The Lyrics

As many know, on August 14, 2003, the lights went out for much of the Northeastern and Midwestern United States. I was one of those New Yorkers caught in the bind who lost water as well as electricity. Thought I'd use humor to get through the mess, and now that I'm connected again, i'm submitting this here!
August 14, 2003
Not so long ago....

Tommy was at work at the stocks
Power lines went out, it's down with the lights, it's tough, so tough
Gina worked the diner all day,
Stuck without a fridge, she threw out the meat
with gloves, just gloves

She says let's go to Central Park and smoke some pot
And it doesn't make a difference
If we're naked or not
We've got each other, and can't see shit
My love...Just please don't get shot

When will the lights be halfway there?
Whoa, we're sleepin' in Times Square
Take your flashlight and you'll make it upstairs
Whoa, lights are not there,

Tommy has a radio clock,
Now he's holding it while he listens to Bloomberg talk so tough, so tough

Gina wants a shower today,
The water is shut off
Tommy whispers: Baby it's okay, stink away,
Let's go to Central Park and smoke some pot
It won't make a difference if we're naked or not
We've got each other, and can't see shit my love,
Just let's not get shot

When will the lights be halfway there?
Whoa, we're sleeping in Times Square,
Take your flashlight, and you'll make it upstairs,
Whoa, lights not there,
We don't even have a fridgidaire,

We're in a blackout, like it or not
You live for the light when dark's all that you've got
When will the lights be halfway there?
We're so tired of sleeping in Times Square,
Take your flashlight, and trip on upstairs,
Whoa, the light's not there

This was a good song. Good idea (and turnaround time!)
