The Lyrics

Satire about the U.S. Homeland Defense color-coded terrorist alert system - As sung by Tom Ridge, U.S. Homeland Security Director:
(instrumental intro)

Green is the color when "all is fair,"
It's the warning... for our eyes.
It's the warning... for our eyes.
In these times... in these times, it's not a test.

Blue, that means "guarded,"
And we'll watch the sky.
It's the warning... for our eyes.
It's the warning... for our eyes.
In these times... in these times, it's not a test.

Yellow means "significant risk" occurs.
We can't dither... uh-uh.
We can't dither... uh-uh.
In these times... in these times, it's not a test.

Orange means "high risk" of a terrorist attack.
Don't start drinking... uh-uh.
Don't start drinking... uh-uh.
That's the time (that's the time)
That's the time (that's the time)
To save my boss.

Red means "severe" and the terrorists are here.
We've been taken... by surprise.
We've been taken... by surprise.
That's the time...
That's the time...
To clean the mess.
