The Lyrics

The Union Station metro stop in DC was shut down yesterday during rush hour due to a fire


She came out from business class
She headed for the red line
She hoped to finish her errands
As long as she had time
The news came on the intercom
All the commuters frowned
A fire at Union Station
It had to be shut down
Smoke at the metro, a fire on the rail
Smoke at the metro...

They said that it was a trash fire
It was beneath the third rail
The news distracted her train of thought
Commute was going to hell
Can't get home by metro
She had to find another way
A cab ride would be costly
So she placed her faith in MTA
Smoke at the metro, so Sarah took a bus ride
Smoke at the metro...

Did not have time to get groceries
Her food was stretched to the brink
But still she made herself lunch and dinner
Not cereal over the sink
Too late for the market and photo shots
She gets ready for bed
Tells friends her story on email
And wonders what response she will get
Smoke at the metro, so Sarah took a bus ride
Smoke at the metro...

Don't know what it is about this OS, but I've always liked it "So she placed her faith in MTA Smoke at the metro, so Sarah took a bus ride" . . .just interesting and original all around...speaking of interesting and original all around, have you posted the 9th broadcast yet? Have You? Have You? You've got me ADDICTED to that.

It's been too long since Jeff has become a daily name, but what's this three parodies within the course of a week. It makes me happy that you've returned.

This was awesome! Although, I wouldve loved a sub for "And fire in the sky", but that goes with this pretty well too,so 5s

Thanks Dave, Matthias and Jack. Jack, I subbed "rail" for "sky" in the line you mentioned (the fire was on the third "electric" rail)

I went into this expecting it to be about California...but you know...I've come to learn that I rarely get what I expect. ; ) Nice work, though!

Great story telling...and interest holding

Considering the London Underground shuts down for days if a passenger farts too loudly; you get no sympathy from me. You do, however, get a flaming fistful o' fives.

Yowza! This parody has just hit Fahrenheit 555! You get a Dylan Baranski Award for "Best Parody of the Day"!
