The Lyrics

This is a tribute to the great one.
He started playing hockey in his youth
It was clean hockey, and not single tooth
We saw it on SportsCentury, fast forward in time
To the greatest hockey player, Wayne Gretszky, 99

The New York Islanders have a good hockey fix
Wayne Gretszky was the 1st to get into the mix
He won stanley cup titles and he did just fine
This was the 1st stage of our player, Wayne Gretszky, 99

When she married Janet Jones, Gretszky gave her a wink
They spend their lives together being one married link
Wayne Gretszky is the man whose job is to score more
He raised his stick, he fired it, and just scored a goal

By 1987, everything was in sight
The 10 o'clock news said Wayne Gretszky's traded tonight
He welcomed to LA and everything was just fine
Yes, this was the origin of Wayne Gretszky, 99

(guitar solo)

He raised his stick, he fired it, and just scored a goal

St. Louis & New York and then his career was through
Wayne Gretzsky's just a friend on the golf course just for you
When Messier gets knocked, Gretszky's the one you find
It's all about the Great One, Wayne Gretszky, 99
Wayne Gretszky, 99
Wayne Gretszky, 99
Wayne Gretszky, 99

Good job! Why not do a rhyme to the original song's line "I took a drink" with something like "He took the rink" ? You already have "link" and "wink". Anyway, well done. 5's

Don't Gretsky and Lemieux both wear the same number?
