Song Parodies -> "I Shall Be Deceased"

Original Song Title:

"I Shall Be Released"

Original Performer:

Bob Dylan

Parody Song Title:

"I Shall Be Deceased"

Parody Written by:

Michael Pacholek

The Lyrics

First "When the Pitch Comes In." Then "Dylan at the Bat" (a/k/a "Stuck Inside of Mudville with the Boston Blues Again"). Then "Rain Delay Players #12 & 35" (a/k/a "Everybody Must Get Booed"). Now another Dylan/baseball parody. This, of course, is about steroids. Are you listening, Barry and Jason?
They say every guy can be replaced
but every steroid is so queer.
So I remember all the days
I put the needle in my rear.

I see my blood is shining.
I'm a steroid-raging beast.
Any day now, any day now
I shall be deceased.

They say that no man needs the steroids
that you can naturally hit the ball.
But I swear I can hit the spheroids
so far, so high beyond the wall.

I see my blood is shining.
I'm a steroid-raging beast.
Any day now, any day now
I shall be deceased.

(instrumental break)

Now standing next to me in this angry crowd
is a man who swears he's not to blame.
Barry Bonds, I hear them shout so loud
that you have so disgraced this game.

I see my blood is shining.
I'm a steroid-raging beast.
Any day now, any day now
I shall be deceased.
