The Lyrics

And now, to the tune of the song written by Neil Diamond, comes a tune about my favorite baseball player! Like hell! This song was covered by Smash Mouth, which is what I'd like to do to Weaver. Smash Mouth is best known for a song whose title Weaver will never be: "All-Star!" I can't wait until the L.A. Bums come to Shea, so I can boo the hell out of Weaver! Hey, the Mets aren't always worthy of my contempt!
I thought Yankee Pinstripes were for fairy tales
meant for someone else but not for me.
Fans are out to get me. (Di-di-dip-di-dip!)
That's the way it seemed. (Di-di-dip-di-dip!)
Disappointment coming, I got creamed.

And I can't save face! 'Cause I'm-a Jeff Weaver!
Not a trace of hope can I find!
I'm a bum! (ooooh-wahhhh) I'm-a Jeff Weaver!
Starter, reliever, both I've tried!

I thought Yankees winning was a given thing.
It seems the more I pitched, the more I'm rocked.
What's the use in trying? (Di-di-dip-di-dip!)
All I give is pain. (Di-di-dip-di-dip!)
When I'm starting, fans, they pray for rain.

And I can't save face! 'Cause I'm-a Jeff Weaver!
Not a trace of hope can I find!
I'm a bum! (ooooh-wahhhh) I'm-a Jeff Weaver!
Starter, reliever, both I've tried!

(instrumental break)

Awwww, fans are out to get me. (Di-di-dip-di-dip!)
That's the way it seemed. (Di-di-dip-di-dip!)
Disappointment coming, I got creamed.

And I can't save face! 'Cause I'm-a Jeff Weaver!
Not a trace of hope can I find!
I'm a bum! (ooooh-wahhhh) I'm-a Jeff Weaver!
Starter, reliever, both I've tried!

Yeah, I can't save face! 'Cause I'm-a Jeff Weaver!
Not a trace of hope can I find!
Yeah, I'm-a Jeff Weaver
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah!
(I'm-a Jeff Weaver!)
Say I'm-a Jeff Weaver! (I'm-a Jeff Weaver!)

Apparently there's a bunch of Jeff Weaver fans floating around out there. I thought this was great. BTW, the Yankees instantly became better by getting rid of Weaver, but neutralized themselves by losing Pettite and Clemons.

Hey, don't you mean Pettitte and Clemens? (You missed another T in the first name, and in the other, put an O where the E should go.)
