The Lyrics

My favorite TV show, on ESPN, hosted by Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon, both of the Washington Post.
The world of sports, it is explodin'.
On this show here, questions loadin'.
Why isn't Pete Rose in the Hall-of-Famer votin'?
The players-owners war, there ain't no sugar-coatin'.
And even the Jordan reputation isn't always floatin'.
And you tell me, over and over and over, Korheiser, my friend.
that's what you'll ask me here on "Pardon the Interruption."

Don't you understand what I'm trying to say?
We'll discuss every game they're playing today.
If it's drugs a player's pushed, there's no running away.
There'll be nothing to save, his career's in a grave.
Take a look around the jock, they're gonna clean his clock.
And you tell me, over and over and over, Korheiser, my friend.
that's what you'll ask me here on "Pardon the Interruption."

Yeah, my blood's so mad, all this while we're Role Playin'.
I'm sittin' here, Five Good Minutes decayin'.
I can't twist the truth, that coach broke regulations.
NCAA passes bad legislation.
And not enough coaches are into integration.
The Kobe Bryant case is disintegratin'.
The whole world of sports is gettin' frustratin'.
And you tell me, over and over and over, Korheiser, my friend.
that's what you'll ask me here on "Pardon the Interruption."

Think of all the hate Sox fans have for the Yankees.
Then take a look around at all the fights in hockey.
You may leave to cover the Olympic Games.
But when you return, it's the same old shames.
The pounds the linemen gain, the trainer's disgrace.
You can trade high-priced stars, you're out of the race.
Hate your cross-state rival, but don't forget to save face.
And you tell me, over and over and over and over, Korheiser, my friend.
that's what you'll ask me here on "Pardon the Interruption."
Yeah, that's what you'll ask me here on "Pardon the Interruption."
