The Lyrics

someone probably thought of chair jordan before me but i haven't heard about it
I have dunks named after me
Now I never try to dunk
That's cause my 40 year old knees have
Become two pieces of junk

If I play for half the game
I will think I played a lot
And if I score more than like 15
That means that game I was hot

This game I used to dominate it
Scored 30 a game
When I wasn't lame

Now look at me I'm benched
I'm not very important
They'll call me ĘChair JordanĘ

Now I'm near the end
And nowadays I will spend
Most of the game benched

The Wizard's roster has been stacked
We seem a lot better than
We had been one or two years back
That's why I became the sixth man

I used to be so venerated
Now instead it's Shaq
Or maybe T-Mac

Now look at me I'm benched
I'm not very important
They'll call me ĘChair JordanĘ

Now I'm near the end
And nowadays I will spend
Most of the game benched

Keep benching me
I huff and I puff
Since I'm old and tired

Start benching me
Keep benching me so that the younger guys get some time

This game I used to dominate it
Scored 30 a game
When I wasn't lame

Now look at me I'm benched
I'm not very important
They'll call me ĘChair JordanĘ

Now I'm near the end
And nowadays I will spend
Most of the game benched


Now look at me I'm benched
I'm not very important
They'll call me ĘChair JordanĘ

Now I'm near the end
And nowadays I will spend
Most of the game benched
