The Lyrics

When I first heard the news about the blackout in the Northeast,a song parody popped in my head.When the parody was written,most power was restored.If it's were sung as a duet,the lyrics were sung by the folks at Toronto and New York,where the blackout struck.
TORONTO:We saw your face cloud over like a little girl's and your lights has lost their shine,
You shudder something softly we don't want to hear,
New York,tell me what's on your mind,
NY:We don't care what the news says about the two of us from different towns,
There is a blackout,that it hurts inside,
Aren't you listenin' (Please listen to me,guys)
BOTH (refrain):Can't we try just a little bit harder,can't we hope just a little bit more,
Can't we try to understand that is light we're fighting for,
Can't we try just a little more teamwork,can't we set our troubles aside,
I love you so much people,that it tears us up inside,
TORONTO:I saw you on the newspaper with "Bush-Knows-Who",making such a great big fuss,
Everyone needs someone they can talk to,guys,that someone would be us,
NY:So many times we tried to tell you,you just slack away (How did we know?),
Our hopes are failing so fast now,leaves us lonely and afraid (Don't be afraid,no)
[BOTH (refrain)]
BOTH:Don't let our light fade away (Don't let our light fade away),
No matter what the news say (No matter,no matter what they say)
We need you more and more each day (Don't let our light fade away)
No matter what the news say (No matter,no matter what they would say)
TORONTO:Can't we try try just a little bit harder,
NY:Can't we hope just a little bit more,
BOTH:Can't we try just a little bit harder,can't we hope just a little bit more,
Can't we try just a little more teamwok,can't we set our troubles aside,
I love you so much people,
It tears us up inside,oh *can't we give a little bit,a little bit,just a little bit harder,can't we give,wo wo wo wo*
*(repeat and fade out)
