Someone's dad passed out in the street 
The wind-up key woker bees 
Buzz right on by 
At night he still lies 
There 'cos nobody cares 

Insects with briefcases ignore him  
Been lying here for days  
Not my problem, man  
Look man, this is new york 

Now the rats are coming to feed  
Every night they bring more and more of their friends  
Immune to rat poison, totally unafraid  
And this is a very special treat indeed  

They crawl up my pantleg / I´m too weak to move  
No one hears my cries as they start on my toes  
Their teeth are like razors as they gnaw at my hands  
It sure beats mcdonald's so get it while it lasts

See the headline in the Post? 
No one helped that old man for a week  
They're homeless cos they wanna be  
Let's talk about sports  
Watch 'em tear that old building down  
On the way home  

But when a bulldozer pops the rubble like a pimple  
Volcanoes of rats swarm all over us like bees  
As big as a cat, not afraid to chase people  
Or nibble on the wipers and vinyl roofs of cars  

People are panicking, the cops have all fled  
A shotgun will only kill one at a time  
And it won't be the last time we run for our lives  
From those teeth sinking into our arms and legs

Mmm Mmm Good  

City fathers see a bright future ahead  
Where the poor no longer exist  
Drive the neighborhood people away from their homes  
Paint 'em over and quadruple the rent  

Isolate the undesirables in places like Harlem  
Our sowetos without walls  
If they won't go away  
Cops smash their heads  
Like they did in Tompkins Square  

Those stories give me the creeps  
I hope I didn't miss that last train  
Some smart-ass plastered life-size pictures of rats  
On the walls of the subway station  
Funny joke  

It's so quiet down here  
It's a little too quiet down here  

Who's that across the tracks  
Smoldering eyes are glaring up at me  
Inching closer and closer, almost laughing out loud  
The train finally comes, but it won't even stop  

Not here, not tonight  
I'm off in an hour, I don't wanna get involved  
With some guy in a suit fighting rats off his face  
Just leave 'em to the night, they'll be gone the next day
