The Lyrics

In the gridiron, the mighty gridiron,
The Lions lost tonight.
In the endzone, the quiet endzone
The Lions lost tonight.

Theyreallysuck, theyreallysuck, theyreallysuck, theyreallysuck.
Theyreallysuck, theyreallysuck, theyreallysuck, theyreallysuck.

Watch the highlights, those crazy highlights.
The Lions lost tonight.
Boo the missed calls, the blatant facemasks
The Lions lost tonight.


Hush my darling, don't boo the hometeam.
The Lions lost tonight.
Hush my darling, they know already.
The Lions lost tonight.


Watch the season, go down the toilet.
The Lions lost tonight.
Why the heck do, I keep on watching?
The Lions lost tonight.

NB: Although this parody is a response to the current problems of the Detroit Lions, it works equally well for other teams whose names (ex: Bengals, Seahawks) or nicknames (ex: Patsies, Niners) fit.

Change to "The Chiefs just lost tonight" and Kansas City's beloved team fits too, unfortunately. See my entry "Do You Hear the K.C. Chiefs? (A Miserable Season)"

Just lion around, great parody. Until they won this past week, I was thinking about using the Eagles (the team) in your song. Way to go. 555
