The Lyrics

Dedicated to all the Flushing Heathen -- my nickname for Met fans. That means you too, Bernard!
What's the score, mate?

(7-6!)

OK, no reason to shout at me.
Just because the Mets come up short, you know!

(instrumental opening)

Oh, you can't hide there at Shea
when you gave the game away.
The one o'clock alarm means you must play.

Yes, one comes, fate is sealed.
Blue and orange take the field.
The Shea wind's razor-cold, blown today.

Cheer up, sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean?
'Cause you
daydream of Seaver
and an
October scene!

You once saw the Ks.
Cone and Gooden, were amazed.
Now you know, more rings from Yankee plays.

Whoa, and the injuries are piled.
Haven't won one for a while.
And Pedro seems to have reached his last days.

Cheer up, sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean?
'Cause you
daydream of Seaver
and an
October scene!

Cheer up, sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean?
'Cause you
daydream of Seaver
and an
October scene!

(instrumental break)

Cheer up, sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean?
'Cause you
daydream of Seaver
and an
October scene!

Cheer up, sleepy Jean.
Oh, what can it mean?
'Cause you
daydream of Seaver
and an
October scene!

(repeat until fade, as the Mets always do)
It's true: As a Met, Dwight Gooden won one World Series; as a Yankee, two; as a Met, David Cone didn't win any; as a Yankee, four, plus one as a Toronto Blue Jay.

amazingly, no met pitcher has pitched a no-hitter...

Well, since you didn't bash the Red Sox, I give you 5-5-5. Having said that, the line concerning the fade-out was clever, Mike.

Good one... another possibility is "Daydream of Reefer"...

Good title. The Mets are trying to live up to your "fade" prophecy, but they should at least make the playoffs and maybe even advance to the 2nd round.
