The Lyrics

This is a song about the beleagured OTHER New York Baseball
team as it stumbles to the start of the 2004 season.
Our outfielders are bruised
Our pitchers are old
We have the best injured middle infield in the league
that hasn't played--or so I'm told
And bad mistakes, we've made a few
A league-leading 49 errors in spring training?
Boy, we're screwed

and it goes on and on and on and on...

We're not the Yankees, my friend
And we'll be stuck in last place till the end
We're not the Yankees,
We're not the Yankees
The papers ignore us
'cause we're not the Yankees...
...we're the Mets.

We play across town
We don't make a sound
We've got the greatest team of patients money can buy
and pitchers mow down
Once day we'll be great, today we suck beer
I'm surprised anyone's still in the stands
or knows we're still here

and it goes on and on and on and on...

We're not the Yankees, my friend
And we'll be stuck in last place till the end
We're not the Yankees,
We're not the Yankees
The papers ignore us
'cause we're not the Yankees...
...we're the Mets.
(Don't get me wrong--I wish all the ancient and injured Mets a speedy
recovery so this song becomes obsolete!)

I'm actually starting to miss Bobby Valentine. You know why he went back to Japan? Because sushi gives him less of an upset stomach than the M-E-T-S! It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S! They don't have anything for baseball fans to enjoy! They only have all that airplane noise! (Have I said that before?)

OK, this is my first parody attempt, and I agree the pacing's off in a few places. But then again, the Mets' pacing is kind of off, too...
