lyrics

You've seen it on the news: crippling devastation.
You can't sit silent from afar.
You're needed now. Everyone from every nation,
Because the world is what we are.
Now's your chance to help the people of South Bend
A life that's healed with every dollar that you send.
We'll rebuild better, stronger, faster and this tragedy will end.
Because we know...

At least we're not St. Louis. A blessing lines the curse.
We've had our share of bumps and bruises, yet it could be worse.
The streets go mostly unpoliced. The jail's on fire, still at least
We're not St. Louis. But give us money.

This Godzilla-looking thing, "Godzilla" we're assuming
Crushed into metal, wood, and stones
The Chocolate Cafe, but not before consuming
A whole big thing of Toblerones. (there's no more Toblerones)
The Morris and the College Football Hall of Fame
Are both destroyed and the river set aflame.
Console the families of the students swallowed whole at Notre Dame
By reminding them...

At least we're not St. Louis. A blessing lines the curse.
We've had our share of bumps and bruises, yet it could be worse.
We've been trampled by a beast. Not much left standing, but at least
We're not St. Louis. But no, it's bad here.

'Cause there are places on the Earth
Full of misery and suffering.
From Mogadishu to Detroit and Kandahar for what it's worth,
Come on and join us while we sing...

At least we're not St. Louis.
A blessing lines the curse.
We've had our share of bumps and bruises,
Yet it could be worse.
Insurance rates have all increased.
The zoo's gone empty, but at least
We're not St. Louis...

At least we're not St. Louis.
A blessing lines the curse.
We've had our share of bumps and bruises,
Yet it could be worse.
Half the city's now deceased.
Nothing grows here, but at least
We're not St. Louis...
Or Sacramento.
