so long island got that flood
the one that they said would come
it didn't seem to bother anyone
the coastal lights went down like sand
just as they prophesied
well no one really seemed surprised

we all headed for higher ground
and we took the whole damn town
and in a tavern high and dry
you won't believe who would come by

billy joel played his old song
at my gal's request
the one that she likes the best
then my friends we took the fifth
all at the same time
well billy didn't seem to mind

i can tell what we're made of
i can hear my whole town sing
so please don't go, there's nothing out there
your world, tonight, is here

in a tavern on a hill
that my town would come to fill
when the power came back on
we turned it off and sang a song

so long island got that flood
the one that we all had feared
worst one in eighty years
nobody shed a tear, no no
