The Lyrics

Another parody bashing L-Rod? Why not? It's one of the few things he's actually earned.
If you search for gamesmanship, it isn't hard to find.
You can have it as long as you live.
But if you look for championship, you might just as well be blind.
That's something A-Rod cannot seem to give!

Gone Yankee!
He's such a gooney-bird!
He could never win, it's true!
Gone Yankee!
That's what he now has heard!
It's mostly what I need, don't you?

I can always find someone to hit some biggie flies
if it's for himself he will achieve.
But I don't want to some pretty face to tell me pretty lies.
Winning's what he wants? I don't believe!

Gone Yankee!
He's such a gooney-bird!
He could never win, it's true!
Gone Yankee!
That's what he now has heard!
It's mostly what I need, don't you?

I can find a slugger!
I can find a friend!
He will have security
until the bitter end!
Anyone can comfort me with 54 home runs.
I know...
(I know... )
I know...
whoa-whoa-whoa...

When I'm deep inside the park, don't get too concerned.
He won't give us nothing, so he's gone.
In the Playoffs, make your mark, but to him, we couldn't turn!
He's not the guy that you'll depend upon!

Gone Yankee!
He's such a gooney-bird!
He could never win, it's true!
Gone Yankee!
That's what he now has heard!
It's mostly what I need, don't you?

Only spoiled Yankee fans wold be happy at the departure of a guy who hits 54 homers, 156 RBIs, and bats .314. Granted, Alex and his slimy agent are mercenaries, but so was Reggie Jackson.
