The Lyrics

The New York Daily News broke the story early this week, and from the way I read it, country singer Mindy McCready was denying she had had an affair with baseball pitcher Roger Clemens. Yet a later News report says she tearfully admitted the affair. Go figure. Anyway, my title's not intended to condemn her, but to match the title of the Original Song. Guess which fact from the Clemens-McCready story, and which line from the OS, inspired this parody.
MINDY McCREADY:

I got caught in the middle of a scandalous show.
My buddy, he was known for the pitches he’d throw.
Roger would do whatever he would:
Beanballed Mike Piazza…
They say he shot up steroids from Dr. Good.

Clemens’ Trampy Teen!
I read it in the New York Daily News.
They called me
Clemens’ Clandestine,
And ev’ry night, TV anchors sit around
And put my Roger down.

I was a country singer-to-be;
He, with the Red Sox (a future Yankee).
I was 15; he was 28!
Learned that he was married.
Now everyone insists I was his underage mate.

Clemens’ Trampy Teen!
I read it in the New York Daily News.
They called me
Clemens’ Clandestine,
And ev’ry night, TV anchors sit around
And put my Roger down.

I’m swearing to heaven, we would only talk
In our smooth Southern style.
Many years later, we’re the latest gossip,
And I won’t buy the News for a while, oh no,
I won’t buy the News for a while, oh no

‘Cause I’m caught in the middle of a scandalous show.
My buddy, now he’s known for the bull that he’d throw.
Roger’d say whatever he could:
Testified to Congress
He never used the steroids from Dr. Good.

Clemens’ Trampy Teen!
I read it in the stupid Daily News.
They called me
Clemens’ Clandestine,
And ev’ry night, TV anchors sit around,
And put my Roger down.

Clemens’ Trampy Teen!
I read it in the stupid Daily News.
They called me
Clemens’ Clandestine,
And ev’ry night, TV anchors sit around,
And put my Roger down.

Five years later, RIP Mindy McCready, who apparently killed herself one month after her current boyfriend David Wilson killed himself. Oh, well. http://tv.yahoo.com/news/mccreadys-death-renews-questions-dr-drew-144645550.html
