The Lyrics

Damn, when is this hockey lockout gonna end? I want my Devils back!
It's a little bit funny, this feeling, defeat.
I'm not one of those used to humble pie to eat.
We... spent so much money, and I'm sorry we did
on dumb Kevin Brown and that A-Rod chump kid.

If I was a slugger, you're thinking, "Yeah, right!"
There's a man who takes potions, but Bonds don't play tonight.
I... know it's not much, but it's the best I can do.
You beat us fair and square. Good luck to you.

And you can tell everybody this is your year.
It may be quite simple and it may sound queer.
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
a New Yorker's words:
Go beat those dumb Cardinals, be champs of the world!

I sat in my seats, I could hear the Boss.
Well, a few of these ripoffs, well, they've gotten us quite cross.
But to win the whole thing, you've waited so long.
You're way too close now for me to wish you wrong.

So excuse me for surprising, but it is the truth
from a fan of the team of Mickey Mantle and Babe Ruth.
Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean:
Go win the World Series in your park so green.

And you can tell everybody this is your year.
It may be quite simple and it may sound queer.
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
a New Yorker's words:
Go beat those dumb Cardinals, be champs of the world!

I hope you don't mind! I hope you don't mind!
A Yankee Fan's words:
Go win the World Series, be champs of the world!
