The Lyrics

Yeah, another one where I laugh at the M-E-T-S. It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S. Try as I might, I'm having trouble coming up with one for Armando Benitez, but former Atlanta Braves legend Tom Glavine ain't doin' so hot either. Maybe he should go back to Atlanta. He'll win more ballgames, and it's not like he's gonna pitch in front of any more fans than he is at Shea International Airport.
New York grew too much for the man.
(Too much for the man, he couldn't make it.)
So he's leaving the team that paid the dough.
(He said he's going.)
He said he's going back to find (Going back to find)
what's left of his world.
The wins he left behind not so long ago.

He's leaving (leaving) on that midnight plane to Georgia.
(Leaving on the midnight plane.)
He said he's going back (going back to find)
to a more successful time. (And when he takes that ride)
Oh yes he is. (the Mets will continue their big slide.)
I'd like to be with him (I know you would.)
On that midnight plane to Georgia.
(Leavin' on the midnight plane to Georgia, whoo-oosh!)
I'd rather win on his team (Win on his team)
than lose without him on mine.
(The team, it's his, and the Mets' chances are gone.)

We kept dreamin' (dreamin')
that Tommy would still be a star.
(A superstar, but the ball, it goes far.)
But we sure found out the hard way
that dreams don't always come true.
(Uh-uh, oh no.)
The team ruined all his hopes
and he got mugged in the bullpen car.
So he's begging to go back
to the team that he once knew.
Oh yes he is, he's beggin' please.

He's leaving (leaving) on that midnight plane to Georgia.
(Leaving on the midnight plane.)
He said he's going back (going back to find)
to a more successful time. (And when he takes that ride)
Oh yes he is. (the Mets will continue their big slide.)
I'd like to be with him (I know you would.)
On that midnight plane to Georgia.
(Leavin' on the midnight plane to Georgia, whoo-oosh!)
I'd rather win on his team (Win on his team)
than lose without him on mine.
(The team, it's his, and the Mets' chances are gone.)

He's leaving (leaving) on that midnight plane to Georgia.
(Leaving on the midnight plane.) Ooh, y'all.
He said he's going back (going back to find)
to a more successful time. (And when he takes that ride)
Oh yes he is. (the Mets will continue their big slide.)
I'd like to be with him (I know you would.)
On that midnight plane to Georgia.
(Leavin' on the midnight plane to Georgia, whoo-oosh!)
I'd rather win on his team (Win on his team)
than lose without him on mine.
(The team, it's his, and the Mets' chances are gone.)

This team, that team, between them, space is long.
This team, that team, something has gone way wrong.
That team, this team, the wins won't come along.
That team, this team, was moonshine, now it's bong.
He wants to go! He wants to go! He wants to go!
On the midnight plane, to go!
He wants to go...
(repeat 'til fade)

Michael, you come up with some pretty awesome stuff

It might be a good thing that you did not write a parody about Armando Benitez of the Mets because it appears that he will soon be Armando Benitez of the Yankees.
