Track Name: New York's Calling
New York's calling There's a story in play Who's gonna own What the President say.
New York's calling
Man's in the Tower
He can't talk now
'Cause he's getting a shower.
New York's calling New York's calling To you.
We got producers
We got the shooters
We got the AP's
Did you get the looters?
You all crass
You all blame
You set the world on fire And the House is in flames.
New York's calling New York's calling To you.
New York's calling
And you better understand This is the story
Gonna build out your brand If you can't be our dog
Just throw up a bone,
If you can't be our whore Then don't come home.
New York's calling New York's calling For you
There's a lot of places to land You can claw up all the backs And step on all the hands. You the superstar power name You might even get
Your own table at Elaine's! So get your ass on the plane
That story we filed was so yesterday
New York's calling New York's calling For you.
Mr. President?
