The Lyrics

The pacing is gonna be a little off. So sue me. This is about the Port Authority Bus Terminal in midtown Manhattan (run by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey), or "Port Authority" for short, the destination for Greyhound and commuter buses. And, once upon a time, home to the homeless.
They like to get you in a confining seat position.
They like to get you in that squeezed-in confined space.
Then they crawl up the Turnpike into the Lincoln Tunnel.
Well, I think it's a total disgrace!

I fight Port Authority, Port Authority always wins!
I fight Port Authority, Port Authority always wins!
I been doin' it since I was a college kid
comin' out grinnin'.
I fight Port Authority, Port Authority always wins!

So we get to the gate and I say
"Get me out of here alive!"
They say, "You'll only come back when your workday is done!"
I say, "I gotta find me a better way of commuting.
And maybe taking the train will be much more fun!"

I fight Port Authority, Port Authority always wins!
I fight Port Authority, Port Authority always wins!
I been doin' it since I was a college kid
comin' out grinnin'.
I fight Port Authority, Port Authority always wins!

Oh, no! Oh, no!
I fight Port Authority, Port Authority always wins!
I fight Port Authority, Port Authority always wins!
I been doin' it since I was a college kid
comin' out grinnin'.
I fight Port Authority, Port Authority always wins!
(repeat 'til fade)
