The Lyrics

After hearing about John Rocker's possible return to baseball, I was inspired to write this little ditty.
Why do they boo when I pitch?
Why do they boo when I pitch?
The call me an ass hole and a son of a bitch
Why do they boo when I pitch?

I first was with the Braves in Atlanta
I first was with the Braves in Atlanta
Then went to Cleveland, fans needed mylanta
I wish I was back in Atlanta

My neck looks like it's made out of lead
My neck looks like it's made out of lead
It has to be huge to support my fat head
My neck looks like it's mad eout of lead

Why do they, why do they, why do they, why do they
Boo when I pitch?

You get fives just for doing Zappa. Also, it's the first parody I've seen where the real song title sounds just like a parody title. Nice work.

If John (Off His) Rocker wree here, he'd probably say, "You dumb faggot, why don't you go back to your home country?" But he's not here, I am, and I say, "Well done." As opposed to Rocker's career, which goes beyond "well done" to "burnt."

I think "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee" is actually John Rocker's anthem. What a jackass. That guy should either go pitch cricket in South Africa with those guys who got banned for match fixing, or he should become Bush's VP for re-election after Cheney drops dead when his heart falls out...

Ever since I first heard this Zappa classic..I KNEW what needed to be done.... I've always wanted to see this song skated to on the Wide World of Sports Figure Skating shows..or maybe even the Winter Olympics... As is true of so many Zappa songs...although the words maybe crass or funny...the music underneath is always special. A great parody...5-5-5
