Born and raised in the Detroit area, I wrote this song in the 80's when my boys were young.. I think it was the FIRST rap song !!! It is been updated to keep up with the NEW Detroit!

(TWO boys (9 and 12) SAY to the MOM
Mom we're so bored - there's Nothing to do!
(Mom Says)
Hey Guys don't you know
this is Motown
There's tons of places to go
(Mom Sings)
Let me tell you just what we got
In Detroit City
Our Wheels Don't Stop
We're Motor City
in the USA
Henry Ford the First
He paved the Way
Detroit's Hot
Detroit's Got
Mayor David Bing
To Take Us to the Top
Windsor Canada
So Neighborly
Bridge - River - Tunnel
to a Foreign Country
Hart Plaza - Ren-Cen
and Cobo Hall
The Greatest Eateries
All Ports Of Call
Detroit's Hot
Detroit's Got
Eastern Market
Where its fun to Shop
Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Wings
Home of Joe Louis - the Boxing King
Across the Nation - you all know Lee
He saved our Chrysler and Lady Liberty
Detroit's Hot
Detroit's Got
The Symphony Orchestra Beethoven or Bach
Motown Music, Casinos Too,
Science Center - Fine Arts to View
Fischer Theater the Detroit Zoo
DownTown, Greek Town
Rock, Soul, Jazz and Blues
The People Mover in Now in Gear
