The Lyrics

In case I didn't mention it... Oy gevalt...
In the corner of the bar there stands a jukebox
with the best of rockin' music, old and new.
But like my baseball team, it's out of order
and like four baseball games, its fuse just blew.
I've got good Milwaukee amber on the counter
and some Subway Series thoughts to ease the pain
'til some history professor talks World War I
and here I am just grumbling again!

Please, Mister, please
don't say "1918!"
It was our Curse on the Red Sox
but it's over!
Plese, Mister, please
if you know what I mean
I don't ever want to hear that year again!

If I had a dime for every A-Rod strikeout
and each gopher ball served up since Game 3
I could swear I'd be the richest guy in Bloomfield
maybe even in the State of New Jersey!
But I guess I'd better get myself together
'cause the Sox have finally kicked our behind.
And not once I heard "I'm sorry" from a pitcher
and these Pinstriped bums weigh heavy on my mind!

Please, Mister, please
don't say "1918!"
It was our Curse on the Red Sox
but it's over!
Plese, Mister, please
if you know what I mean
I don't ever want to hear that year again!
