The Lyrics

1957.
Oy vey! Oy oy oy vey!
No light here, and me wanna go home!
Oy! Me say oy, me say oy, me say oy oy oy vey!
No light here, and me wanna go home!

No more light though me work is done!
No light here, and me wanna go home!
Can't stay here 'til the morning come!
No light here, and me wanna go home!

Come Mister Ferryman, I'm going bananas!
Subway down, and me wanna go home!
Jammed on the Hudson boat, like sardining cannas!
Subway down, and me wanna go home!

It's six men, seven men, eight men, punch!
Big blackout, and me wanna go home!
It's six men, seven men, eight men, punch!
Big blackout, and me wanna go home!

Bloomberg sucks and so do his lackeys!
Big blackout, and me wanna go home!
Can't get no better from George Pataki!
Big blackout, and me wanna go home!

Come, Mister Ferryman, I'm going bananas!
Railroad down, and me wanna go home!
I'm getting angry like that old Bruce Banner!
Tunnel closed, and me wanna go home!

It's six men, seven men, eight men, punch!
Big blackout, and me wanna go home!
It's six men, seven men, eight men, punch!
Big blackout, and me wanna go home!

Oy vey! Oy oy oy vey!
No light here, and me wanna go home!
Oy! Me say oy, me say oy, me say oy oy oy vey!
No light here, and me wanna go home!

Funny, glad our little power plant separated from the grid when they saw the alarms, if Hillary was pres, this never would have happened!

Nice. And it saved the Mets fans from having to sit through another game =)

Great piece, Michael, and very funny. Apart from the title itself, my favorite part was the refrain, '..8 men punch' bit. One hilarious picture you painted, and a perfect example of "less is more". Fifteen big fat bananas for you!
