clock, I gotta rock
There's a truck ahead, lights starin' at my eyes
Oh my God, no time to turn
I got to laugh 'cause I know I'm gonna die
Why

[Rhy. Fig 14 w/ Riff 1]
Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
