The Lyrics

The Yankees had lost four out of five, and looked very bad doing it. The one game in that stretch that they won, a squirrel was sitting on top of the right field foul pole at Yankee Stadium. Last night, the squirrel came back, and the Yanks beat the Seattle Mariners 12-3. Whatever works!
(instrumental break)

My baseball team, it has history.
Don't know much biology.
Joe Torre manages "by the book."
Shoulda swung at that pitch you took.

But I look up at the foul pole.
What is helping us in our goal?
What a wonderful squirrel it would be!

Don't know much about rodentia.
New York rats give us dementia.
Don't know much about the sciurus.
But there's one who means wins for us.

Yeah, I do know that this one is true.
And if this one's here we won't be blue.
What a wonderful squirrel it would be!

Now, I don't claim to be A's rooter.
It's the Yankees for me.
But maybe with squirrel in right field corner
we can have an October to see!

My baseball team, it's got history.
But it's getting too far back, you see.
So come on, Yankee fans, get off your butts
and show that squirrel that we're all nuts!

'Cause I do know that I love to win
and if he helps us win again
what a wonderful squirrel it would be!

La-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta...
(History!)
Hmmmm...
(Biology!)
Whoa-la-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta...
(By the book!)
Hmmmm...
(Pitch you took!)
Yeah!

'Cause I do know that I love to win
and if he helps us win again
what a wonderful squirrel it would be!
Yankee executive George Costanza (Jason Alexander), 1996: "We have no deal with the squirrels!" Me, 2007: "We do now!"
