My City

Lyrics

My City

In the Northeast there’s a man on his feet
He keeps on working so his family can eat
Right down the street, there’s a woman at a store
Waiting for her love to get back home from war
At City Hall, there’s a man standing tall
On this building just looking at us all

That’s my city
I love my city, city
Hand on my heart, for Philadelphia
I knew it from the start, I have love for her
That’s my city, She’s so pretty
I have love for her, Philadelphia

People walking up and down Broad
College girls on Cecil B. Moore
Pandemonium when the Flyers on ice
Eagles just won, now watch them fly high
Crowd goes insane watching those Sixers games
The Phillies took it all in 2008

That’s my city
I love my city, city
Hand on my heart, for Philadelphia
I knew it from the start, I have love for her

That's my city, She’s so pretty
I have love for her, Philadelphia
I knew it from the start, my hand on my heart
I have love for her, Philadelphia
Let’s take a ride on Kelly Drive
People on bikes riding by
And on the radio, Will Smith’s “Summertime”

That’s my city
I love my city, city
Hand on my heart, for Philadelphia
I knew it from the start, I have love for her

That's my City, She's so pretty
I have love for her, Philadelphia
Hand on my heart, for Philadelphia
I knew it from the start, I have love for her

That’s my city, She’s so pretty
I have love for her, Philadelphia

I knew it from the start
My hand on my heart
I have love for her, Philadelphia

I knew it from the start
My hand on my heart
I have love for her, Philadelphia
