Leave My MetroCard alone

Why are you messing with my MetroCard?
What have I ever done to you?
Why would you ever take away my MetroCard?
I’m not rich like Paris Hilton
To keep paying and refilling a MetroCard.

So leave me alone
If you take away my Metrocard
How would I get school? Because my mom is broke as a joke.

We didn't take away your Metrocards
When you were in school.
Maybe if you stop upgrading the trains and buses
Maybe you will have more money so I
Can keep my MetroCard.
So leave me alone.
