The Lyrics

As sung by President Bush as he hid in his bunker on Sept. 11, 2001
(instrumental intro)

I'm scared of New York
I'm scared, I'm terrified.
Don't put me in that position.
The World Trade Center Towers are gonna fall.

'Cause I'm scared of New York.
I'm shaking.
I'm petrified.
Don't put me in that position.
Where is Air Force One? - I'm gonna flee!

Heard the sirens ringing.
Something about "losing more men."
Hijacked airplanes devastated the peace.
So, must I go there? Don't promise.

Must I stand there,
While the City of New York meets it doom?
Something's in the air! No, it's not there!
I don't know what it was,
But I know it's just not fair!

'Cause I'm scared of New York.
I'm shakin'
I'm petrified.
Don't put me in that position.
Where is Air Force One? - I'm gonna flee!

(instrumental break)

I suffer much confusion.
Scandals from my youth they've never found.
Need to say something - but will they believe?
Rudy's there - thank heavens!
So the City of New York isn't doomed.
Something's in the air! No, it's not there!
I don't know what it was,
But I know it's just not fair

'Cause I'm scared of New York.
I'm shakin'
I'm petrified.
Don't put me in that position.
Where is Air Force One? - I'm gonna flee!

You hear me crying?
You hear me quaking?
I'm shaking.
I'm petrified.
Don't put me in that position.
Where is Air Force One? - I'm gonna flee!

(repeat last verse and fade)
