The Lyrics

Authors Note: I had originally wrote this song in 1998, but I put it to the side as being "not that great", on September 9, 2001, I picked it up and re-wrote it, planning to send it to this site when ever I got the chance. Because of the events on September 11, I did not submit this parody because of how it makes fun of NYC, and the people inside of it. Its been sitting on my desk since, and I finally decided that I will submit this song even though it does make fun of NYC, and marks it as a bad place. I consider it my contribution to Bush's advisment to "return to Normalcy". So as you read this, please dont think I'm evil or something, remember when I wrote it. I figure enough time has passed since September 11, so here it is, I liked it when I wrote it, you may not like it now. Oh and DEATH TO OSAMA!
Take the last train to New York, and Ill mug you at the station
If you think that it is dirty, then just use your 'magination
Don't be slow, oh grid locks come, and grid locks go

They say crime's down in the morning, So you'll wont go outside then
hope that it'll be good weather
So you can see the sites before you must go
These grid locks do, go very slow!
But you hope that you will live to make it home

You get into a taxi, and ask for some information
He looks at you with a stare, and drives to... united nations
No...! Oh don't you know, English bozo!

you need to call up info
well then just pick up the phone
the automatic operator, will just tell you to go home
You just should go, why don't you go, go go go go!
But you don't know if you CAN ever go home

Take the last train to New York
Take the last train to New York
Take the last train to New York
Take the last train to New York
