The Lyrics

Sikh and Ye shall find
There's a man who drives a cab with turban
To everyone who rides he sounds un-urban
No holy cows for lunch, at yellow lights he guns [it]
Bhangra music can be hard to swallow

Sikhist Taxi Man, Sikhist Taxi Man
Punjabi lost the rickshaw upgraded to a cab

His yellow taxi is a rolling shrine
A rearview mirror with beads and chimes
He'll eat curry while drives
You'll be glad you're still alive
Close calls wont be deducted from the tab

Sikhist Taxi Man, Sikhist Taxi Man
He's driving for New Yorkers one happy soul from Punjab

[Lead guitar]

Sikhist Taxi Man, Sikhist Taxi Man
He's sportin' brand new checkers, and leaving behind his past

Bathin' in the Ganges river one year
And then racin' through the New York alleys in FEAR!
Oh no, you forgot to leave a tip
The odds are you will see him tomorrow

Sikhist Taxi Man, Sikhist Taxi Man
He's coming to your country complaining 'bout the gas [prices]

Great work Lionel! My favorite line came early: "...he sounds un-urban"- lol. $5.55 fare, please, suh!

Send this to Letterman. He's always riffing on NYC taxi drivers. I bet he'd love this.
