The Lyrics

It was 25 years ago, on February 22, 1980, that the greatest moment in sports history happened... "WE BEAT THE RUSSIANS!" Yeah, I know, for some of you, that would be September 28, 1972. Write "The Ballad of Paul Henderson" if you must. Maybe this will help you get over no hockey this winter.
Miracle On Ice, we beat the Russians
team that beat us up for too damn long.
Miracle On Ice, and now we're gushin'
belting out each patriotic song.

Gave them feeling like refluxing acid
when we beat them up in old Lake Placid.

Miracle On Ice, we beat the Russians
under leadership of Coach Herb Brooks.
They skated 'round like they had concussions.
Tell ya, it was as great as it looks.

Puck went past Vladislav Tretiak.
Tikhonov pulled him, said, "Vlad, you get back!"
The Miracle On Ice!

Not enough to wish and hope and pray it might come true.
(Run, run, we-oo.)
We woke up, and showed the Reds what we could do.
Showed we could win and
(Showed we could win and)
and then we beat Finland
(and then we beat Finland)
the Miracle On Ice!
(Bomp, ba-bomp, ba-ba-bomp, bomp.
Bomp, ba-bomp, ba-ba-bomp, bomp.)

You know, it seems the more we talk about it
hockey, makes it worse to live without it!
But let's talk about it!
The Miracle On Ice!

(Bomp, ba-bomp, ba-ba-bomp, bomp.)
(Bomp, ba-bomp, ba-ba-bomp, bomp.)
Good night, now, Russians!
Sleep tight, now, Russians!
Good night, now, Russians!
Sleep tight, now, Russians!
(repeat 'til fade)

Do I know how to pander, or what?

Okay, who's the Russkie who gave me a 4-1-2? It can't be Slava Fetisov, Igor Larionov, Alexander Mogilny, Valeri Zelepukin or Sergei Brylin. They know I'm grateful for what they did for the New Jersey Devils.

I'll bet it was the future President of Russia, Pavel Bure, my favorite player of all time. He's stingy with the ratings, he is!

You deserve 5s, if only for rhyming "Tretiak," but this also happens to be one of my all time favorite Beach Boys songs...(Don't Worry, Baby is my #1, Mike...if you REALLY want to make me happy)...and you parodied it WONDERFULLY! =)

Well-paced, great wordplay and rhymes, good OS choice for the topic--but the topic itself is a bit dated. 5-4-5.

You have the recent movie "Miracle" to thank for my knowing the subject matter as I wasn't even alive when this took place, but this is an excellent parody regardless. Like Arwen said, nice one rhyming Tretiak with something. Have you seen the movie? They put so much work into doing the immortal moment in history honor. They went coast to coast and had tryouts, looking for hockey players who could act, as opposed to actors who could play hockey. Excellent movie, excellent parody.

Nice tribute. Closest thing to hockey I've seen in months.

Bure, Charlie? Come on, marrying Marilyn Monroe didn't make Joe DiMaggio President of the United States. Having fooled around with Ann Kournikova will do Pavel Vladimirovich any favors.

5's just for "refluxing acid / in old Lake Placid ".
