The Lyrics

This is my parody tribute to David Robinson, a superstar on and off the basketball court, whose last playoff game this year will be his last NBA game.
And here's to you, David Robinson
We all know you scored lots on the court
20 and 10, Were your averages
Effort when you played was truly great

Unlike all those young kids today who go pro at nineteen
You finished with school then served overseas
Took the round ball, and then you played for fourteen whole years
And each game was played for San Antonio

And here's to you, David Robinson
We all know you scored lots on the court
20 and 10, Were your averages
Effort when you played was truly great

Living well and giving what you did not really need
Donated five million to found a school
Community Assist will be Robinson Award
For the star who never let fame affect him

Big boon to hoops, David Robinson
We all know you scored lots on the court
20 and 10, Were your averages
Effort when you played was truly great

Spurs are in the playoffs in part because of you
Along with Tim Duncan your first mate
Get a new ring, lose to the Kings
No matter what, in
The game of humanity, you win

To the fans of, San Antonio
Springfield will honor what he's done for you
And within weeks, he'll retire, the
Admiral will sail to other seas

Great player, and good parody.

All fours on substance, and the extra point (if you'll forgive the mixing of sports metaphors, maybe I should've said "...and 1") for saluting the Admiral. Maybe someone should rewrite Junior Walker's "Shotgun" for John Stockton.

In his final game David Robinson scores 13 points and got 17 rebounds and the Spurs win the championship

The Nets blew big leads in three games, and still managed to win one of them. Credit the Spurs for taking advantage, though, but the Nets would have won if they'd put up an effort equal to that of the Spurs.
