The Lyrics

JMJI'm back (finally)
Oh, I can't hide on the mound
Throw the rosin on the ground
I'm not brought in for mop-up for a change
Bases full, got my sign
And the game is on the line
Facing a batter that is half my age

Clinging to a lead
But oh, now have I peed?
I'm an aging reliever
In the home half seventeenth

I deny that I saw
Connie Mack and John McGraw
But I was a good starter in the eighties
But now I'm out of time
Reaching the end of the line
On the brink of athletic obscurity

Clinging to the dream
About to part the scene
I'm an aging reliever
Awful close to retiring

ERA's 18
Pitching at 43
I'm an aging reliever
Fastball goes at 70

On a last place team
You kniow what does that mean
I'm an aging reliever
In a watered down league

Where have you gone, Johnny Franco? The Met fans turn their bloodshot eyes to you? Woo-woo-woo! What's that you say, Bobby Valentine? Old man John has gone down Houston way! Hey-hey-hey! Hey-hey-hey!

Good idea, very promising, but the extra syllables throw off the pacing and really detract.

Nice job; I laughed at the "now did I pee" part. Nice that you didnt' show what happened, we can make up our own ideas.
