The Lyrics

http://www.encyclopediadramatica.com/index.php/An_hero
The football fans ran down along Mean Street
The Patriots fell on their 'hind
I looked across and there I saw Brady
Waiting to go and jump the line
And with her head next to his shoulder
His young and lovely Giselse
From what I've saw, they were both struggling
And through my ears I heard her say

"Brady, don't be an hero, please don't throw away your life"
"Brady, don't be an hero, just please let go of that knife"
And as he started to go she said "Brady, take your meds slo-o-ow"
"Brady, don't be an hero, please let it be"

The Patriots have fought to an upside
The battle raging by a pound
Then Strahan cried "We've got to hang on, win"
"We got to run those cheats a'ground"
"I can guarentee that we will win"
"And come right back with Giant win"
As Eli's hand was trapped for a minute
He escapes and shows no limit

We said
"Brady, please be an hero, you are a fool with your life"
"Brady, please be an hero, go back and reach for your knife"
And as he started to go Bill said "Brady, my life now blo-o-ow"
"Brady, don't be a hero, come back to me"

I heard Bill Belichick got a letter
That told how Brady died that day
The letter said that he died an hero
He should be proud he died that way
I heard he threw that letter away
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWPjHAqrDb0 Stay away from that knife Tom Brady.

I'll give you 18 reasons why Tom Brady should go on living, but he'll only need 1. You, of course, will get 5.

Tom Brady, a ~San Mateo~ coast-county boy.

Any parody of the Patriots is A-OK with me... 5-5-5

Sorry i couldn't get my tongue round "Giselse ". Plus being English i got excited because i though it was about real football (soccer). This was the first Record i bought so i know it well and some of the pacing was a bit off! I'm off to find out who Tom Brady is. Good effort.

SOTM - I could tell that you are into the subject here, that always make for the parody, heck even Pacholek approved so even though I don't really get it it most have something valid.
Matthias - April 19, 2008 - Report this comment
I'm not a sports fan so I didn't really understand much of the parody, but that's not the problem here. The problem is that you used far too much of the original song, which took away from the creativity here.
Agrimorfee - April 25, 2008 - Report this comment
Matthias' comment is often common with sports-themed parodies, but many of the subs were clever, if not hilarious. Without your link to the story, I couldn't understand it...matter of fact, I still don't.
Max Power - April 25, 2008 - Report this comment
No need to worry, I exaggerated Brady's reaction on losing Super Bowl XLII by suggesting that he's suicidal.
Red Ant - April 25, 2008 - Report this comment
Ahh, encyclopedia dramatica! Not one of their better articles, but this is one of your better parodies, Max. The pacing and rhyming are pretty tight.
Guy - April 27, 2008 - Report this comment
(SOTM-Mar08) Dispite the negative commentary on this parody and my limited interest in spectator sports I think this was well done. And I echo what Red Ant says.

Added comment - 44 votes! Impressive!!! This inclused my 3 fives.

Thank you Max for forcing me to re-live a painful moment I had all but forgotten.
The parody was funny though...

Didn't get the story, I'm afraid, even after reading the "An hero" link..

(SOTM) I'm afraid you've lost me on this one. The link confused me to no end, so there's not much else to say, really.

Mikey Squirrel - April 29, 2008 - Report this comment
SOTM- Maybe I'm just tired, but- not being a football fan or knowing anything about the subject matter at all (And the whole 'an hero' thing made it more confusing) made it difficult for me to completely get this one. Still, good work, Max.
McKludge - April 30, 2008 - Report this comment
SOTM - Title sub is good, but Hero in the title and the subject of Brady being suicidal don't mesh well.
Below Average Dave - April 30, 2008 - Report this comment
A bit lost buddy, and I have to echo McKludge's opinion on the suicidal bit.
Fourchani - October 10, 2008 - Report this comment
McKludge: It's a reference to the Encyclopedia Dramatica term "an hero", which refers to someone who commits suicide, particularly in stupid fashion.

See my comments above - this is still heroic. Even Brady doesn't deserve all the one votes on this.

(ABC) don't understand the subject matter, but it was quite well-written, Max, although the last verse was the same as the OS - any parody of that OS is an improvement btw - 555
Melanie Lee - March 27, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) The playoffs and the Super Bowl are a distant memory--if I remember correctly, the Patriots just missed the SB...anyway, I don't remember who's who. I did look up "An hero" before reading this parody, but the parody just didn't turn me on. No laughs. 5-3-4.

Again you've forced me to re-visit this painful event. (see above)

(Artistry) I do loves me some football. And although I would be more willing to picture Brady at the end of the Super Bowl as being more murderous than suicidal, you did well with the concept.
Medemia - September 06, 2009 - Report this comment
While I love football and sports humor, I guess I missed some of this because a lot of the same words were used. Some incorporation is good and I like. I guess it was a little distracting though. 5-3-4
bobpiecheese - September 08, 2009 - Report this comment
(Artistry) Still confused. And now that I know the OS, you left in a few too many of the original lines, particularly the last stanze, which was near wholesale lifted from the OS...not the best way to end a parody.
Below Average Dave - September 11, 2009 - Report this comment
(Artistry) See above, two times over, but I still don't get the unabombers you attract. . .that doesn't make much sense to me, your parodies are not offensive. . .political. . .or even remotely controversial. . .how'd you get all these haters Max???
