Yeah, yeah, yeah
I love New York, King of all the Cities
Lived up by the Guggenheim, ’til I got some kiddies

  • This is a MUST WATCH with Colbert’s rap!  Watch and read his rhyme.

Last night she stopped by The Colbert Report on Comedy Central and then today hit The View with Barbara and her gal gang. But we bet Whoopi feels upstaged since Colbert stepped in for Jay-Z to do a little rap with Alicia Keys on “Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down. “

  • Head below to see Alicia Keys on  The View and here’s Colbert’s lyrics.

Yeah, yeah, yeah
I love New York, King of all the Cities
Lived up by the Guggenheim, ’til I got some kiddies
Moved to Connecticut, ‘bye George Pataki
[ ... dry-cleaners, pickin’ up my khakis]
Shoppin’ mall is close, my community is gated
My shorties are all private school educated
Home theater system, 60-inch plasma
Clean suburban air, much better for my asthma
Still hit the city, Times Square, keep it real
Hard Rock Cafe for the appetizer deal
M&M Store, Disney Store, I’m in heaven
I own this town from 41st to 47th
Take you to The Lion King, that show is fantastic
Leave half an hour early so I can beat the traffic
I can get home really fast, driver rocks an E-Z Pass
Land of cheaper gas and the upper middle class

Now watch Alicia Keys on The View.
