The Lyrics

For anyone who doesn't know, Brett Farve is the longest-serving quarterback in Green Bay Packers, but barely 4 months after announcing his retirement, he said he wanted to get back. However, it drove the team nuts because they alredy tried to move on, so this is my attempt on getting it through to him that he had to take his time off and live with that decision.
How 'bout a perfect send-off
Standing ovation
ooh wo, yeah

You look so dumb right now
Standing outside the clubhouse
Trying to apologize
You're so pathetic when you lie
Please, just cut it out

Don't tell me you're worried, cause you're not
Brett Farve, when we know you're worried who will take your spot

But you put on quite a show
Really had me going
And now it's time to go
You closed your curtains in spring
That was quite a show
Very entertaining
But it's over now
Go take your final bow

Grab your helmet, get gone
You'd better hurry up
Before the hound dogs come on
Talkin' bout: "Should I stay" or "Am I done"
It's been like this on a three-year run.
Please, can you move on?

And don't tell me you were drunk when you stepped down
Maybe when we all knew you were sober since your first start

Now you put on another show
Really had me going
Now Aaron steers the boat
You closed your curtains in spring
Curse your new sideshow
Very irritating
And it's over now
Go on and take a bow

Oh,and the award for the best liar goes to you
For making me believe that you could be graceful and leave
Let's hear your speech out

How 'bout that perfect send-off
Fake Super Bowl ring

But you put on quite a show
Really had me going
And now it's time to go
You closed your curtains in spring
Curse your new sideshow
Very agitating
But it's over now
Go take your final bow

And it's over now

See that's the problem with sports parodies--it's hard to appreciate them without a lengthy explanation. DKTOS (don't know the original song), but it doesn't seem like there's much going on here about Brett that only a big sports fanatic could get.

Why, thank you. Too bad that I got the comment about Brett DID come back. Had I got that song out in time (can someone teach me how to edit songs and a webcam), Brett would've either: Said nothing about retiring Somebody would force him to stay retired for a year.
