I love Stephen Colbert because he's not afraid to go where he needs to go to make us laugh. On Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," he took his comedic talent one step further with an original rap alongside Alicia Keys on the New York anthem "Empire State of Mind." A true talent! She wasn't bad either. I tried my best to write out his rap lyrics, so it goes a little something like this ...

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
Volvo to the 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
