Songtekst

Where were you when those planes crashed down in New York City?
(I wanna know, I wanna know)
Where were you when those planes crashed down in New York City?

Don’t you know that I was doing math?
(He was doing math)

I remember on that warm September day,
The teacher told us ‘bout the flames in the sky.
New York and Washington were struck by some terrorists,
And nobody really knew the reason why.

Ooh, many folks called to check their friends and family (And family),
There was chaos & confusion across the country (the country),
But when it was all over, we stood up
And we swore to rebuild, rebuild, rebuild!

Where were you when those planes crashed down in New York City?
(And Washington, too)
Where were you when those planes crashed down in New York City?

Don’t you know that I was doing math?
(He was doing math)
Ooh, studying math.
(He was doing math)

Central Park saw clouds very dark,
Innocent folks perished in the blaze.
Where’s the nation gonna go in ten years or so?
How could this have happened in our land?

Everybody said it was a pity (A pity),
But those bad guys could not shut down the city (The city),
And when it was all over, we stood up
And we swore to rebuild, rebuild, rebuild!

Where were you when those planes crashed down in New York City?
(I wanna know, yeah)
Where were you when those planes crashed down in New York City?

Don’t you know that I was doing math?
(He was doing math)
Ooh, studying math.
(He was doing math)

Do you remember what you did
On that sad and fateful day?
Eight million people in the city
Had their lives changed.
Whoa!

(Do you remember)
Where were you when those planes crashed down in New York City?
(I wanna know, yeah)
Where were you (where were you) when those planes crashed down in New York City?

Don’t you know that I was doing math?
(He was doing math)
Ooh, studying math.
(He was doing math)
I wanna know.
(He was doing math)
Stand up and rebuild!
(He was doing math)
We will not fall, no we won’t!

Where were you in this whole tragedy?
During that fateful moment?
Where were you?
On the way to work?
Where were you?
Taking the train?
Where were you?
Watching a ball game?
Or maybe, just on vacation?
I wanna know, yeah!
I was doing math, yes I was!
Or maybe at Ground Zero?

[chaos break]

Ooh, many folks checked on their friends and family,
There was chaos & confusion across the country.
Where’s the nation gonna go in ten years or so?
How could this have happened in our land?
Oh, everybody said it was a pity,
But those bad guys could not shut down the city…
