The Lyrics

This parody, if you listen carefully, you might recognize that it has relevance to an incident in recent news about "balloon popping"in New York City.
Once in your life you will hear that
Someone who spooks you off the ground
And the next thing you know
They're disturbing the town
Wake up and it still spooks you
Even though a cop was way across town
Wonderin' to yourself
What is that sound

If you pop a balloon in New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you pop a balloon in New York City
The best that you can get
The best that you can get
Is a fifty fine

Arthur, he does as he pleases
All of his life his baby's toys
And deep in his heart he just
He's just a boy

A New York life one day at a time
The cops show themselves and a hefty fine
We're laughing about the way
They run a town

If you pop a balloon in New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you pop a balloon in New York City
The best that you can get
The best that you can get
Is a fifty fine
