The Lyrics

They did the best they can, but alas...it just wasn't meant to be.
You know it just wasn't meant to be
It just wasn't meant to be
Didn't win and it's a sin
I'm finding it sad at end of the run
You see they' tried hard for a yard
Don't be mad just be glad
You must remember their run had been fun
It just wasn't meant to be

They went along all season long
And fought through their way
Who would have believed that they were part of a threat
But the Colts have put them away

And so you know it just wasn't meant to be
They fell short as you can see
Wrecked their path and it still stings
I'm finding it sad to watch everything
That's right it's too bad and it's bad
It's not bad but it's sad
For a moment their dreams were coming true
It'll take a while

Now some sports fans say the defense is just very tough to grind
Well, I'm finding it hard the game is over you see

You know it just wasn't meant to be
It just wasn't meant to be
Didn't win and it's a sin
I'm finding it sad at end of the run
You see they' tried hard for a yard
Don't be mad just be glad
You must remember their run had been fun
It just wasn't meant to be
One of the few times I wrote something somewhat "positive" for the Jets. Give them a round of applause as they have made it further than anyone would imagine, the Chargers will be quite upset at the Colts more than anything...

Not a fan of football and didn't vote on this but I gotta say this parody got shot down fast. Ouch.

I'm on it, Watson. More clues about the Unobomber's identity. There's a strong possibility he is either a disgruntled Jets fan from New York/ New Jersey...or Nancy Pelosi's facial makeup artist! ;D
