The Lyrics

Carter was a phenom coming out of Chapel Hill
He was flying so high, he went beyond the sky

In the cold of a winter night, in the city of Toronto still
When Vince Carter's Raptors died, they talk about it still
When the Carter dude first came along, try to make this team his own
He defied gravity with his trademark Vinsanity

I saw Vince Carter cry, I saw him play the night the Raptors died
Brother what a loss it really was, brother what a year it really was
(Oh no)
I saw Vince Carter cry, I saw him play the night the Raptors died
Brother why'd the season go so wrong?
Brother where the hell did it go wrong? (I don't know)

No matter who tried to stop him he'd dunk right in the defender's face
And they'd all go crazy, all throughout the sold-out place
But now their stars are hurt, and the team's about to fire their coach
And I wonder if Vinsanity will ever feel the same again

I saw Vince Carter cry, I saw him play the night the Raptors died
Brother what a loss it really was, brother what a year it really was
(Oh no)
I saw Vince Carter cry, I saw him play the night the Raptors died
Brother why'd the season go so wrong?
Brother where the hell did it go wrong? (I don't know)

But now, the season's gone, Stick a fork in them, they're done
They're out of the playoffs, too, Vince had led them to a few
There's always next year, and it's drawing ever near
The night the Raptors died

The night the Raptors died, na na na na na na na na na na na
The night the Raptors died, Brother why'd the season go so wrong?
Brother where the hell did it go wrong? (I don't know)

The night the Raptors died, na na na na na na na na na na na
The night the Raptors died, Brother what a loss it really was
Brother what a year it really was (Oh no)

The night the Raptors died, na na na na na na na na na na na
The night the Raptors died, Brother why'd the season go wrong?
Brother where the hell did it go wrong? (I don't know)
