The Lyrics

The New Jersey Nets have done did it! Pronounce 0-18 as "Oh-Eighteen". OS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoCVr0m3IIA Story: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5gUqvEEsMHqRXXRRSQx1ybQyd7bLAD9CBIIVG0
NEW JERSEY NETS:

Put the trophies away.
Cork the champagne.
Cancel victory flow’rs!
0-18!
It’s pitiful!
And it’s ours.

We’re a joke of a team:
Jay Leno’s dream!
He’ll speak punchlines for hours!
0-18!
It’s laughable.
And it’s ours.

We’re the losers.
We’re the Nets.
We’re even worse than the New York Mets.
We touched the ball;
The ball went flump!
Ooo, when we played
We hit a slump!

We ran onto the court,
And into the wall!
Fans shouted, “Nets, hit the showers!”
0-18!
It’s criminal,
But it’s ours.

[Fired our coach—he’s to blame!
—but we play the same!
We are as bad as it gets!
0-18!
We’re beatable!
We’re the Nets!]

We’re the losers.
We’re so poor,
We put the “sh...” in New Jersey’s shore.
We plan to move
To Brooklyn way.
Brooklynites say,
“Stay in N.J.!”

We ran onto the court
And into a skid!
Worst blasted start of all time!
0-18!
The laughingstock
Of ’09!
0-18!
The record books
Say we’re swine!
0-18!
Hey, Dr. J!
Please re-sign!

All wet! All wet! The Nets!
All wet! All wet! The Nets!
All wet! All wet! The Nets!
All wet! All wet! The Nets…!
Dr. J is Julius Erving, star of the Nets in the 1970s, who led them to a championship. Gone are the days!

Great parody, its votable, got three fives ( I think I like the original version of the OS that was in American Grafitti better, though this version's good too!)

Speaking as someone who's lived near Cleveland (Browns), Milwaukee (Brewers), Kansas City (Chiefs), and Dallas (Rangers), I can *definitely* relate! [Maybe I'm just bad luck...] ;)

Nice bash, I bet they can make it to 0-21.

Very good spoof of the team. Now who's going to spoof Kiki Vandeweghe, the team's general manager who is taking over as coach, but waited until the interim coach set the loss record?

Not much of a sports fan but this was still a fun little tune and I liked that bit about Jay Leno mocking your sports team.

(ABC) Sports team parodies are notoriously hard to make fun for anyone who is not familiar with the team, but you made it funny and relatable for me. You scored 555.

ABC - as a fan of Australia's worst AFL football team, I can totally relate to these sentimenst Melanie and it was a joy to surf the pacing of this one - perfect parody, and heartfelt! - 555

Sports parodies are hard for me to judge, since I pretty much live under a rock when it comes to sports, but this gets a 555. Way to close out ABC!

I have never been much of a basketball fan, but obviously I've heard about the NJN debacle because I follow hockey--and if you follow any sport, the Nets record shattering worst start of all time was heard across all sports channels, sites, etc. Nice job capturing the moment, didn't make me laugh horribly hard, but still enjoyed it. . .
