The Lyrics

Baseball fans.... here's the homage to those overpaid closers you've been waiting for.
Sittin on my couch
Chillin' in the den
Frownin when I see
Fregosi phone the pen....

These are the moments I'm sad I'm a Phillies fan
Cuz here comes Mitch William's try to close it if he can
We had the win for sure
But he couldn't shut the door

Lookin at the tube
Watchin my great Braves
Wohler's comin back
Blown 19 straight saves

Why do you have to put him in there Bobby Cox?
He makes Craig Paquette look like Jimmie Foxx
Not the same as was before
Now he sure can't shut the door

They can't Cah-lose the door on anybody
They simply ignore my painful shouts
I'd sell my soul to the devil
For a guy that can get three outs
Right there on the diamond
60.6 from the plate
Closers can meet their fate
Oh send me to the ninth with just one item
Cuz it's all I'm prayin for
Please God let him shut the door

Why do have to see Byung Hyun Kim blow a save
Jorge Posada sent his sanity to the grave
Mariano seems so sure
But even he can't shut the door

They can't Cah-lose the door on anybody
They simply ignore my painful shouts
I'd sell my soul to the devil
For a guy that can get three outs
Right there on the diamond
60.6 from the plate
Closers can meet their fate
Oh send me to the ninth with just one item
Cuz it's all I'm prayin for
Please God let him shut the door
