Consider all the cities of the world.
London, Paris, Rome... their flags unfurled.
But there's a special city that I love.
The city that I'm always thinking of.
Philadelphia! What a lovable town.
Philadelphia spreads the red carpet down.
Nowhere in this world will you find so many friends!
This is where it all began, and history ends.
Philadelphia is a city of cheer,
And remember old Ben Franklin slept here.
The people are great, and they're very slow to hate.
Hitch your gig to a star
In Philadelphia, PA.
