The Lyrics

What is America's national pastime? Baseball? Football? Or is it sanctimonious sports radio analysts second guessing coaches and players?This song is dedicated to former NY Knicks GM Scott Layden. May he never get another GM job as long as he lives.
My team lost again, turned on F-A-N
"We're on with the GM of the team.
Was the trade a bust? Is was if you ask us!
It seems you must revise your grand scheme..."

Is it true? Well it's true enough I guess
Join the chorus of the second guessed...

You're in charge of a team, now by fans you are reamed
You're the person they'd love to arrest
If your decisions suck; then you are out of luck
When Mad Dog lifts his voice and beats his chest...

Are you screwed? Well you're screwed enough I guess
Time to fill out a change of address
Is it true? Well it's true enough I guess

I guess its just as well
As far as I can tell
The fans all think its swell that you're gone..

Is it true? Well it's true enough I guess
You've got no chance to clean up this mess
Is it true? Well it's true enough I guess
Sometimes it's better to be second guessed...
