The Lyrics

No, it's not about the movie of the same title, the greatest hockey movie ever made. But maybe the guy in this song should be sent down to the minors.
(instrumental opening)

Well, you went uptown, riding in your limousine.
Changed into red-white-and blue clothes.
You had the Easton stick in your hand and the skates on your toes.
Ooh, but you wake up in the morning with your head on fire
and a bad write-up in the Post.
Go on and cry in your coffee
but you suck much worse than most.

Because you had to take a slap shot, didn't ya?
Couldn't win game in shootout?
You had to take a slap shot, didn't ya?
And your teeth were soon knocked out.
You had to take the last shot last night.
You just didn't have no clout.
You blew it in the white-hot spotlight.
You had to take a slap shot last night, whoa-ho!

Oy!

Well, they were all impressed with your lady guest
and your table you reserved at Elaine's.
And your Mad Dog Russo impression left us so entertained.
Aw, but now the Dog, on the 'FAN, all the things he said
about you, man, you don't wanna know.
I'll give you one hint, buddy:
He said the game you really did blow!

Because you had to take a slap shot, didn't ya?
Took on Brodeur and you missed.
You had to take a slap shot, didn't ya?
Zach Parise beat Lundqvist.
You had to take the last shot last night.
Now the Ranger fans will pout.
You had to make the back page, not right.
You had to take a slap shot last night, whoa-ho!

Whoa, oh, a-whoa-oh, whoa...
Whoa, oh, a-whoa-oh...

It makes more sense to take a wrist shot in
if you want your team to stand alone.
But you and all the Rangers suck!
Let the Devils beat you at home!

No-no-no-no, you had to take a slap shot, didn't ya?
Couldn't win game in shootout?
You had to take a slap shot, didn't ya?
And your teeth were soon knocked out.
You had to take the last shot last night.
You just didn't have no clout.
You blew it in the white-hot spotlight.
You had to take a slap shot last night, whoa-ho!

Whoa, oh, a-whoa-oh, whoa...
Whoa, oh, a-whoa-oh...

Ah, slap shot!

Mm, slap shot!

Mm, slap shot!

Mm, slap shot!

(repeat 'til fade, as the Rangers always do)
