The Lyrics

As I see them trade their All-Star shortstop
Cause he wants to go home to the Bronx
Cause winning here is just an illusion
Filled with losing and confusion

What becomes of the Texas Rangers
For success they've always hungered
I know they've got to find some kind of peace of mind
Maybe...

The winning hopes grow all around
But for us they come tumbling down
Every year heartaches grow a little stronger
We can't stand this pain much longer

We look around in search of a star
Who can change what they really are
Maybe just then, we'll finally care
They're still losing and going nowhere

What becomes of the Texas Rangers
For success they've always hungered
I know they've got to find some kind of peace of mind
Help us

They're trying but they don't succeed
For fans like us, there's a growing need
Always lost, there's no place for beginning
All that's left is an unhappy ending

Now what becomes of the Texas Rangers
For success they've always hungered
I know they've got to find some kind of peace of mind
They'll be looking everywhere, just to find some stars who care
They'll be looking every day, until they finally find their way
Nothing's gonna stop them now, they'll find a way somehow...

I wish the Rangers hadn't traded me now. They are better than the Yankees, just check the standings. And Steinbrenner sucks, BIGTIME

I'll tell you what becomes of the Rangers: Same thing as always. As Nelly says, "It's getting hot in herre..."
