The Lyrics

Ok, so i'm not to into football but i heard this guy left the Dolphins and then someone got hurt like right after..so...yeah. i researched hehe.
Decide you're leaving, no Ricky!
You think that 16 weeks are just no more fun,
You know that kind of pissed us off, you smoke and run
And so you had a change of heart.

Ricky Willams screwed Miami;
Decided he didn't want to run.
Don't want to be a running back no more.
Ricky Willams screwed Miami;
It's the only job you know.
You might want to just reconsider,
Cause Boston's down.


There is a buzz in town; we've heard your name.
You had to go and injury your left knee.
You can stay inside and play games. That's all, you know?
Cause you just had to hurt yourself.

David Boston screwed Miami;
Injured his patella tendon.
Can't be a wide receiver this season.
David Boston screwed Miami;
It's the only job he had.
No chance for him to reconsider,
Ricky skipped town.

(Lead break)

We're shocked you guys, Dolphins might shine
But we can't even think, might whine.
Yet we could have the best season.

David Boston screwed Miami;
Injured his patella tendon.
Can't be a wide receiver this season.
Ricky Willams screwed Miami;
It's the only job you know.
You might want to just reconsider,
Cause Boston's down.

Ricky Willams screwed Miami
(Ricky Willams screwed Miami)
Ricky Willams screwed Miami

I don't follow a lot of professional sports, but I heard about this "smoke and run", heh!

B. - Good parody, 5's. Seriously, though, I understand Williams has some real psychological problems that make being around other people very difficult for him. Not a good thing for someone who is supposed to make his living in front of 60 or 70 thousand screaming people 20 or more weeks a year (counting exhibition and maybe some play-off games). Hopefully he has saved enough of what he has earned so far to carry him through life or at least until he finds something else he can do.

(SPORTS) This parody suffered an pacing injury in the chorus. Interesting nonetheless.

(sports) dktos but i know a little bit about the story and he wasn't smoking cigarettes (which actual would've been worse for his performance than what he did)

(SPORTS) Sounds like the Dolphins are developing a curse of their own.

(sports) - do you guys get an ailment called osteitis pubis? it runs rife through all our sporting teams - nice job
John Jenkins - March 04, 2005 - Report this comment
Excellent job of poking fun at Ricky Williams, who is very deserving of a parody, but aren't you being a little hard on David Boston?

(Sports) Can't say I know the original tuna here, but a parody about a team called the Dolphins without a single "I'm gonna flipper you some 5s" pun in the comments filed? Or did they all drift away? :-)

(Sports) See above ... also, I like it when parody authors cleverly twist and tweak some lines from the original song --- clever case-in-point here: "You can stay inside and play games. That's all, you know".

As a Colts die hard, nothing makes me happier than watching Miami suffer, however, I still must say this is a nice piece of work.
