The Lyrics

They say the Colorado Rockies always threaten to destroy the stats, and they blame it all on the thin air of Denver. Well, imagine if Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds had played for the Rockies. They may as well have hit 80. No, really they would.
I took the pitch and I hit it out
To the mountains of Colorado
And it sailed very further than I've ever seen
Cause the thin air carried it out

Oh, Colorado air that I love
Have you ever seen a homer like this?
Will they find just exactly where that long ball went?
Are the Rockies destroying the stats?

Well, I've been afraid of strikeouts since I made my home a mile high
And here comes a fastball, there goes a long ball, I'm hitting homers, too, well...

Well, I've been afraid of strikeouts since I made my home a mile high
You'll hear them everywhere blame it on the thin air of Colorado, too

So, take this pitch and hit it out
And if you scan the mountains for the home run
And if you see Colorado sluggers going real long
Well the thin air will carry it out
And if you see Colorado sluggers go...ing real...long
Well maybe the thin air will carry it out
Oh, maybe the thin air will carry it out

Great choice of subject to put to the melody! Yours is the first parody of 'Landslide' I've seen that has not been overly insulting to the songwriter, or to anyone else. Congrats on that.
