The Lyrics

After Red Sox ownership sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees in 1919, the Sox Have been plagued by "The Curse Of The Bambino". After the deciding 7th game last night, I drifted off to sleep and dreamed this little musical parody, featuring several participants in the rivalry. If anybody out there is a cartoonist versed in FLASH animation, I would love to do this ala JIB-JAB's "THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND". E-mail me at Deerange@excite.com. I can do the music and voices, but not the animation, although I just got the FLASH software
(Yankees) They say we're old, and we can't throw
We had you down, but now you know

(Red Sox) Well we came back, the pundits rave
And now Babe Ruth turns over in his grave

(Yankees) Babe?
(Red Sox) We got you Babe
(Yankees) Where were you, Babe?

(Steinbrenner) A-Rod can't hit in the clutch
I guess I've learned my millions don't buy much

(Curt Schilling) I guess that's true, he strikes out a lot
And he couldn't hit our catcher when they fought!

(A-Rod) Babe?
(Red Sox) You are through, Babe
(A-Rod) I ain't you, Babe

(Steinbrenner) I'll have Johnson (Randy) by next spring
I'll get him, we'll wear the ring (Flashes World Series ring)

(Pedro Martinez) Yes, I was bad, and you might frown
But I don't do good, when my dad's around!

(Johnny Damon) They might say my hair's too long
But I don't care, my grand slam did them wrong!

(Kevin Brown) I'll put my broken arm in ice
When Yankee fans are booing, they ain't nice

(Gabe Kapler, popping up) GABE!!
(Yankees) Where were you, Babe?
(Red Sox) We got you Babe

(Steinbrenner) I got Vasquez to be the man
(Johhny Damon) I got him for my grand slam!
(A-Rod) Now old George won't talk to me
(Steinbrenner) I'll trade you, just wait and see
(David Ortiz) Home runs far into the night
(Javier Vasquez) Neck is strained from watching flight
(Yankees) We had you, but let you go
(Red Sox) We can say I TOLD YOU SO!!!

(Yankees) We need you Babe

(Red Sox) We got you Babe

(Yankees) Where were you Babe?

(Red Sox) We ain't through Babe

(Steinbrenner) Where...were...you...BABE???????

Good job, Dee, although I don't know much about baseball. 5's

Adagio, thanks for looking...you really needed to have watched the game last night to get most of the humor...
Johnny D - October 21, 2004 - Report this comment
I watched the game last night, so that's part of the reason why I love this parody so much!
Dee Range - October 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Me too, Johnny. Most fun I've had since the three previous nights!!

all I know about the series is what I read in these parodies - so the Red Sox.....won? is that a good thing?? - 555 Dee

Good Yankee eulogy..
Dee Range - October 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Stuart, it's a great thing. Since the Sox sold Ruth to the Yankees, the Yankees have won 26 World Series Championships, and the Red Sox have not won one since 1918. So All Red Sox fans are celebrating still. You can't even imagine how much pleasure and joy Sox fans now have, sticking it to Yankee fans who chant ...19..18..19...18 over and over again. Yankee fans are eating crow and hating it, which is a GREAT thing!!! Thanks for reading this :-)

This is Brilliant with a capital B. Good luck with the animation, if you can pull it off it will be a big hit in New England. Call JibJab and see if they will do it?

You might as well have been talking about Martian badminton, for all I know about baseball..but this is still a well written parody. 555

I know nothing of sports, but I know what I like, and I like this song. It's a twisted parody fitting of your namesake. 555

I'm not much of a sports fan myself, but I could follow this parody easily enough--great pacing, clever rhymes and stage directions too. You're batting .555 here! (P.S. I'd give you extra points for NOT using "Yankee Doodle" as the original song, if I could...)
Dee Range - October 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Ingeborg. "Yankee Doodle" already is getting a lot of use/abuse these days, plus this had "Babe" in the title, so it was a natural fit
Michael Pacholek - October 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Oy... At least something good came out of that disaster in The Bronx. This is the best parody of the last 86 years. (Not really, but it's a classic.)
Dee Range - October 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Michael, you are a true gentleman, being able to dish it out and take it too, I can't wait to read you retort to the Yankees, I'm sure it will blister some butts! And thanks for the kind comments, always appreciated
