The Lyrics

Here's a rewrite of the first parody I submitted to Amiright, comparing the Yankees to the Mets...what a difference two years makes!
Baseball we play
Over at Shea
Starters are hurting
We prevail anyway
Our fans are great
Now they can grin
With guys like David, Carlos, and Jose
We know we'll win

And we score runs and runs and runs and runs...

We're not the Yankees, my friends
And we will keep winning 'till the end
We're not the Yankees
We're not the Yankees
Let's make some noise now
'Cause we're not the Yankees...
...we're the METS!

We've hit our long balls
Taken curtain calls
We've got respect and players that will be in the hall of fame
But that's not all
'Cause it's been no bed of roses
Like we've been cursed
And though we've lost Pedro and El Duque we've kept our pace
And we will end up first

And we score runs and runs and runs and runs...

We're not the Yankees, my friends
And we will keep winning 'till the end
We're not the Yankees
We're not the Yankees
Let's make some noise now
'Cause we're not the Yankees...
...we're the METS!
Parody by Mason "Rabid Mets fan since 1968" Resnick (Here's my original parody, back when the Mets were a very different team.)

No, you're not the Yankees. You'd have to win every World Series between now and 2029 just to catch up. Just kills you, doesn't it? That, and the fact that the Yankees still dominate the back pages of the Daily News and the Post. Don't worry, the shuffling you're gonna get at the hands of the Cards will put you back. Just remember: You're never "take over New York" until you beat the Yankees in a World Series. That'll happen as soon as George W. Bush admits a mistake.

QC, PMS: Thanks! Alvin: Sorry for your loss and thanks for being a good sport! John: If the Mets don't make it to the series, I'll probably root for the A's, too. Michael...doesn't bother me that the Yanks get front & back page coverage. Besides, my paper's front and back pages were hidden by a 20-page Mets wrap-around special. As for beating the Yanks in the Series, too bad the Yankees were eliminated so soon. Maybe next year--that would be a blast. Daniel-Thanks!
