City Song

"Portlandia"
 
Resolution 34547, adopted by the Portland City Council on May 3, 1989, established "Portlandia," by Marc C. Miller, as the Portland City Song. The lyrics are as follows:
 
 
PORTLANDIA
 
Old town, downtown, fountains and lights,
The Willamette reflecting our city at night
From bridges, nightspots in neighborhoods, too.
Together, we grow in love and respect for you.
 
Hours, days, weeks at a time,
Holiday weekends, time to unwind.
From winter's reign through summer's fall,
The lady of seasons belongs to us all.
 
Portlandia
 
Gazing upon the busy streets,
Reflecting the mountain's history
Through her eyes,
She fills me with pride.
