The Lyrics

It's 11 o'clock on a Sunday, the tailgating crowd shuffles in
There's an Eagles fan sitting next to me who is wishing his team would win
He says "Son, can McNabb make new memories?"
As I sit in my Buick Regal
I turn the radio to a sports station, so no one will miss the Eagles
La, da-da, da-de-da, la-da, la-de-da, da-dum

Let's win the game, we're the Eagles, let's win the game today
We're all hungering for a championship, When we get it, we'll all be OK

Now Donovan McNabb is a friend of mine, he gets my friends tickets for free
And he's quick on his feet and makes the D miss, and there's no place I'd rather be
He says "Man, the suspense is killing me," and I can see it right on his face
"I really want to win the Super Bowl, so they all can be proud in this place"
La, da-da, da-de-da, la-da, la-de-da, da-dum

Now Andy Reid is a great coach, who could never win the NFC
So they stole Terrell Owens from the Niners, and they also got Duce Staley
And the linebackers practice their tackling, and the big linemen push on the sled
Cause they want to get into the Super Bowl, though they wish they got to Houston instead

Let's win the game, we're the Eagles, let's win the game today
We're all hungering for a championship, When we get it, we'll all be OK

It's another big crowd in Philadelphia, and the players give us a smile
Cause they know they can do it, but it would be cool if they could win it all this time
And the rock 'n' roll music is a carnival, and we're eating ribs and drinking beer
As they go crazy and cheer the team to victory saying "Fox, what are you doing here?"
La, da-da, da-de-da, la-da, la-de-da, da-dum

Let's win the game, we're the Eagles, let's win the game today
We're all hungering for a championship, When we get it, we'll all be OK

This song is a lot like the Eagles: I had high hopes for it, but it fell short, and I end up with a craving for a "Philadelphia Cheesesteak." Will I ever stop with the shameless plugs for my own parodies? Sure, as soon as the Eagles win the game with the Roman numerals.

Well, we're going to be waiting a while. We can write as many parodies as John Barry has done with Screamin' Jay Hawkins. I wonder if Hawkins put a spell on them.
