The Lyrics

S is for steroids that used to be,
L’s for luck he can no longer see,
U is for umpire Steve, who is making him grieve,
M is for Mickey, with wishes that he could be he,
P’s for paltry score; if he could only gain some more.

He is starting to get real sore.

Slump is when things aren’t going too good,
slump mean few hits with that stick of wood.
Stuck, he’s no Bronx Bomber. . .just seems that he can’t loft nada:
slump means he ain’t pumped, it’s true.

S is for second and shortstop Lee,
L is for loser, and that is he,
U is for upper seats, from where jeering ain’t sweet,
M’s for miserable: that is how he feels, and beat,
P’s for a big pour of booze he’d like from liquor store.

It’s boo’s he’s hearing the crowd roar.

Slump sucks—average tanked to .082. . .
slumping back to the dugout to rue.
A hit: he can taste it! When it don’t come. . .has a shit fit.
Slump ain’t somethin’ to pursue.

Slump is worse than a dry hump with Sue,
slump’s hit him. . .no one else in the crew.
So his heart is breakin’; still a lot o’ dough he’s making.
Slump makes him grumpy and blue.

Sluggin’s somethin’ he can’t do.

JAB - Another home run in your friendly duel with Rob. This is getting better than Mantle and Maris in 1961. ;D

Thanks, OMR. Generally I don't see how Rob cranks out so many with so much knowledge. I enjoy our tune trades.

Generally, I like our trades b/c it is fun. I shoulda done SKUNK but did a 2-syllable non-rhyming title for X12. I never plan what I write, I just sit down and do them off the top of my head. If you wanna change back to single-syllable one word parodies for this series, I'm fine with that. I think you'll find my next entry weird ;-)
