The Lyrics

Well I always had a problem with New York
There’s a lot of crime, from Harlem to The Projects
And after a while you get tired of hearing about it
Goes all the way from the City to Jersey
The Mob controls it all anyway
Never even heard of Al Capone

Aren’t you glad we don’t live there
Aren’t you glad there’s still a few of us left, who know where to live
Ain’t afraid to travel there once in a while.
Aren’t you glad we don’t live there

What’s so wrong with control?
Well, gangsters always looked so scary to me
I ain’t judging, don’t get me wrong
But that Gangster rap gets under my skin
With their hatin’ and doggin’ all the time
Never gonna get a fair trial

Aren’t you glad we don’t live there
Aren’t you glad there’s still a few of us left, who know where to live
Ain’t afraid to travel there once in a while.
Aren’t you glad we don’t live there

Aren’t you glad we don’t live there
Aren’t you glad there’s still a few of us left, who know where to live
Ain’t afraid to travel there once in a while.
Aren’t you glad we don’t live there
