The Lyrics

I swear, I'm not bitter!
How can this be now in 2004?
The Red Sox win, they never did before.
They knocked us down very late at night.
The Yanks have lost, and I'm not feeling right.
All the money, get A-Rod to come?
But he's such a lousy choking bum.
Best off if he'd stayed outside.
He cannot run, and he cannot hide.

How can this be now?
How can this be now?
How can this be now?
How can this be now?

How can this be now in 2004?
The Sox of past, always did hit the floor.
Remember 1978?
That Bucky bloop made everyone feel great.
Even the Mets, back in '86
put Boston's team in such an awful fix.
These Yanks don't hit like in my childhood and
no Aaron Boone hits do they command.

How can this be now?
How can this be now?
How can this be now?
How can this be now?

Schilling's the man who take Curse away.
We could not follow him.
That's not the future I want to see.
It's really looking grim.

(instrumental break)

How? How? How?

How can this be now?
How can this be now?
How can this be now?
How can this be now?

Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh!
How can this be now?
Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh!

How can this
How can this
Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh!
How can this be now?
Ahhhh! Ahhhh! Ahhhh!
No! No! No!

I swear, I'm not bitter! I swear, so help me... aw, who am I kidding?

It came out in the 80s, dude. Men @ Work did not have any seventies stuff.

Oh, by the way, great parody.

Aoid, who gives a shit when it came out? Don't you have anything better to do with your time than nit-pick song publication years? Get a clue and a job like mine, which is scanning comments, looking for people wasting valuable bite space like yourself...=) BTW, 555 for a good parody here dude

For your information, Whopner, Aoid has done things other than act as the "Decade Police" when the real entity of that name doesn't show up. He criticizes parodies that deal with grossness, like toilet-themed parodies and the like. So just back off.
I also vote 555 on it.

I didn't even know there was a "Who Can It Be Now?" contest. I guess this counts as an entry anyway.

Sorry, sugar...the entries had to be anonymous for the contest...

My favorite elf? Ernie Keebler. He gives me cookies. And I'm gonna need a lot of "comfort food" after that election.
