The Lyrics

In memory of Hank Stram (1923-2005), who coached the Dallas Texans/Kansas City Chiefs franchise to the 1962, '66 and '69 American Football League Championships. He was the winningest coach in AFL history and, in the last game an AFL team ever played before the merger with the NFL, January 11, 1970 at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, led the Chiefs over the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV. He later coached the New Orleans Saints and became one of football's most popular broadcasters. A Hall-of-Famer as a clothes horse as well as a coach, somebody once asked him if it was true that he owned over 400 suits. "I'm lucky if I own 200."
NFL is boring, I don't mean maybe.
AFL can liven up this game.
Kansas City, here I come, now, baby.
'Cause they got a coach who'll lead his team to fame.

Hank, the lord of the sideline.
He's the chief of the Chiefs.
He's the man with the right line.
And you better believe.
Gridiron sensation.
His team's on the move.
Hank, the lord of the sideline
gets the ball on through.

A lot of suits, they say about four hundred.
Who cares, 'cause the team he coaches sure is good.
Down the field, his defense now has thundered.
And Stram says Dawson throws just like he should.

Hank, the lord of the sideline.
He's the chief of the Chiefs.
He's the man with the right line.
And you better believe.
Gridiron sensation.
His team's on the move.
Hank, the lord of the sideline
gets the ball on through.

(instrumental break)

Hank, the lord of the sideline.
He's the chief of the Chiefs.
He's the man with the right line.
And you better believe.
Gridiron sensation.
His team's on the move.
Hank, the lord of the sideline
gets the ball on through.

You have no idea how hard it was trying to come up with a workable rhyme for "Stram." Still I looked to find a reason for the Chiefs.

It did help to have Len Dawson as his quarterback, but I agree that Stram was a good coach and analyst on football broadcasts who deserves this clever tribute.
