The FEMA Rap

Tuesday, November 13, 2007; 8:23 PM

Who says the Federal Emergency Management Agency lacks street cred? Soulja Boy it's not, but the agency has come up with a song to teach children about disaster. Here are the lyrics to the "FEMA for Kidz Rap."

Disaster . . . it can happen anywhere,

But we've got a few tips, so you can be prepared

For floods, tornadoes, or even a 'quake,

You've got to be ready -- so your heart don't break.

Disaster prep is your responsibility

And mitigation is important to our agency.

People helping people is what we do

And FEMA is there to help see you through

When disaster strikes, we are at our best

But we're ready all the time, 'cause disasters don't rest.
