Hi, good folks
Let's view the game
I have Skip Jones, right of me
Bob Weiss, yours truly
Paul's color commentary
Play by Play

Play by Play
Play by Play
First man up
Joe Vanderlay
Came to Penn State early
Grants paid so dearly
Graduated barely
Play by Play

Play by Play
Play by Play
Here we go
It's Doggie Day
First here at 10:30
Get coupons from Sudzy's
Dog Spa in the city
Play by Play

Play by Play
Play by Play
On the board,
A double play!
Ball thrown to Joe Beardsley
Tipped off to Heck Moseley
Now score is 5 to 3
Play by Play

Play by Play
Play by Play
What's the score?
The sky looks gray
Vanderlay plays smoothly
Even with groin injury
Feel water dripping on me
Weather's changed dramatic'ly
Umpire slipped on tushy
Uniforms all muddy
Fans getting all drippy
Day is turning crappy
Call the game off, Shirley!
Play by Play

Play by Play delayed by rain, a pain!

It must be a breeze to be a writer for Godspell after reading both of your parodies, all you have to do is come up with one line or one stanza and repeat it over and over again with a chorus, and some background insturments. Was this a Tony winner? Because it sure wasn't with writing! This was a good mockery of a song that I would have never come in contact with before, nor would I want to.

Thanks for the comments, Matty Most of the other lyrics in the show are way more substantial, and mostly paraphrases of various psalms...I prefer jesus Christ Superstar, anyway.
"All For The Best" is a particularly great tune...look for the Youtube video clip from the 1972 movie---the Jesus-clown figure with the too-tall 'fro is Victor Garber of 'Alias' and 'Eli Stone', and note the very chilling-in-our-9/11-world ending shot.

I'm definitely more a fan of Agriparodies than of anything originally "Godspell." And this gets 5s just for whetting my baseball appetite. I just wish I had the time (and $) to be a season attender at both major and all 3 minor league franchises within an hour's drive. :-)

Of course, another great Godspell parody. Again I say tat I love anything written by Stephen Schwartz! Well, by my name you can see that. He is a genious, *Laughs.* Well again, a grand parody.
