The Lyrics

Da da da da da, da da da da da da da da, da da da da

Hudson and Zito throw fastballs for strikeouts
Chavez and Scotty, triple-play, they turn it

Oh, turning green with envy, the way they do my life
Turning green with envy, the way they do my life
Oakland living, Oakland, oh yeah baby
High living, Oakland-style

October, one chance to get in the big dance
Attendance goes sky-high, leave the Raiders to die
I'm turning green with envy, the way they do my life
Yeah, I'm turning green with envy, the way they do my life
Oh, baby

Singles, doubles, triples, home runs
Bases are loaded, and now I've got to hit a grand slam
I'm turning green with envy, swinging with my hands
Yeah, I'm turning green with envy, swinging with my hands
Oh (Ow!)

Runs are increasing, pitchers back up the defense
The fever is spreading, across the Bay it's heading
Oh, I'm turning green with envy, just to let you know...

Da da da da da, da da, da da da da
Da da da da da, da da, da da da da...
