DJ INTRO: VERSE 1: Thirty years have passed Thousands of records smash Mom and Dad are glad Their kids are rockers They chose to ignore The endless four on the floor Must be the neighbors next door Ain't it a shocker PRE-CHORUS: Why do you hesitate You know you can hardly wait To move with the drums and bass Until your body aches CHORUS: You still listen to disco Don't let let anyone known You keep the radio low You still listen to disco VERSE 2: Bumble gum sing-along Are cool but you don't belong You hearing a different song So tired of faking Don't ask and please don't tell Give them a rebel yell But we know what rings your bell When no one's looking PRE-CHORUS: Bar on the edge of town Inside a dancing crowd Thought you might try it out Lets just remove the doubt CHORUS: You still listen to disco Don't let let anyone known You keep the radio low You still listen to disco BRIDGE: Your cover has been blown To smithereens, oh no Your either in or in the way 'Cause the musics here and it here to stay CHORUS/OUTRO: You still listen to disco So let let anyone known Put up the stereo You still listen to disco

VERSE 1: The ticking you hear is coming from a cluster bomb That's about to be dropped by God's firing squad Everybody keep calm, keep calm, keep calm You'll be totally fine except every facade will be entirely gone CHORUS: 'Cause heaven's architecture has been rearranged The holy rollers might feel short changed I'm sure they're gonna complain 'cause heaven's architecture has been rearranged VERSE 2: Even Saint Augustine will have to be converted again Despite his many accomplishment Get ready for the advent, advent, the advent Its a shame that you put yourself through all that torment CHORUS: 'Cause heaven's architecture has been rearranged The holy rollers might feel short changed I'm sure they're gonna complain 'cause heaven's architecture has been rearranged BRIDGE: Heaven's even better than a Friday Night CHORUS: 'Cause heaven's architecture has been rearranged The holy rollers might feel short changed I'm sure they're gonna complain 'cause heaven's architecture has been rearranged

VERSE 1: Robert Moses had a grand plan But the bridges and tunnels are so jammed Its great seeing you and holding your hand But this culture shock, I can't stand CHORUS: NJ just isn't NY, I tried NJ just isn't NY, I tried I'll take a blood test and you'll see why NJ just isn't NY, I tried VERSE 2: We started off without a hitch A simple three miles became such a bitch Said I love you, oh I let that slip Now come back with me on a one way trip CHORUS: NJ just isn't NY, I tried NJ just isn't NY, I tried I'll take a blood test and you'll see why NJ just isn't NY, I tried BRIDGE: I gave you over a dozen reasons but it doesn't (3x) Make you wanna move to my side of the Hudson CHORUS: NJ just isn't NY, I tried NJ just isn't NY, I tried I'll take a blood test and you'll see why NJ just isn't NY, I tried

VERSE 1: Christmas Is Overrated Only to those in the jaded, crowd We’ll remind them what its all about Get them to sing, sing out loud CHORUS: (2x) Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas On top of that, best wishes In the brand new year Times Square be prepared Get ready ‘cause the confetti Gonna be so heavy it will open every Single cynical heart Yeah, and that’s just the start VERSE 2: Its okay to be jolly Cultivate your melancholy At some other party ‘Cause its Christmas time Put on your best threads and shine Up your shoes, turn off your 24 hour news Silence your phones, decorate your homes Inside and out, while you shout CHORUS: Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas On top of that, best wishes In the brand new year Times Square be prepared Get ready ‘cause the confetti Gonna be so heavy it will open every Single cynical heart Yeah, and that’s just the start
