Stephen Colbert duets with Alicia Keys – video & lyrics

Alicia Keys performed her hit song “Empire State Of Mind” on “The Colbert Report” last night with a little help from the man himself.

Stephen took the mic with a hoodie on and rapped what was supposed to be Jay-Z’s part, but changed it up. He’s so freakin’ funny, you gotta love him.

Lyrics:

Yeah, I love New York, it’s the king of all the cities
I lived up by the guggenheim till I got myself some kiddies

Moved to Connecticut, bye George Pataki
Volvo to the dry-cleaner pickin’ up my khakis

Now my shopping mall is closer, 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 I keep it real
Hard Rock Cafe for their appetizer deal

M&Ms Store, Disney Store, I’m in heaven
I own this town from 41st to 47

Got tickets 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 EZ-Pass
To the land of cheaper gas and the upper middle class
