The Lyrics

The thrill of victory and the agony of...well, you know. The lyrics in brackets go with the bass riff (bass guitar line); imagine a chorus of beefy football players singing the riff in deep bass tones; repeat extra lyrics as needed/desired. OS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLiuMkGCOC4 Story: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl_XLVIII http://www.cbsnews.com/news/super-bowl-2014-seattle-trounces-denver-43-8/
[“Game is in New York!”
“Game is in N.J.!”
Queen and Fleming sing!
Mars and Peppers play!

“Game is in New York!”
“Game is in N.J.”
What a Super Bowl
Night on Groundhog Day...!]

It’s the Super Bowl today.
Denver and Seattle play.
Signal missed, the football fled
Over Denver Broncos’ heads!
First 12 seconds: safety score!
Game was 2 to none—who swore?

Peyton Manning plays offense,
So he’s stuck there on the bench.
When he gets a chance to throw,
Seahawks block, or steal the show!
Now it’s halftime; check that score:
22 to zero, oh, oh, ohhh!

(long instrumental break)

[Bruno Mars is great!
Bruno Mars can play!
Cannot say the same
For the Broncs today…

What a slaughterhouse!
What a sad surprise!
Did that mascot hawk
Pluck the horses’ eyes..?

Denver makes a blip.
Fans head for the tracks.
Denver fans cannot
Get their quarter-back…

“Game is in N.J.!”
“Game is in New York!”
Trains are overstuffed.
Better if you walk…]

Oh, what fun for Seahawks fans!
Players call them “The 12th Man”.
Was the 13th Man today
How the Broncos failed to play?
(Boo-oo-oo-oo!)
43 to 8, the score!
43 to 8, no mor-or-orrrrrre!

[Broncos sulk away!
Seahawks pop a cork!
Blizzard the next day
Traps ‘em in New York…]

(instrumental end)

I'll give you a rating of 5.55 for this, Melanie. Didn't know you were such a sports fan, especially of the NY sports scene. I did a trifecta of parodies about Jeremy Lin back in February of 2012, when he suddenly burst onto the scene -- "Joy To New York", "Lin-a Garden-Da-Vida", and "Jeremy" (based on the Pearl Jam song of the same name) ......... I thought these were some of my best works. So if you are a fan of of the NY sorts scene, you'd probably enjoy them

Way to go, Lennie! This is a great song to celebrate the Donkeys' fifth, that's right, fifth Super Bowl loss, and your lyrics hit like a Seahawk linebacker.

Didn't watch the game, but heard what a slaughter it was.
Fantastic work on this! 555

Also, putting lyrics to the bass riff is a great idea for this OS. I think more people should try it!

^ agree with the Jonathan above the lyrics set to the bass riff was a clever idea as for the Super Bowl itself I couldn't have asked for a better one! you know what they say about Karma well it seems that it hit Frankenstein... I mean Manning and the Broncs pretty hard! 5's

There's a joke going on that you can't upload the video of the game into a porn site because they don't allow rape. What a rape it was but it's also a snuff film with Sherman and co. butchering Peyton alive. The funny and a sad thing is that he still trails his little brother by one SB ring. With that said, while the Broncos may have the most SB loss, their track record are still much better than that of the Bills and the Vikings as those two teams has a combined record of 0 for 8.

There's gotta be a parody in that opening whoops by Peyton. I can't write it tonight, I just did half a novel on my blog in memory of Ralph Kiner. I'll bet a few Bronco fans wish they could trade places with him this week.

Thanks for all your comments! A few days ago, someone said in an interview that the Seahawks had analyzed the Broncos' game down to Peyton Manning's calls, so the 'Hawks could anticipate and intercept. So maybe it's not so much that the Broncos played badly as that the Seahawks played brilliantly. Go know.

And now the name of a certain race horse comes to mind: Seattle Slew.

Melanie when you mentioned half time you could have added the rain that fell. If you've been to Seattle you ought to know the Seahawks were in their element. Their stars were lined up and nothing could have stopped them. I remember when the Japanese women beat the American women in the World Cup Soccer back in 2011. After the tsunami, earthquake and Fukishima nuclear plant disaster four months earlier the Japanese badly needed something, anything to lift their spirits again. The American ladies were a formidable team but no matter how well they played, same as the Broncos, fate had it that they were not going to win. The Japanese women had their stars lined up because the gods were merciful unto them.

Or because they played better that day? Face it, defense m=for the most part wins against the top offense.

Great parody. I am a Seahawks fan, so I thoroughly enjoyed the game. Too bad I couldn't be there to see it live. LOB. GO HAWKS!

samthepoet: Hey--come to think of it, I have been to Seattle, in the Summer of 2000. I'd gone to an arts conference sponsored by Mars Hill Review. I don't remember rain, but I do remember those very steep hills! I also remember sunsets at 10pm.
