The Lyrics

Hallelujah!
Hockey's back!
A deal is at last all worked out.
Hockey's back!
Going after the Cup that we dreamed about.

Well, some names, they have changed since they've been around.
But the dreams, they've remained, and they've spun around.

And who'd have thought we'd see them?
(Who'd have thought we'd see them?)
Back here, where we need them?
(Back here, where we need them?)

Yeah, it sure feels so nice
that we got 'em on the ice!
Hockey's back!

(Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!)
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)

Hockey's back!
So now, on ESPN
hockey's back
and NASCAR and the poker go home again!

And a season, we'll finally get 'er off.
We'll see Brodeur and Sundin and Fedorov.

And who'd have thought we'd see them?
(Who'd have thought we'd see them?)
Back here, where we need them?
(Back here, where we need them?)

Yeah, it sure feels so nice
that we got 'em on the ice!
Hockey's back!

(Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!)
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)

(rink organ replaces Sebastian's harmonica)

And again, we'll see Jean-Sebastien Giguere
and Eric Lindros knocked on his derriere!

And who'd have thought we'd see them?
(Who'd have thought we'd see them?)
Back here, where we need them?
(Back here, where we need them?)

Yeah, it sure feels so nice
that we got 'em on the ice!
Hockey's back!

(Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!)
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)
Yeah, it sure feels so nice
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)
that we got 'em on the ice!
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)
Yeah, it sure feels so nice
that we got 'em on the ice!
Hockey's back!

Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!
Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!
Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!
But NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman can still kiss my ice.

DKTOS and I don't think Gary Bettman will kiss you ice! But I'll drop this puck in your lap: Alice Cooper's "He's Back (the man behind the mask)"...

Well written. Flows nicely to the OS. I'm happy to hear it will be back too, Michael. Hope Lindros gets knocked on his ass a lot! 555

Excellent parody! My husband, especially will love it, as he's a fan of both hockey and "Welcome Back, Kotter". A triple 5!

I always think of you when ordering hocky gai. That's sushi talk for surf clam.

What's "hockey" ? ;-)

It's that thing they give a Beanpot for every February, Johnny. Not that your area has a pro team worth talking about... Lucky for you, "1972" isn't a very good chant, believe it Orr not.

Very nice, but you left out the "Go Stars!" at the end.

Considering how my Meadowlands Marauders raised the Cup on your team's ice in 2000, I can say, "Go Stars, and take the f---in' Cowboys with you!" Please, Texas has almost as bad a taste in sports as it does in politicians.
