The Lyrics

OS first sung by The Cookies in 1962, but The Beatles' 1963 version is more popular. Surely you've heard that we in NYC have had two fatal crane collapses in three months' time this year! Story: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/2008/05/30/2008-05-30_deadly_crane_collapse_on_east_side.html
Cranes!
The city’s got me dodging these cranes!
And they ain’t the kind
That fly at sea.
Oh, no, these cranes of steel
Got a crush on me!
Yeah!

Cranes!
Oh, why’d they break away, all these cranes?
Why’re they shaking loose
And falling free?
Oh, no, these cranes of steel
Can flatten me!
Yeah!

I wanna tell you, New York City,
I love you fine.
I’d like to explore you,
But—look out!—I’m afraid of falling

Cranes!
The city’s got me dodging these cranes!
And they’re falling down
With gravity.
Oh, no, these cranes of steel
Are unsafe to me!
Yeah!

Took a trip to New York City,
Saw Broadway shows.
Walked to the East Side,
And sudd’nly I was running ‘way from these

Cranes!
The city’s got us dodging these cranes!
And they ain’t the kind
That fly at sea.
Oh, no, these cranes of steel
Got a crush on me!
Yeah!

Cranes!
Cranes that fall!
Cranes that fall!
Cranes that fall…!

Bad "crush on me" pun. Good parody!

I live in Southern California and I read about the disaster. It happened about the same time as the Universal studios fire.
