We built this city on Rock and Coal

Chorus:
We built this city, we built this city on rock and coal
Built this city, we built this city on rock and coal

If you’ve never lived here, or visited our place
Make time to marvel, at the city of lace.
Knee deep in the history, England’s Midland Queen.
Too many people have never ever been

Robin was an outlaw, gave to the poor.
Don’t you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock and coal

Chorus:
We built this city, we built this city on rock and coal
Built this city, we built this city on rock and coal

Someone always shouting, Nottingham’s name.
Whoever hears us, the message is the same
Raleigh Boots, Sillitoe and Hood
All made Nottingham so good.

Robin was an outlaw, he gave to the poor, don’t you remember?
We built this city, we built this city on rock and coal

We built this city, we built this city on rock and coal
Built this city, we built this city on rock and coal

Not just another city, full of tired old streets.
Our culture has taken hold, and now we’ve got the beat

Who counts the slabstones in Old Market Square,
In the city of rebels, we never had a care.
Don’t tell us what to do, we’re out on our own
Looking for lackeys? We’ve got a backbone

(I’m looking out over that Old Market Square
Out on another gorgeous sunny Sunday, just seein’ that Nottingham vibe)

Don’t you remember (‘member)(‘member)

(It’s your favourite radio station, in your favourite radio city
The city by the Trent, the city that rocks, the city that never sleeps)

Robin was an outlaw, he gave to the poor, don’t you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock and coal

We built this city, we built this city on rock and coal
Built this city, we built this city on rock and coal
Built this city, we built this city on rock and coal
Built this city, we built this city on rock and coal

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