It ain't just a name
It's who we supposed to be,
but sometimes it don't feel nuttin' like The City of Brotherly Love
Sometimes it's just the opposite
That waitress act like she don't want a tip
and center city business men in suits more expensive than monthly rent
walk right past a homeless mother
Sometime thugs be puttin' slugs in each other.
Sometimes our brothers aint even our brothers
We all brothers
Like when the Bullies take the ice
or anybody take a bite of cheese steak or bean pie
or the poet spits fire
or the elders pass wisdom
snow rain or shine
Can't nothing keep us off these streets.
We painted these walls with visions and dreams
The founders of this city had a reason for the name they chose.
It was a hope, a goal
and it's a different town today
but it's never too late to live up to our name.
Shoot from the hip and swing for the fences
this train is bound for glory
who's comin' with me?
Philadelphia, city of brotherly love
A Tall Order
but by faith The Lord can make us what we are,
and let's go be what they call us.
