I got my bag of nails, I got my quarter tank
The cat is in the mail, the money's in the bank,
So if you need a hero, then you should know that I'm your man,
I'll go to the show, but just so you know
I never really heard about your band.

I'm surfing the FDR Drive

Your grandma's reminiscing about a boy she kissed,
Your grandpa has been missing and no one knows where he is.
Detective's getting tired, they said that he was fried,
They said he drank a lot of beer, pissed off the peer,
And swam to the other side.

He's surfing the FDR Drive

You better check your plumbing so everything gets through,
We told you we were coming and there's nothing you can do.
There is no need to panic and you should know one more thing:
I joke around but I ain't no clown
And KC's got the strings.

We're surfing the FDR Drive
