Adapted from "Empire State of Mind"
By Jay-Z, Featuring Alicia Keys

Jay-Z lyrics adapted and performed by Kelly Gagnon
Alicia Keys lyrics adapted and performed by Erin Wood

Yeah, yeah I'm up on SDE, now I'm making .mxds
Printing off Dinero, My maps will last forever
I'm the new Dangermond, and once I make this map
I can make you any map, yeah, you'll all love all my maps

I used to draw on paper, all of my Crayola markers
(Crayola!)
Messing up my ruler, brought me back to Kindergarten
Fighting over colors, now I have symbology
Catch me in the color palette choosin' Lapiz Lazuli

Cruisin' through the data, the information nexus
Connection so fast cuz we're in Austin, Texas
Me, I find the data source, homepage the support site,
Now I draw the polygon and attribute the table right

Say whatup to my edit sesh, click click and then refresh,
Looking so fresh, other techs say that I'm the best
After all my training, I can recite A to Z,
Tell by my analysis that I do most definitely use

I'm using GIS, Spatial software where dreams are made, oh
(ey! ah-ha, yeah)
There's nothin' you can't do, When you use GIS
(yeah, ah-ha ah-ha ah-ha)
These tools will make you feel brand new
(new!)
Our maps will inspire you, Let's hear it for G-I-Yeah
(C'mon, You're welcome, Mercator)
G-I-Yeah, G-I-Yesss!
(I made you hot)

Catch me checking boxes in Extensions there's not one I missed
I need to use the Network, Spatial, 3D Data Analysts
You should know that GIS, isn't just for pretty show
Relating spatial data in ways that will make your head explode

Welcome to our destiny, where we inform policy
Expand the possibilities, using this technology
Demography, Hydrology, Ecology, holla back
We reveal relationships so Council knows what to enact

Geodatabases out there and they're infinite
Crashes is a pity, half of edits won't make it
Me, I gotta save, I'll download recent updates
If the patches save the day, CTM will be my fave

Came here for a job, with computers and a desk chair
Became a mapping junkie, addicted to the software
Data outputs got me feeling like a champion
GIS never sleeps, better slip me an Ambien

Talking 'bout GIS, Spatial software where dreams are made, oh
(ey!)
There's nothin' you can't do, When you use GIS
(Zombie chicken power, Check out our bright screens, baby)
These tools will make you feel brand new
Our maps will inspire you, Let's hear it for G-I-Yeah
G-I-Yeah, G-I-Yessssss!

One hand in the air for geography
New facts, sweet maps, with cartography
Not a software in the world that can compare
Put your cursors where you dare, everybody say yeah, G-I-Yeah

You know I'm talking 'bout GIS, Spatial software where dreams are made, oh
There's nothin' you can't do, When you use GIS
These tools will make you feel brand new
(new!)
Our maps will inspire you, Let's hear it for G-I-Yeah
G-I-Yeah, G-I-Yesss!
