The Lyrics

My take on LeBron's recent struggles. I know I kind of failed with some of the lyrics, but I just had to make a parody. Enjoy!
Hey there LeBron James
What's in like down in Miami?
The whole NBA's laughing at you
It appears you've hit a whammy in your play,
You're gonna win a ring someday, that's what they say

Hey there LeBron James
Are you glad you left Ohio?
No one there likes you anymore
No matter how hard you try oh you will fail,
That is you'll try to no avail, you'll sink not sail

Oh, I'm liking what I see
Oh, some losing by the Heat
Oh, bad move by Pat Riley
The King, is failing finally
Failing finally

Hey there LeBron James
Looks like times are getting hard
Your teams lost three games in a row now
I guess now you can discard
The super team, it happens only in a dream
But this aint a dream

Hey there LeBron James
Are you regretting the Decision?
I guess when it comes to hindsight
We all have 20/20 vision, but not back then
Can't make a team with just three men, I guess never again

Oh, I'm liking what I see
Oh, some losing by the Heat
Oh, bad move by Pat Riley
The King, is failing finally

A title ring seems pretty far
With three guys trying to be the star
You know this team will always belong to Wade
Basketball's making fun of you,
For what you did not what you do,
The way the whole Decision ordeal was played
LeBron James I will promise you
That by the time that you are through
Nobody will remember your name
And you're to blame

Hey there LeBron James,
Don't you worry about the champ rings
Kobe's far up in that category
And he'll keep making history like he does

Like the great player he is and was,
He's better than you all because,
He ignores all the talk abuzz,
And plays like he does

Oh, I'm liking what I see
Oh, some losing by the Heat
Oh, bad move by Pat Riley
The King, is failing finally
Failing finally

In spite of some pacing stumbles, I was totally digging this...LeBron is definitely on my list these days...BUT then you went and had to praise Kobe Bryant... ; )

Nice effort...some fun lines!
