MC5 - Motorcity is burning 1973 live

Ya know, the Motor City is burning baby,
there ain't a thing in the world they can do.
I said, Motor City is burning baby,
there ain't a thing in the world they can do.

My home town burning down to the ground,
worser than in Vietnam.
But I tell you
how it started on 12th & Clairmount that morning.

It made the cops upside all freak out,
you know, it started on 12th & Clairmount that morning,
It made the gestapo jump and shout.
The fire wagons kept comin',
but the snipers wouldn't let them put it out,
wouldn't let them put.

(Instrumental)
There were fire bombs bursting all around,
Yes and soldiers standing everywhere.
I said there was fire bombs bursting all around me, people,
Yes and National Guard was standing everywhere.

I can hear my people screaming.
and sirens fill the air, come on, come on, come on.

(Guitar solo)

Your mama and papa don't know what the trouble is.
See, they came seeing what it's all about.
Ah said, mama and papa don't know what the trouble is
they just can't see what it's all about.

Reading the news, cause the newspapers,
I'm just get out there in the street
and check it out, check it out, check it out!

Ah said, the Motor City is burning, baby,
and I say in a world they can do it
Ah said, the Motor City is burning, baby,
and I say in a world they can do it.

My hometown is burning down to the ground
worser than in Vietnam.
