The Lyrics

This song is a parody of the San Jose Sharks (NHL) perennial early exits from the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The team has a reputation of exiting in the second round, except for this year when everyone thought for sure that this would be the year the Sharks would make it to the finals, only to go down to the Anaheim Ducks in the first round. Oh well, I am currently working on a parody of Goodnight Saigon for this years Shark's EPIC FAIL!
The season has gone so fast.
Expectations rise then pass.
Wake me up when September ends.

Like the playoffs of before,
a couple rounds and out the door.
Wake me up when September ends.

Here comes that pain again,
this time from the Stars.
Entrenched in R shame again.
This is who we are.

Highlight moments fade to black,
but we never forget what we felt.
Wake me up when September ends.

(music break)

Summer has come too fast.
Who and what will be recast?
Wake me up when September ends.

Wring out the coach again,
and enter ex-Wings McLellan.
Wake me up when September ends.

We pray for some clarity
a new system can bring.
If they play in solidarity,
the Sharks can be the real thing!

As new members settle in,
the “special teams” work must begin.
Wake me up when September ends.

(long music break)

The new season will start again.
Expectations high again.
Wake me up when September ends.

Like the seasons of before,
we want Stanley even more!
Wake me up when September ends.

Wake me up when September ends.
Wake me up when Hockey begins.

Weily_Coyote - May 18, 2009 - Report this comment true, so true. 5-5-5 I will admit that I HATE the Sharks...but only because I'm a Flames fan. Nabokov is scary good, but he has the same problem Kipper does- they're both amazing in the regular season, then they go into comas when the playoffs begin. At least your Sharks perennially lose in Round 2...we've got a habit of losing in Round 1...the Hawks this year, Sharks last year, and so on...Although we should've won the Cup in '04...but that's another story. (gee, this was lengthy)
