1960 What? 1960 Who?
1960 What? 1960 Who?
19, hey, the Motor City is burning
That ain't right

1960 What? 1960 Who?
1960 What? 1960 Who?
19, hey, the Motor City is burning, ya'll
That ain't right

There was a man, voice of the people
Standing on the balcony, of the Loraine Motel
Shots rang out, yes, it was a gun
He was the only one, to fall down, ya'll
That ain't right, then his people screamed

Ain't no need for sunlight! (Ain't no need for sunlight)
Ain't no need for moon light! (Ain't no need for moon light)
Ain't no need for street light (Ain't no need for street light)
It's burning really bright (Real bright)
Some folks say we gonna fight (Gonna fight)
Cos' this here thing just ain't right (Ain't right)

Whoooooo

Motor city is burning, ya'll

Great god of mine, the Motor City's burning!

Whoooooo, it's burning

Young man, coming out of a liquor store
With three pieces of black liquorice, in his hand, ya'll
Mister police man thought it was a gun, thought he was the one
Shot him down, ya'll, that ain't right
Then his momma screamed!

Ain't no need for sunlight! (Ain't no need for sunlight)
Ain't no need for moon light! (Ain't no need for moon light)
Ain't no need for street light (Ain't no need for street light)
