  • The city is ours
    The city is ours

    Rollin' past graffiti walls,
    Billboards lighting up the block
    Everyone of us on a mission
    Got a whole crew by my side
    Cars beep, beep when they pass us by
    We ready to get down to business

    We pull up, open the door
    All the girls, scream there they are
    It's packed from wall to wall
    And, everybody is calling
    Here they come, it's almost time
    Feel the rush, now hit the lights
    We gonna get it all started

    Because the night is young
    The line is out the door
    Today was crazy but,
    Tonight the city's ours
    Live it up
    Until the morning comes
    Today was crazy but,
    Tonight the city is ours
    The city is ours
    The city is ours

    My, my look how we roll
    Was it only a month ago
    Everybody said we were dreaming
    Now we're here like, yeah we told ya
    Still far, but we're that much closer
    And there ain't no way that we're leaving (oh no)

    We pull up, open the door
    All the girls, scream there they are
    It's packed from wall to wall
    And, everybody is calling
    Here they come, it's almost time
    Feel the rush, now hit the lights
    We gonna get it all started

    Because the night is young
    The line is out the door
    Today was crazy but
    Tonight the city's ours
    Live it up
    Until the morning comes
    Today was crazy but tonight
    The city is ours
    The city is ours

    We gotta believe
    It's destiny calling
    So night after night
    We rock the whole place out
    As hard as it seems
    I know if you want it
    Then it's gonna happen some how

    Because the night is young
    The line is out the door
    Today was crazy but
    Tonight the city's ours
    Live it up
    Until the morning comes
    Today was crazy but tonight

    Because the night is young
    The line is out the door
    Today was crazy but
    Tonight the city's ours
    Live it up
    Until the morning comes
    Today was crazy but tonight
    The city is ours
    The city is ours
    The city is ours
    The city is ours
