You get in a car and drive real fast
I know that's the way in the suburbs
But here in New York there's just one way to go
You change from local to express
Oh, take the express

It's ninety cents
And you can ride all day
All those New Jersey kids coming into clubs
They don't know what they're missing
While they're driving around
We're two miles underground
Stuck in a tunnel near 56th

So you think it's real cool to go where you want to
And polish your car to reflect the sun while you're stuck in Holland Tunnel
I'll be here where the fun is smelling the piss of the Number 1
Tell me how many people have you met in your pickup
Have you ever been mugged in your blue Chevette
You can bet your last Rabbit that you'll see stranger habits on a train filled with loony-bin vets
They take the express

I hope against hope that the trains will keep running
To get me to Chinatown before twelve o'clock
While you're looking for parking
I'll be looking at Peking
The pork in the windows
The fish crates on the block

You get in a car and drive real fast
I know that's the way in the suburbs
But here in New York there's just one way to go
You change from local to express
Oh, take the express
