The Lyrics

I can dream, can't I?
1918-2004: The Curse is Over

You're in the school of hard knocks
When you root for the Red Sox
1918 set all the locks
Can't be broken by the Red Sox

The Red Sox stink, to tell the truth
We haven't won a Series since we sold Babe Ruth
We haven't won a title, the Yanks have 26
But for all you Yanks fans out there, take a look at this...

It started in November, the move that made us chilling
Theo Epstein went out and traded Fossum for Curt Schilling
His wife made turkey the night before, talks heated, we perspired
To see if we'd steal a player from beneath the Evil Empire

The deal was done, and we had won, the player that we wanted
Quote Jerry Colangelo, "You've been punk'd Steinbrenner!" he said
That started an offseason spree for both AL East powers
Nothing crazier than Ted-for-Joe, done in the late night hours

It's bigger than Ted Williams for Joe DiMaggio,
They were going to switch teams until both the sides said no
It could've broken the curse, of all of Boston's luck
'Cause all we've got's the Celtics, and nowadays they suck

We're gonna unload Manny, that cancer for A-Rod
More home runs than anyone else, though he gets paid a lot
It seems lucky for A-Rod that he won't travel as far
Unless we're keeping Damon and we're shipping off Nomar

If everything I've heard comes true, we're gonna look like this
A lot of it could be true, though most is just a wish
The payroll would be huge, but everyone believe me
If we had this dream lineup then we'd finally get our Series...

With A-Rod at short, Nomar in center, J. Damon in left
And sign a few free agents that the team cannot forget
Rob Alomar and Keith Foulke could head up North to Beantown
And Millwood could be headed here, somebody help me out

The experts say a lot could be true but is this a dream?
With this our team would be the next Big Red Sox Machine!

If you want a baseball challenge
Red Sox are your team, my friends
The dreaming just never ends
When you're rooting for Boston

So don't say that Cleveland rocks
Don't root for any other jocks
You deserve the school of hard knocks
Gotta win and win and win and win and win and win and win...
Go Red Sox...

Ah my friend... the white sox haven't won one since 1917 and we're doing nothing, so I hate reading about your hope. Good parody nonetheless.

Of course you can dream. It's the only way you'll ever win. Face it, you've had Lefty Grove, Tex Hughson, Boo Ferris, Mel Parnell, Ellis Kinder, Jim Lonborg, Luis Tiant, Bill Lee, Mike Torrez, Dennis Eckersley, Roger Clemens (Number 22 in your Cooperstown program), Bruce Hurst, Frank Viola, Derek Lowe and Ol' Passport Petey. You've had many a good pitcher, and you're still stuck on the Wilson Administration. Now you've got Curt Schilling. You really think he's gonna make the difference? Get A-Rod? What has he ever won? Face it, you've had some great chances and blown them all. What's one more? Boston Red Sox, World Champions? Now THAT is "fantasy baseball!"

I'm beginning to wonder if reincarnation is true and MP is really Babe Ruth.
Static - December 13, 2003 - Report this comment
Johnny D… I know you’re a Sox fan… maybe I should call you Johnny Damon. And yes, MP should be Babe Ruth.

Nice prediction!

Nice parody, and yes, your prediction was correct, obviously. Hey, Mike, I bet you will be REALLY pissed off when Redsoxs start kickin' ass every year from now on... =b
