colbert lyrics

"I love New York/ King of all the cities/ Lived up by the Guggenheim till I got some kiddies/ Moved to Connecticut, bye George Pataki

Shoppin' mall is close, my community is gated/ My shorties are all private-school educated/ Home theater system, 60-inch plasma

Clean suburban air, much better for my asthma/ Still hit the city, Times Square, keep it real/ Hard Rock Cafe for the appetizer deal/ M&M Store, Disney Store, I'm in heaven/ I own this town from 41st to 47/ Take you to 'The Lion King,' that show is fantastic/ Leave half an hour early so I can beat the traffic/ I can get home really fast, driver rocks an E-Z Pass/ Land of cheaper gas and the upper middle class"


In addition to thinking the Alicia Keys version is better than the Jay-Z version (with Keys singing the hook), I have decided on reflection Nas's version (NY State of Mind, not Empire) is also better. It's still probably one of the few recent popular songs I can deal with as being popular in spite of these flaws.
