lyrics by S. Colbert:

Yeah, I love New York, it’s the king of all the cities
I lived up by the guggenheim till I got myself some kiddies
Moved to Connecticut, bye George Pataki
Volvo to the dry-cleaner pickin’ up my khakis

Now my shopping mall is closer, 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 I keep it real
Hard Rock Cafe for their appetizer deal
M&Ms Store, Disney Store, I’m in heaven
I own this town from 41st to 47

Got tickets 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 EZ-Pass
To the land of cheaper gas and the upper middle class

Вредные привычки — самые верные друзья. Даже у талантливейших сатирических политобозревателей.
Дискуссия между Jon Stewart и Stephen Colbert о смертельном пристрастии к тезаурусу. (английский язык, непереводимо, да и нужно ли?)
