"Sunny Day, Highland Park" - The Tour De Troit Fight Song

"Sunny Day, Highland Park" by Mike Fitzgerald
Parody of "Saturday in the Park"  by Chicago

Sunny day, Highland  Park
I think it was the Fourth of July
A running day in Highland Park
I think it was the Fourth of July
Suitcase-toting people fighting
A man yelling loudly
"Give me my GPS"
Running’s awesome, there’s a possum
Is it dead (I think it is)
And Joann’s waiting at the next block
This sunny day

Another day in the dark
It was the twenty-fourth of July
On our way, to Comerica Park
It was the twenty-fourth of July
Sun is rising, Detroit’s shining
John’s in the Suburban
Searching for us all
He found us at the DIA
Can you pose here (yes, we will)
And we’ll be running such a long time
This Saturday

Ran past the hookers on the corners of Woodward
An old can for some man, it was a dime that he preferred
Sleeping people along the road
A big barking dog
Oh no, no

Saturday, Highland Park
The day's the Twenty-fourth of July
Made our way through Highland Park
The day's the Twenty-fourth of July
We are smiling, we are knowing,
A breakfast at Leo’s
Is waiting for us all
If you want to, really want to
We can plan it (yes we can)
We’ll be planning out the next time
For Tour De Troit

original version

"Saturday in the Park" by Chicago

Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
Singing Italian songs
Eicay vare, eise narde
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For Saturday

Another day in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
Another day in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July
People talking, really smiling
A man playing guitar
Singing for us all
Will you help him change the world
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For today

Slow motion riders fly the colors of the day
A bronze man still can tell stories his own way
Listen children all is not lost
All is not lost
Oh no, no

Forty days in the park
Every day's the Fourth of July
Forty days in the park
Every day's the Fourth of July
People reaching, people touching
A real celebration
Waiting for us all
If we want it, really want it
Can you dig it (yes, I can)
And I've been waiting such a long time
For the day
