The Lyrics

The Royals' Mike Sweeney hits the DL again. Ever since that first back injury in 2002, he's been unable to stay healthy...
Attend the tale of Sweeney's bod.
His swing was sure and the crowd he awed.
He brought a powerful dossier
But injuries made him unable to play.
He trod a path that few have trod,
Did Sweeney's bod, the injured cleanup for K.C.

He made his mark behind the plate
But throwing errors made him migrate
The mask came off, he moved ninety feet
then pounded opponents and joined the elite, did Sweeney,
Did Sweeney's bod, the injured cleanup for K.C.

Swing your bat real hard, Sweeney,
Rip it with your wrists.
There's no need to fear the words "Disabled List".

He hit for av'rage, he laced line drives
Drilled many doubles and hit big flies
He drove in hundreds, clutch hitter he,
Yes, four times an All-Star and Team MVP
For offense he deserves a nod.
Does Sweeney's bod, the injured cleanup for K.C.

Indispensable Sweeney was
Key to victory sweet he was
One awkward swing, straining his side
Sweeney felt something he couldn't just hide
Sweeney hindered and Sweeney hurt
Sweeney's back went on full alert
Sweeney impaired, Sweeney indignant
Sweeney now cursed, his discs malignant

Sweeney! Sweeney! Sweeney! Sweeney!

Attend the tale of Sweeney's bod.
Once full of vigor but now it's flawed.
Come MRI and full x-ray
Poor Sweeney can only sporadic'ly play.
Poor Sweeney, Poor Sweeney's bod.
The injured cleanup for K.C.
