As we all know
when it works, the subway is the fastest way to go
This travel can be delicate
without some "proper etiquette"
The list of do's and don'ts is long
New Yorkers know what's right, what's wrong
We all agree our trip is eased
when we're not squeezed, teased or in any other way displeased
Staying on top of it
The most reliable way around town?
Walking! East, west, up and down
Focused, fast and checking our clocks
We're counting the street and avenue blocks
Eyeing the crosswalk countdown to zero
Our coat like the cape of a superhero
Stomping away on the bustling street
Thanking our terrifically trusted feet!
