DETROIT ROCK CITY - Paul Stanley, Bob Ezrin

"You Wanted The Best, You Got The Best... The Hottest Band In The World....

KISS!"

[Rhythm Fig. 1] w/[Rhythm Fig. 2]

[Rhythm Fig. 3]
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

[Rhythm Fig. 4] w/[Rhythm Fig. 4a]
Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

[Rhythm Fig. 5] w/[Rhythm Fig. 5a]
You gotta lose your mind in Detroit Rock City

[Rhythm Fig. 4] w/[Rhythm Fig. 4a]
Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

[Rhythm Fig. 3]
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

[Rhythm Fig. 4] w/[Rhythm Fig. 4a]
Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

[Rhythm Fig. 6] w/[Rhythm Fig. 6a]
[Rhythm Fig. 4] w/[Rhythm Fig. 4b]

[Rhythm Fig. 3]
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

[Rhythm Fig. 4 w/end.1] w/[Rhythm Fig. 4a w/end.1]
Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
Get down
Everybody's gonna leave their seat

[Solo I] 
[Solo Ia] & [Solo II]

[Rhythm Fig. 3]
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

[Rhythm Fig. 4] w/[Riff. 1]
Get up
Everybody's gonna move their feet
[Rhythm Fig. 4] w/[Riff. 4] then [Riff. 3]
Get up
Everybody's gonna leave their seat
