The Lyrics

This owes a little bit to "Spam," a parody by Philadelphia/Jersey Shore-based comedian and Sportsradio 610 WIP show-host Big Daddy Graham. (I guess it never occurred to him that they serve Spam in the Army.) If I had to choose between war and Mets... I'd go and enlist and face bayonets!
Mets!
(Huh!)
Yeah!
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Uh-huh!

Mets!
(Huh!)
Yeah!
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Say it again, yo!

Mets!
(Huh!)
Yeah!
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Listen to me!

Aw...
Mets!
I despise!
They make baseball
fans waste their lives!
Mets means tears
to thousands of New York eyes!
In September team crashes!
October, fan cries!

Mets!
(Huh!)
Good God, yo!
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Say it again!

Mets!
(Huh!)
Whoa, whoa whoa...
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Listen to me!

Mets!
They ain't nothing but a heartbreaker!
Mets!
Each player is an error-maker!

Aw...
Mets!
Give disasters of every kind!
The thought of Mets blows my mind!
Never be the best!
A bad baseball aggregation!
No hitting! Bad pitching!
Who wants to lose?

Mets!
(Huh!)
Good God, yo!
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Say it again!

Mets!
(Huh!)
Whoa, whoa whoa...
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Listen to me!

Mets!
They ain't nothing but a heartbreaker!
Mets!
Everybody they got is an error-maker!

Aw...
Mets!
Have shattered
many a young fan's dreams!
Made them fershimmeled!
Bitter and mean!
Life is much too short and precious
to watch New York Mets play!
The Mets can't win the Pennant!
They can only throw it away!

Mets!
(Huh!)
Good God, yo!
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Say it! Say it! Say it!

Mets!
(Huh!)
Whoa, whoa whoa...
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Listen to me!

Mets!
They ain't nothing but a heartbreaker!
Mets!
Each player is an error-maker!

Please, just look at the standings!
Tell me, in just what place they're in today?
You say you just won't switch sides to the Yankees
but Lord knows that they are the better way!

Mets!
(Huh!)
Good God, yo!
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)
Say it again!

Mets!
(Huh!)
Whoa, whoa whoa...
(What are they good for?)
Absolutely...
(Nothin'!)

A fun rant. Not a Mets fan, but almost everything about my only visit to Shea to date, a couple seasons ago, was great: Bring Your Dog Day placed probably 300 mutts in the bleachers; post-game Hispanic Culture Day provided some boppin' salsa sounds; my Nats were (purely serendipitously) the visiting team; grand terrace level seats just outside 1st base and pleasant evening weather made for geat viewing; raucous but friendly Mets fans surrounding made for fun competitive rooting; and an extra-innings-necessitating last-minute Nats deep-hole comeback made for an exciting game. Alas, those stumblebum Mets eventually prevailed. :-( :-)
