The Lyrics

The Armando Benitez experiment didn't work for the Yankees any more than it did for the Mets. They just traded him to the Seattle Mariners for ex-Yankee reliever Jeff Nelson. So this is a sequel to "Come Here, Armando" -- using the Gerry Goffin/Carole King song because I couldn't rework "Hit the Road, Jack" with the right syllables.
Go away, Armando.
Go away, Armando.
A team just won't win October with you.
I know that your fastball's sweet.
But baseball bats it will meet.
You belong in Triple-A and you know that it's true.

Aw, go away, Armando.
Go away, Armando.
It's hurting me more each minute that here you stay.
Aw, when you are there on the mound
you hear a great booing sound.
So, go away, Armando, and make some other team pay.

Go away, please don't stay. And you need to work out.
When you are there on the mound
you hear a great booing sound.
So, go away, Armando.
Call it a day, Armando.
Aw, please, go away, Armando, and make some other team pay.
Go away.

I have a feeling that Seattle is just what he needs
