The Lyrics

Ah, so many players on strike asking for more money, so little time.
I'm ready for the season
With my popcorn ready to go
But when I turned on the news, this came on TV
This season doesn't mean that much to me

Hockey lockout days, gosh darn it
No more season games, don't you know
Players begging please give more money
No more Stanley Cup, don't you know

Heard it made a strong bond with the CBA
teamed up with headline pride
And when it read about a lockout with a bargain agreement
the minor leagues were on our side

(repeat chorus)

The newspaper came on my doorstep the next morning day
Front of the sports page came my way
NHL camps are closed because of this stand
Because they've lost more money in ways they can

(repeat chorus)

If I were a player standing outside the office
sitting on the concrete floor
I'll be ashamed if I don't need more money
Just one picket sign will kick that commie out the door

(repeat chorus)
