The Lyrics

The Arizona Diamondbacks? Are they still in the league? DIdn't they move to Charlotte or something?
Diamondback, you dreamed of hitting balls out.
Diamondback, once again, you're a team that they laugh about.
Well, the names have all changed since you won it all
'cept the guys who are hurt who have done it all.
And when they gonna lead ya, when they gonna lead ya
back there, where they need ya, back there, where they need ya?
Yeah, in 2001, but since then, nothin's done, Diamondback.
Diamondback, Diamondback, Diamondback.
Diamondback, Diamondback...

Diamondback, the Big Unit sure was your friend.
Diamondback, but Matt Williams may never play again.
And I know what a pitch you were Schilling out.
But your relievers seem to be filling out.
And what could ever lead ya? What could ever lead ya?
Back there, where they need ya? Back there, where they need ya?
Yeah, in 2001, but since then, nothin's done, Diamondback.
Diamondback, Diamondback, Diamondback.
Diamondback, Diamondback...

(harmonica break)

And I know what a heat you were playing in.
And you gotta get that roof closed right up again.
And what could ever lead ya? What could ever lead ya?
Back there, where they need ya? Back there, where they need ya?
Yeah, in 2001, but since then, nothin's done, Diamondback.
Diamondback, Diamondback, Diamondback.
Diamondback, Diamondback, Diamondback.
Diamondback, Diamondback, Diamondback.
Diamondback, Diamondback, Diamondback.

Wow! Finally, something OTHER than a 5-5-5 from me! Just a 4 'cause I didn't find it all that funny. But the pacing was great! You got 5 for that!.
