"It Ain't Us, Babe"

Parody Written by:

Michael Pacholek

The Lyrics

Written by Bob Dylan, of course, but the Turtles only sang two verses. June Carter & Johnny Cash also did this song in the Sixties, then did it again in 1992 at the Dylan tribute concert at Madison Square Garden. But this is not about a team that plays there, is it? Is it?
Go away from my ballpark.
You fat guy with no running speed.
We're sick of your great Curse, Babe.
A win we really need.
You say you're looking for someone
who's always weak when they seem strong
to collapse each single autumn
even knowing that it's wrong
someone to always fall right through the floor?
Well, it ain't us, Babe!
Ah, no, no, no, it ain't us, Babe!
Well, it ain't us you're looking for, Babe!

We're hanging off a ledge, Babe
a wall that's tall and green.
We're living on the edge, Babe
there since 1918.
You say you're looking for someone
who'll promise never to clasp
the World Championship Trophy
though it seems right in our grasp
someone who will cry for you and more?

Well, it ain't us, Babe!
Ah, no, no, no, it ain't us, Babe!
Well, it ain't us you're looking for, Babe!
Well, it ain't us you're looking for, Babe!
I said, ah, no, no, no, it ain't us, Babe!
I said, ah, no, no, no, it ain't us, Babe!
I said, ah, no, no, no, it ain't us, Babe!
I said, ah, no, no, no, it ain't us, Babe!
(Repeat until fade...or, in the case of the Red Sox, repeat fade!)
Yes, it is them, Babe. "We've been playing these guys for 80 years. They cannot beat us." -- Yogi Berra.
