The Lyrics

Wrote this before he was traded to Baltimore for a used jockstrap and a peanut vendor to be named later; I still don't think he was worth it. GO CUBS
Cubs and Sammy, Cubs and Sammy
Go together like a Shatner grammy
Cubs want curse asundered
Sam-me just wants seven hunderd

Sammy Sosa, Sammy Sosa
Always swingin' when he's not supposed ta
Please unload him Hendry
Guess these Confines ain't so Friendly

Try, try, try to hit de homerun
He's always whiffing
Try, try, try to make us all forget
The cork we're sniffing

Sam-me Sosa, Sam-me Sosa
Saw his name on an Unwanted posta
It will take some luck fer
Them to dump him on some sucker

Try, try, try to reel the Mets in
They won the lotto
Try, try, try to ship his butt somewhere
Like Colorado

Cubs and Sosa, Cubs and Sosa
Sure wish they could trade him for a closa
Sam-me's sure to screw us
Let's just give him to St. Louis

Well, we're not going anywhere in Baltimore this year anyway, so we need his mindless antics to entertain us =)

"Go together like a Shatner grammy." LOL!
"Saw his name on an Unwanted posta". ROTFLMAO!
And I don't even know who the guy is...

Anyone who can rhyme Sosa three times without using Pete Rose-a has got talent.
Leo Jay - February 28, 2005 - Report this comment
Yep, "Shatner/Grammy" and "Unwanted Posta" are gems.

May the Cubs endure 80 more years of futility. Go Sammy and Orioles.
Tim Hall - February 28, 2005 - Report this comment
Letting Sammy go was a good decision for the Cubs with regard to clubhouse atmosphere and the reduction of stupid strikeouts!
tjc - February 28, 2005 - Report this comment
inspired! the shatner grammy line really put the vulcan pinch on me!

Thanks Jeff; enjoy him while he's still new and humble--woops too late. Thanks Alvin, 2nz, K1 (I could give you a lengthy explanation of who Sammy Sosa is but I'll just say he's a *particularly* spoiled prima donna baseball player and leave it at that). Thanks Rex, Leo, Sheik (I think you mean 97 years but it ends this year. The Orioles will maintain their stranglehold on third place and be happy about it. Thanks tjc, Teddy Bear, and Tim-- couldn't agree more; with Burnitz, we'll get lots of those "intelligent" strikeouts. If they hadn't traded him, I would have had to do a Copacabana parody--"Sosa, Sosa the cancer/ he thinks swinging harder's the answer..." Thanks again all.

I like the cork line and the previously mentioned lines, but how did you write a Sosa parody without mentioning steroids?
Claude Prez - March 01, 2005 - Report this comment
Same way you did, John--http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/irvingberlin2.shtml -- I still like your cork line better. About the steroids, though -- can't a guy magically double his production for a few years, then decline sharply as soon as they start testing without being accused of using them? Sheesh, what is this world coming to?

(Sports) Darn guy is hurt already. Better send a limo to take him to the doctor.
Charlie Decker - March 01, 2005 - Report this comment
(Sports comp) 5s. The problem with the trade is that now my Yankees have to deal with Slammin' Smmy 19 times a year. Oh, well. I've never seen him play in person, so at least I have that to look forward to...

Roomful: I like Sammy, but this was really funny. Jeff: Every year, it looks like the Orioles are going somewhere in the summer. And every year, it turns out to be Ocean City. (That's on Maryland's Eastern Shore, for the geographically unaware.) Rex: You mean without mentioning He Who Shall Not Be Named. Tim: As opposed to well-thought-out strikeouts? Charlie: Right, like the Yankees are going to be afraid of a 37-year-old free-swinger. Wait until Sammy finds out how cold Aprils and Septembers are on the Harbor.

(SPORTS) Ah, what cruel twists of fate have lain Sammy So-Low.

(SPORTS) Two words Sosa: T-E-A-M P-L-A-Y.

(Sports) Lots of good word play - lived the ending line.

(sports) I know a lot more about Sosa now than I did twenty minutes ago - nice job
Ethan Mawyer - March 04, 2005 - Report this comment
great job 555. but the worst contract in sports belongs to Allan Houston and his chronically injured knees.

I hate it when someone reads one of my parodies and uses it against me. But, yeah, good point about steroid users, Claude.

(Sports) "Go together like a Shatner grammy" ... heh heh heh, you had me from THAT line on! Very funny stuff!
Loosekanen (Mike Armstrong) - March 07, 2005 - Report this comment
(sports) this is just another reason Claude is my favorite amiright author. First he drops "shatner grammy" then he throws the word "hunderd", finds something to rhyme with Sosa (and I was shocked when it wasn't Minnie Minosa being a fellow chicago baseball fan albeit from the other side of town) and then switches to Sammy's killer comedic domican accent. This is one of the best parodies I've read in '05 and head and shoulders above the rest in this competition including my own.
