The Lyrics

The "Snow Job" in New York demonstrates so well how the elitists among us don't hold a candle to the average Joe and Jane.

On the day of the big snow
Icy chill winds that cut like a knife
No public rest to save my life
I started runnin’ then stopped froze in my tracks

Crackling echoes died
Suckling babies cried
New York 9-11
No light from your sun
Don’t be a whiner meet your fate
Overloaded, you’ll just have to wait

Well I turned around and I felt oh so cold
Well I turned around and I felt oh so bold
Well I turned around and paid them back in gold

And the city lights reflected low
And I said to the bums on Broadway
Pay your dues ’fore blizzards blow, and don’t you eat that yellow snow
Pay your dues and hunker low, and don’t you eat that yellow snow
Sometimes you just have to go. Sometimes it's really appropos. But never, ever eat that yellow snow. Frank Zappa would have been 70 this month. For the original song go here: YouTube: Don't Eat That Yellow Snow.
