The Lyrics

I'd like to think I have too much class to dedicate this to the memory of the late, great Mr. Bob Murphy, Voice of the Mets (1962-2003). So I'll dedicate it instead to Kevin Mitchell, whose trade following the 1986 World Series led to the Mets' very own "Curse."
Flew into LaGuardia from Tampa Bay.
Didn't get to pitch last night.
All year long we chased the last-place blues away.
Now I've got a brand-new plight.
I'm back with the M-E-T-S.
You don't know what kind of a mess, boy.
Back with the M-E-T-S.

Been away so long I hardly missed old Shea.
Yuck, I miss my Tampa dome.
Leaving didn't stick from this big mental case.
Ringing is the bullpen phone.
I'm back with the M-E-T-S.
You don't know what kind of a mess, boy.
Back with the M-E
Back with the M-E
Back with the M-E-T-S.

Well, the Philly bats really knock me out.
We're 15 games behind.
And Frisco bats carry lots of clout
and Georgia's Braves are always on
my mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mind!


(whining) Aw, come on!

(guitar break)

I'm back with the M-E-T-S.
You don't know what kind of a mess, boy.
Back with the M-E-T-S.

Well, the L.A. bats really knock me out.
We're 15 games behind.
And Houston bats carry lots of clout
and Georgia's Braves are always on
my mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mind!

Aw, show me all those planes a-flyin' way down south.
Norfolk's where we got our farm.
Let me hear the "Let's Go Mets" chant ringing out.
That's the calm before the storm!

I'm back with the M-E-T-S.
You don't know what kind of a mess, boy.
Back with the M-E-T-S.
Aw, lemme tell ya!

Whoo, a whoo-oo-oo...

Kevin Mitchell who was in the locker room changing during the late innings of Game 6 so he could get home to San Diego - he came to bat as a pinch hitter with nothing on underneath his uniform.

I think you started off good, but it tapered down to mediocre by the end. Plus, the Mets suck; you'd admit that yourself. That's all this song is about. It's pretty 1-dimensional, if you ask me. Plus, the Mets suck.
