The Lyrics

The OS came out in 1961, a year when the Yankees won the World Series. Then again, in 2009, with tokens long gone from the Subway system, maybe the original group should be renamed the Metrocards.
Dee-dee-dee-dee, da-dee-dee-dee-dee
Red Sox blown away!

Dee-dee-dee-dee, da-dee-dee-dee-dee
Red Sox blown away!

A-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away

In the City, the mighty City
the Yankees sweep tonight!
In the City, in New York City
the Yankees sweep tonight!
Hup! Hup!

A-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away

Red Sox Nation, in desperation!
The Yankees sweep tonight!
Dan Shaughnessy, he writes it's messy!
The Yankees sweep tonight!
Hup! Hup!

A-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away

(instrumental break)

Hush, you Sox fans, shut up, you Sox fans!
The Yankees sweep tonight!
Like your Big Papi, you've gotten sloppy!
The Yankees sweep tonight!
Hup! Hup!

A-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away
a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away, a-blown away

Dee-dee-dee-dee, da-dee-dee-dee-dee
Red Sox blown away!

Dee-dee-dee-dee, da-dee-dee-dee-dee
Red Sox blown away!
1918* Forever!

Don't like the Yanks and hope they get theirs, but gave you 555 for the parody. You have a right to celebrate after the big weekend. OS really matches your exuberance.

Yanks by a score of 5-5-5 to 0! ;D

The Yankees get enough privilege as it is. Let 'em eat cake. ;) Still, this bitter Rangers fan will spring for peanuts and Cracker Jacks for you!

"Beat 'em Bucs" 1960 world series - Bill Mazeroski wins game 7 for the Pittsburgh Pirates with a one run homer in the tenth inning breaking a tie game with no score. I was a grase school kid living in the greater Pittsburgh area when the Yanks were beat down by the Bucs. They need more beat downs like this one.

Now that I'm done trashing your Yankees, Michael I won't beat down your parody. This is well done. High fives for you on this. .

Great OS to do this to. Timely and wonderful! 555 games ahead...

I echo Timmy 1000's comment since I dislike the Yankees (aka the Evil Empire), but I gave the parody perfect 5s because it paces well with the OS.
