The Lyrics

Randy Johnson, the Big Unit, pitched a perfect game against the Atlanta Braves on May 18, 2003. I posted this about half an hour after it was over. I don't know if that's a record for reacting to an event, or even if Chucky keeps such records.
(Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo...)

There's a town, Atlanta G-A
and it serves thousands of fans each day.
Those spectators pass the time away
and do their old war chant.
And there's a guy with the Diamondbacks
and at him, the Braves all took their hacks
but that Randy, he laid down the smack.
The Braves walk back and whine.

The Braves all say
"Randy pitched a fine game
what a great game, yessiree.
But our guys could not hit balls they couldn't see."
(Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo...)

Randy wears a shaggy mane
and he looks as if more than a bit insane.
He's going to the Hall of Fame
for the way that Randy pitched.
He's thrown over four thousand Ks
sixty feet six inches away
but he made it clear you just can't play
the strike zone is his home.

The players say
"Randy pitched a fine game
what a great game, yessiree.
But my life is always in danger, can't you see?"
(Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo...)

Yeah, Randy, you should watch his eyes
when he fires that leather pellet.
You can see his great fastball rise
and watch his flapping mullet.
And he has always been the best.
Lord, he he stands 'bout six-foot-ten.
And Randy throws a pitch under your chin.
(Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo...)

At night, with the park closed down
Randy talks to the press of town
and loves to yank their chains around.
He still can hear them say

he hears them say
"Randy pitched a fine game
what a great game, yessiree.
But my life is always in danger, can't you see?"
(Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo...)

"Randy pitched a fine game
what a great game, yessiree.
But my life is always in danger, can't you see?"
(Doo-doo-doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo-doo-doo...)
(repeat 'til fade)

Michael, what took you so long? I don't know if your posting time is a record or not; but, either way, it's a record I'll never break. Good parody. Did you notice that the Braves scored as many runs as the Yankees last night?

Michael, a "perfect" parody! (I was going to say that you've hit a grand slam, but...wrong metaphor...)

I don't know the original, but I gotta vote 5-5-5 on this because I was excited to hear about the game, especially since the Braves were the ones who lost. By the way, he pitched it on May 18, 2004, not 03. (The year is wrong in your introductory note.)

Shaggy mane--bit insane. That's funny. (I stopped being interested in baseball when parking fees at Shea became so high I had to write them off on my income tax return as real estate investment losses.. And $7.00 hot dogs? Disillusioning.)

I just realized I typed "2003" in the opening. Force of habit? That's one Force I shouldn't use.
