Verse 1: Come on, ev'rybody and gather 'round.
Let's sing a song about our hometown.
A city that's packed with things to do,
Jobs and sports and shopping, too!
CHORUS: Granite City, Granite City, Granite City, It's the place to be.
Granite City, Granite City, Granite City, The place for you and me.
Verse 2: Available housing and places to play,
Hotels and motels for people to stay,
'Wanna go shopping? That's just fine.
There are lots of places to shop and dine.
Verse 3: We're the home of the Warriors-We are so proud!
We cheer on the teams by chanting out loud.
State soccer champs from our hometown,
Better athletes can't be found.
Verse 4: We've a "4th of July festival" that's so much fun.
The firemen set off fireworks when the carnival is done.
There's a holiday parade with many things so grand.
It's highlights are Santa's float and the high school band.
Verse 5: In winter we've got ice and snow,
So, to the ice rink - off we go!
Rollerblading in the springtime, Biking in the fall,
Swimming in the summer, Granite City has it all!
