The Lyrics

Oh man, Duke just lost in the Final Four again, but who am I kidding? I LOVE IT! And I have their biggest supporter to thank for inspiring me to write a parody about the Blue Devils' latest misfortune. This is for the Blue Devil lover and hater in all of us. Duke haters will laugh at this song, while I guarantee those associated with the Blue Devils will cry. However, I respect their fine school in Durham, North Carolina, and their Hall-of-fame basketball coach, too. And I respect his players as well. (And for those who still don't know how to pronounce Krzyzewski, it's "Sha-shef-ski.")
Durham...Blue Devils...Come on!

Why did they lose to UConn? Why'd they let the Huskies win?
They could never beat Emeka, even when he had three fouls (What?!)
What the hell, they're out again, why can't Coach K win tonight?
Duke can't play another game, and to them, it isn't right

We don't need this bullsh*t, we can't put up with it any longer
Players can leave if they want, they don't need Duke's pity
We'll just find new players, cause the old ones will leave
Get out of Durham, I just want to know what...

What about Grant Hill, and Bobby Hurley?
What about Big Shane, Shane Battier?
What about Christian, Christian Laettner?
What about Jason, that's Jay Williams?
What about all of those years of glory?
What about all of those games with Maryland?
What about Coach K, Mike Krzyzewski?
What about, what about...?
What about Duke? What about Duke? What about Duke? What about Duke?

Thought Luol Deng was the man, was it Grant Hill that he loved?
Said Chris Duhon felt real good, thought he could win another title (What?!)
What happened to the old days, when they ruled the ACC
They just had no weight in March, cause they're counterfeit, we see

We don't need this bullsh*t, we won't put up with it any longer
Players can leave if they want, they don't need Duke's pity
We'll just find new players, cause the old ones will leave
Get out of Durham, I just want to know what...

What about Trajan, Trajan Langdon?
What about Carlos, Carlos Boozer?
What about Elton, Elton Brand?
What about Little Will, Will Avery?
What about Big Nick, Nick Horvath?
What about Shelden, Big Shelden Williams?
What about the games against Carolina?
What about, what about...?
What about Duke? What about Duke? What about Duke? What about Duke?

Now peep this...What if I said that I'm glad they lost?
What if I said I love Carolina?
What if I said that I picked UConn?
What if I said that I wished that the Heels won?
What if I said that I think Duke is evil?
What if I said that I don't like the Devils?
Forget about winning it all for next year
Don't what about Duke to me cause I hate them
(Don't what about Duke to me, what about Duke?)

What about Grant Hill and Bobby Hurley?
What about Big Shane, Shane Battier?
What about Christian, Christian Laettner?
What about Jason, that's Jay Williams?
What about Big Nick, Nick Horvath?
What about Shelden, Big Shelden Williams?
What about the games against Carolina?
What about, what about...? What about Duke?
What about Trajan, Trajan Langdon?
What about Carlos, Carlos Boozer?
What about Elton, Elton Brand?
What about Little Will, Will Avery?
What about all of those years of glory?
What about all of those games with Maryland?
What about Coach K, Mike Krzyzewski?
What about, what about...?
What about Duke? What about Duke? What about Duke? What about Duke?

(Maryland) Uh uh, (Virginia) uh uh, (NC State) uh uh, (Georgia Tech) uh uh
(Wake Forest) Uh uh, (Florida State) uh uh, (Clemson) uh uh, (Carolina) uh uh...Go Tar Heels!!!

What about Art Heyman? What about Mike Gminski? Need another reason to hate Duke? Founded and funded by tobacco money. Need another? Their most famous graduate (from their Law School, anyway), is Richard Milhous Nixon. Now, any time a Blue Devil gets called for a foul, he has to say, "I am not a crook!" Oh, and take it from somebody Polish: If Coach K is so smart, how come he can't pronounce his own name? It's Krzyzewski, "Kurzh-i-ZEV-skee!" There's no "Sh" at the beginning of the name! Got that, Mr. Dick Vi-TAL-ee? It's linguistics, baby!
