"Worse Than Detroit" as written by Robert Plant and Robert Blunt....
Operator, give me Central Central
Help me try to get my baby on the line
Information, hear me calling, calling
Find that number, give it to me one more time
It's been so long since I saw her
Anything I'd give to hear the little girl of mine
Whatever it takes, got to make it, make it
Please connect me now before I lose my mind

Because I don't know, no, I don't know what I'm gonna do
No, I don't know, no, I don't know what I'm gonna do
Tastes so good, sweet as honey, honey
All she carries is impossible to use
It's built for speed, man, watch her coming, coming
Moves so fast in someone else's shoes
Looks so fine, Lord, watch them running
Anything she wants you feel obliged to do
Keep your hands in your pockets

She can shift more gold than the king of Peru
But I don't know, no, I don't know what I'm gonna do
No, I don't know, no, I don't know what I'm gonna do
Somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody, yeah
Somebody, somebody, somebody, somebody, yeah

Man drinks whisky, drive him crazy in time
Woman sits and cries as day will follow day
Man need lovin', keep him happy sometime
Woman gets some when the honeydripper's on his way

But I don't know, no, I don't know
What I'm gonna do
But I don't know
But I don't know
No, I don't know, no, I don't know, no, I don't know
Yes, no, yes, no, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah

She can do it, she can do it, she can do it, babe
Oh yes, she's sweet as honey, sweet as honey
Sweet as honey, oh yeah
She's sweet as honey - oh yeah!

    Song FactThe title of the song (apparently) comes from a line in the 1980 movie, "Airplane!" Main character Ted Stryker is describing bar he frequented during the war: "It was a rough place - the seediest dive on the wharf. Populated with every reject and cutthroat from Bombay to Calcutta. It's worse than Detroit."
