The Lyrics

NOTE: Jos' aka Joisey aka New Jersey
Intro:
Where's my pack?
I have no pack in the ECTO
Here we go
Yeah
Yo yo

Verse #1
Have you ever been hated, or discriminated against?
I have, I've been protestin' and demonstratin' against
Picket signs when I'm bustin' slime, chasin' the fives
Slick is the mind of the mother busting chick that's behind...
All this commotion, emotions run deep as protons exploding
Tempers flaring from mayors just heat em up and keep going
Just taking money from hauntee's, give em hell long as I'm breathing
Keep kicking ass in the morning, and do the same in the evening
Leaving with the taste of slime and exhaustion in my mouth
See they can trigger me, but they'll never figure this out
Look at this eight, I betcha really proud of the hate
Ain't you New York?, I'ma show you why the Ghostbusters were great!!

I'm sorry New York!
We never meant to hurt you.
But it's time to say good-bye.
So tonight, I'm shutting down the unit
One More Time

I said I'm sorry New York!
We never meant to hurt you.
But it's time to say good-bye.
So tonight, I'm shutting down the unit
Ha!

Verse #2
I got some skeletons in the unit
And I'm sure everyone knows it
So before they throw me inside this coffin and close it
I'ma explode it, I'll take you back a year or twenty.
Before we ever had the national credibility
I'm just a baby-baby, been bustin' a couple of months
That Peter Venkman must've had his ghosties countin' a bunch
'Cause he split, then he retired without saying goodbye
Ain't no joke. On second thought, the mayor thought it was a hoax.
I look at New York, and I couldn't picture leaving their side.
Even though they hated me, I grin my teeth and I try to do my work
With that atleast to occupy I maybe able to stop
Those that just ain't human and I'm good enough to take them today
What they did was stupid, no doubt it was dumb
But the smartest thing they did was support us right before we won
Cause it've of killed em, hell I would've shot York and then Jos'
It's our life, I'd like to welcome ya'll to the Ghostbusters show

I'm sorry New York!
We never meant to hurt you.
But it's time to say good-bye.
So tonight, I'm shutting down the unit
One More Time

I said I'm sorry New York!
We never meant to hurt you.
But it's time to say good-bye.
So tonight, I'm shutting down the unit
Ha!

Verse #3
Now I would never diss my own city when I lose recognition
Take a second to listen to just why I picked this record in dissing
But put yourself in my position, just try to invision
Witnessing your city stopping possession bills in the bustin.
Bitching that someone's always going through their houses when ghost's are messing
Going through public housing systems, victims of post-hauntin syndrome
My whole job I was made to believe I was dumb when I wasn't
Then I grew up, and then blew up it makes you sick to your stomach, doesn't it?
Wasn't it the reason you sent eviction to me, huh?
So you could try to justify the way you treated me, huh?
But guess what, they're getting stronger now and it's cold when your lonely
And New York's getting up so quick ghost's gonna know WHEN you're lonely
The buster's becoming so bad now, you should see me, I'm beautiful
But you'll never see us, we wont even be at York's "funeral" *hahaha*
See what hurts me the most, is you just admit we were wrong
S**t, drive us out, keep telling yourself that we were all done.
But how dare you try to take what you didn't help us to get
"You selfish bitch, I hope you f**king burn in hell for this shit!"
Remember when Lenny died and then New York blamed it on me?
Well guess what, you're all dead, cause this one's on me!

I'm sorry New York!
We never meant to hurt you.
But it's time to say good-bye.
So tonight, I'm shutting down the unit
One More Time

I said I'm sorry New York!
We never meant to hurt you.
But it's time to say good-bye.
So tonight, I'm shutting down the-

The pacing seems to be really good for a rap parody, but I donīt understand what itīs about. It really should have had some sort of intro for us non americans. :-(

Hmm... okay... maybe itīs just me how really dumb tonight, but itīs about the ghostbuster movies, right? For some reason, on first read, I just thought of their mentionings as some sort of NY cultural references, and TRIED (but failed that too) to find an overall meaning along the lines of "putting the blame on someone for the recent black out. *Whacks self over the head*

yes it's about Ghostbusters, if you read some of my other parodies you would find this a trend in them.
