We Built This City / Too Much Time On My Hands Lyrics


by . From Rock Of Ages.


Regina:
Mayor, we don't really know the first thing about these people, or even what they want to build!

Hertz:
Say you don't know me,
Or recognize my face
Say you don't care who goes
To that kind of place

Regina:
Knee deep in the hoopla
Sinking in your fight

Hertz;
Too many runaways

Hertz & franz:
Eating up the night!

Hertz:
Marconi plays the mamba

Regina:
Listen to the radio!
Don't you remember?
We built this city
We built this city on…

Mayor:
Clean, efficient living?

Hertz:
Exactly!

Regina;
But mayor, think about the businesses already there! What about them!?

Dennis:
They're calling it "economic redevelopment." Apparently "the bourbon" no longer generates an "adequate tax revenue."

Lonny:
That's why i keep telling ya we need to bring back "naked jello wrestling thursdays!" But this time, check it, we let women
Enter.

Dennis:
Maybe it's time to cash it in anyway--

Drew:
Whoa, dennis?! What are you saying?!

Dennis:
It's just--
I'm sittin' on this barstool
Talkin' like a damn fool!
Got the twelve o'clock news blues
And i've given up hope
For the afternoon soaps…
And a bottle of cold brew
Is it any wonder i'm not crazy?

Lonny:
So chew a couple prozac! Come on, dennis!

Dennis:
Is it any wonder i'm sane at all?

Drew:
You do wash your hands a lot.

Lonny/ dennis/ drew/ hertz/ mayor/ franz/ regina
Is it any wonder i've got too much (clap) time on my hands

Dennis:
And it's tickin' away…

Lonny:
Tickin' away from me!
So you sell, but what do i do?! "the bourbon" is my life, man!

Dennis:
Hold the phone! You guys see who's in today's paper?!

Drew;
Monster rockers, "arsenal," are breaking up. According to sources, lead singer, stacee jaxx, will leave the band after this
Tour to pursue a solo career--

Dennis:
Perfect right? Lonny who gave stacee and arsenal their start?

Lonny:
We did so?

Dennis:
So? What if we hosted their last gig…ever.

Lonny:
The last arsenal show here?!

Dennis:
Tell that wouldn't generate an adequate tax revenue. Plus, stacee still owes me from that hotel incident with the cool whip
And the baby llama.

Lonny:
Love it.

Dennis:
I just hope it's enough.

Lonny:
It's gotta be i mean the mayor isn't a total money grubbing whore. Wink.

Regina:
Mayor, you're not thinking clearly.

Hertz:
Mayor, take ze money unt…

Hertz/ ensemble:
Rid this city!

Regina:
No!

Mayor/ hertz/ franz/ ensemble
Rid this city of rock and roll!

Regina:
Not this city

Mayor:
Regina, you're fired.

Mayor/ hertz/ franz/ ensemble:
We'll rid this city of rock and roll!!

Regina:
You're not gonna get away with this!

Lonny:
I can't believe you still have his number.

Dennis:
Stacee? It's denbo.

Stacee jaxx:
Who?

Dennis:
Dennis, dennis dupree. Listen, how would you like to do your "arsenal" farewell show here at "the bourbon?"

Stacee jaxx:
Yeah, well we already got something planned for our last tour gig in portland. So ah…

Dennis:
I understand that. But just imagine for a second your last gig in a place that started it all. A lot of press on something
Like that.

Stacee jaxx:
Yeah it sounds cool but ah…

Dennis:
And of course, we'd put your name above the band. Stacee jaxx and arsenal. One night only. Right before a solo album…which,
Just between you and me, i'm so glad you're doing. You know what i always used to say about you.

Stacee jaxx:
What?

Dennis:
Well, you're a jet fuel genius
You can solve the world's problems
Without even tryin'

Stacee jaxx:
It's true.
I have dozens of friends
And the fun never ends
That is, as long as i'm buyin'
Is it any wonder i'm not the president?

Dennis:
I'd vote for you, stacee.

Stacee jaxx:
Is it any wonder i'm null and void?

Dennis:
I don't even know what that means.

Stacee/ dennis/ lonny/ drew/ franz/ hertz/ ensemble:
Is it any wonder i've got too much (clap) time on my hands

Dennis:
And it's tickin' away

Lonny/ dennis/ drew:
Tickin' away from me!!

Stacee/ dennis/ lonny/ drew/ franz/ hertz/ ensemble:
Too much time on my hands!

Dennis:
Tick, tick, tickin' away!!

Stacee/ dennis/ lonny/ drew/ groupies/ franz/ hertz/ mayor:
Too much time on my hands

Stacee jaxx:
I don't know what to do

Stacee/ dennis/ lonny/ drew/ groupies:
Too much time on my hands

Hertz/ mayor/ franz:
We will rid this city!

Ensemble:
Too much time on my hands

Regina/ hertz/ mayor/ franz:
Of rock and roll!!

Lonny/ drew/ franz/ hertz/ mayor/ regina/ dennis/ groupies:
Too much time on my hands
Too much time on my hands
Too much time--

Hertz:
Shall i call zee bulldozers?

Dennis:
Remember the night you @*#!* with the baby llama?

Stacee jaxx/ mayor:
I'll do it.
