The Lyrics

This is n o t to be meant as a generalization. I'm aware that not all arabs are terrorists, although some definitely are
leaving friday's prayers in the mosque
hear the callings for jihad
you can hear it in my accent when I talk
i'm an arab in new york

see me walking down fifth avenue
a makeshift bomb here at my side
I take it everywhere I walk
I'm a terrorist new york

i'm an alien
an illegal alien
i'm an arab in new york
I'm an alien
an illegal alien
i'm an arab in new york

fight the west is good as someone said
i'll be the hero of the day
with chemicals, explosives i will go my way
be yourself no matter what they say

i'm an alien
an illegal alien
i'm an arab in new york
I'm an alien
an illegal alien
i'm an arab in new york

explosives at variety can be really exciting
you could end up as the chosen one
down with judaity and western society
a fireball is brighter than the sun

it's only combat gear that makes a man
- don't need a license for a gun
confront your enemies and kill them when you can
a terrorist will walk but never run

fight the west is good as someone said
i'll be the hero of the day
with chemicals, explosives i will go my way
be yourself no matter what they say

i'm an alien
an illegal alien
i'm an arab in new york
I'm an alien
an illegal alien
i'm an arab in new york
