The Lyrics

This pretty much tells about the lifestyle professional athletes face every day
Well it all comes down to the economics
I should expect a call from the general manager soon
But its hard to know where i'll be playing
I know right now i'm still on the team

Well it all comes down to the yearly payments
I should not taken more than I can live up to
And its hard to believe that this is pro sports
That is all for overpaid salary.
Traded to a contender
Traded to a cellar-dweller

When the deal is done, I might not be the only one who's moving
I could be joined by a prospect or a draft pick
And it's hard to believe that one team careers
Don't happen anymore

Cause i'm traded to a contender
Or traded to a cellar-dwellar
Or traded for a championship run
Or traded in a salary dump

I hear the GM calling, I know i'm gone
I hear the media, I might be gone to New York
I hear another report, I'm off to Detroit
I hear i'm off to Boston
I'm Traded...

Well it all comes down to the economics
I should try to fit in with players i consider new
And it's hard to believe that I couldn't have a one team career
But that's just the world of sports.
Where you're traded
To another team... only to start new.
