​Philadelphia

This song is by Atom And His Package and appears on the album A Society Of People Named Elihu (1997).

I sit at rittenhouse park and see a guy from time
Cycle give the finger to a passing motorist and it kind of makes me smile
This is the city of brotherly love and crime
And we only bombed our own city once, once
I'll show you around the city and where you can't go after dark
And if skating's your thing I'll show you where you cannot skate in LOVE park
The dialer doesn't work on any of our phones but here's the place that we call our home
Philly's the place where the mummers are weird and I do not think the Phillies have won in years
I beg Mayor Rendell and the cops on the street
To have mercy on me and Jen and please blow up South Street
Philadelphia, get to know us
Philadelphia, get to know us
The Philadelphia Parking Authority can go fuck its own face
And yeah sure we got our problems in dealing with race
The statue of William Penn ... sitting all ...
Well he's kind of a loner if you look at it from the right angle it looks like he has a boner
Philly's the place where the mummers are weird and I do not think the Sixers have wonin years
I beg Mayor Rendell and the cops on the beat
To have mercy on me and Jen and please blow up South Street
Philadelphia, get to know us
Philadelphia, get to know us
Hey Brian, did you know Cinderrella's from Philadelphia,
And we have uh Independence Hall here too yeah
But we also got Frank Rizzo and Delaware Avenue Yeah!
Philadelphia, get to know us
Philadelphia, get to know us
