If you are a Detroiter, then you may remember this tune:
Go 4 it, Go 4 it, take a chance and Go 4 It,
Go 4 it, Go 4 it,
What you got to show if you don’t try,
It’s closer than you think,
Take a look, you’re on the brink, it’s there
You can do it if you dare, there is no room for doubt,
Just let it out
Go 4 it, Go 4 it, take a chance and Go 4 it,
Go 4 it, Go 4 it
