The Lyrics

Three-four! Three-four! Three-four!

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah!
Ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah!

All that soul calling me
In the town it's from
It's such a sweet attitude
It's back where it belongs

All the big bubs eating cheesesteak subs go
Philly Jams! Philly Jams!
Independence Hall has the tourists all goin'
Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!
Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!

Mama's from New Jersey
The dark suburbia
But she's taking the A-train
To Philadelphia

All the Flyers and the Sixers, too, go
Philly Jams! Philly Jams!
Livin' in sin with the great Fresh Prince goin'
Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!
Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!

I got those new Iverson shoes
And that new Terrell Owens jersey, too!
I'm buying Phillies tickets and inviting you
Cause Philly Jams! Philly Jams!

All through the town, Rocky's knockin' 'em out
You've been X-ed, Jamie Kennedy!

Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!
Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!
Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!
Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!
Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!
Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams! Philly Jams!

Ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah, ah ah ah!

Three-four! Three-four! Three-four!

PENNSYLVANIA! (Pennsylvania--Pennsylvania--Pennsylvania)

Not bad, but the line with the Flyers and 76ers doesn't rhyme, and you could've mentioned the Phillies' new ballpark, opening this Monday. And the train from South Jersey to Philly is either the NJ Transit Atlantic City Line, or the PATCO (I don't know what the letters stand for). Philly's Market Street Line, New York's IND and Chicago's Howard Line have A Trains. Strangely, while Boston's Green Line has a B, a C, a D, and an E, it doesn't have an A.
