The Lyrics

The Buffalo Bills have announced that Billy Joel will play their stadium next year. I hope it's in the Summer. Because Buffalo has 2 seasons: July and Winter.
(instrumental opening)

Well, we're living here in Buffalo
and we're hoping that the Bills still won't go.
Out in Syracuse, they're still at home
on plastic turf
under a dome.

Well, our fathers lost their jobs at the mill.
Some of them are out of work still.
And our mothers had to win the bread
just so that we
could get ahead.
And we're living here in Buffalo.

The economy was handed down
the one that Reagan threw right away-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay...
ay-ay-ay...
oh-whoa...

Well, we're waiting here in Buffalo
for annual big dumping of snow.
It's the kind they call the lake effect.
Swooping on down
leaving us wrecked.

Snowplows turn it into seven-foot wall
and we can't get our cars through it at all.
We might have to use some nifty tricks
borrowing
the Sabres' sticks
and we're sitting here in Buffalo.

We dump wings from Anchor Bar on the ground.
We thought sauce might melt the snow all away-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay...
ay-ay-ay...
oh-whoa...

Every child had a pretty good shot
to get at least as far as their old man got.
That's not very far in Wintertime days.
Hope you got enough food stacked up in your pla-a-a-ace...
oh-whoa...

Well, I'm living here in Buffalo.
And it's off to work I really should go.
But my car ain't starting up today-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay...
ay-ay-ay...

(instrumental break)

ay-ay-ay...
oh-whoa...

And it's way too cold go out and play-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay
and we're living here in Buffalo.

I think I spent about 10 minutes there one afternoon on my way to Pennsylvania (I took the long route from Kansas City, back when you could still go through Canada). The only other thing I know about Buffalo are that it gets more snow in an hour than KC gets in a year.
