"Cabbies on Crack" as written by and Joey Ramone....
Got into a cab, Broadway, Fifty Ninth
Took off like a blast
Almost lost my mind - oh, oh, oh

Cabbies on crack

It first felt like at thrill ride
Excited for a while
Got pretty scary
Swerving at a hundred miles an hour - oh, oh, oh

Cabbies on crack
I want to get out,
out of this yellow shell
I want to get out,
crack cabbies straight from hell

And I don't wanna die before I live
Cabbies on Cabbies on crack

Cabbies on crack
Want my money back
Disco blasting out,
Stomach in my mouth - oh, oh, oh

Cabbies on crack

Times Square was approaching
He braked for the light
At 90 miles an hour,
flashed by, I saw my life - oh, oh, oh

Cabbies on crack
I want to get out,
out of this yellow shell
I want to get out,
crack cabbies straight from hell

And I don't wanna die before I live
Cabbies on Cabbies on crack

And I don't wanna die before I live
Cabbies on Cabbies on crack

Cabbies on crack

    General CommentThis was written by Joey, about an experince he had in a cab on the way back from the studio. It was a Friday night, and it was New York, so there was an incredible amount of traffic. The cab driver was going reall fast, about 100 mph in all this traffic, and it didn't seem that he was going to be able to stop before he crashed into the cars in front of him. Joey saw his life flash before his eyes, and after he got home unharmed, he wrote this song.

    Poor Joey.

    Lyric CorrectionSmall correction, pretty clear when you hear Joey:

    Broadway, Fifty Nine

    Not your typical Joey upbeat song, but I can understand he felt like he was going to die on the backseat of that NYC cab, what's upbeat about that?
