The Lyrics

Let's go watch, some football
On Monday night
During the primetime
Start the NFL

My team, the Detroit Lions
Can't reach the play-offs
Here we go,
To watch the NFL

Tell me why,
Barry Sanders left from Detroit
Tell me why,
Charles Rogers can't make a catch
Tell me why,
The players get overpayed
That's the NFL

Is this, a big joke
The coach, gone again
Yeah I know, it's too late
We suck in pre-season

Tell me why,
Herman Moore left from Detroit
Tell me why,
The defense cannot tackle
Tell me why,
I always hear you tell me
We lost another game

Just like normal we're losing today
This is how it's going to be, yeah
No matter the losing streak
I want us to win
But deep down inside of me

Mariucci, come on
We need, four wins
Five wins, six wins,
Eight wins, nine wins

Cannot give up just yet
I just want to go six and six
Just to make it even
(But ten wins is better)
And yet it's another year
It's like deja vu

Tell me why,
We can never get a decent coach
Tell me why,
Players never go to practice
Tell me why,
We never make a win at home
(Never win in Detroit),
We suck in NFL

Yes I am...
Going to have a heart attack,
My team is so whack,
Tell me why,
We can never win a game,
(Can't make it a five hundred),
We suck in NFL
We suck in NFL

Great parody, except the pacing was a bit off. I fully agree with you. The only good team we have in Detroit is the Red Wings. (Well, I guess the Pistons are good, but I don't like basketball) Anyway, now that Marty Mohrninweg is gone, the Lions might actually win four games this year. Oh, wait, that still sucks.

Yes it was ok, I am so depressed that the Detroit Lions cannot have a good year! Just once I would like to see the Lions go to the Super Bowl and win. Is that too much to ask? I will still pray for the Detroi tlions and I always will!!!
