The Lyrics

This parody is written as an expression of my sympathy for the 2005 New York Yankees, and hope that in 2006 they will break their five-year no World Series win streak. The song parodied here is a Japanese-language song whose pacing I have followed VERY CLOSELY in order to make these lyrics as close to the song's original pacing as possible. I don't know if it works exactly, but that's for the rest of you to decide.
'05 was pretty sad since we didn't see
The New York Yankees fight to save their dynasty.
They won the A.L. East and Boston took the Wild Card
But from then on the Yankees' life turned hard.

Well, in th'ALDS, they did tie it up
With L.A.'s Angels, who made them give it up.
And Yankee fans, like I, were crushed to see them go home.
A long offseason came with changes in the way.

When I hear the Yankees cry within their souls,
I would long help them reach their wanted goal.
And the fans, I know, find it hard to hold back tears.
Some felt five years of loss, too long. Oh-oh. Oh-oh.

But I can't keep crying with this broken heart.
It's as if my world, like theirs, was torn apart.
We're all still alive, breathing air like every day.
They didn't win this year. Next year they...will.

When Stottlemyre left, Torre stayed with them
And A-Rod told the world he was not the best.
This Yankee fan right here, she feels so saddened and blue
That till spring training comes, she don't know what to do.

Tino, if you leave, we'll share the memories
That you left with Torre and the company.
Ruben's signed away to the world of the FA
And so have several other Yanks. Oh-oh. Oh-oh.

Brian Cashman's stayin' here for two more years
During which I'm sure he'll give the Yankees cheer.
"Yankees, please don't cry," are the words he has to say.
"We didn't win this year. Next year, we...will."

George Steinbrenner's vowed to do all he can
[To] make next season good as it can be.
Pray, with the changes that are made,
Their heroism brings the Stars in Stripes a 27th ring. Yeah!

Soon the Yankees won't be crying through their souls.
They will keep on fighting till they reach their goal.
Ev'rything they do will be drafted carefully
And soon they'll save their dynasty. Oh-oh. Oh-oh.

Soon they won't be crying through their wounded hearts
'Cause their lives will ne-ver be torn apart.
We know they're the team to whom no team can compare.
Here's to the Yanks '06! Win it you...will!

BTW...Mika Nakashima is a Japanese actress and singer who also happens to be my favorite female singer (and I am not Japanese). If you want to listen to the song 'Will,' I would suggest buying the discs 'True' and 'Best,' on which that song appears, from YesAsia North America.
