The Lyrics

Got it!

Well, you wake up in the morning, read the Daily News!
The Red Sox won the Series and you've got the blues!
Joe Torre's told the Steinbrenners, "Hey, no thanks!"
So we need a brand-manager to run the Yanks!

They saw the light!
This guy's right!
Girardi!

Well, he was our starting catcher back in ninety-six!
That's when he hit that triple off Greg Maddux!
He caught Gooden's no-hitter, Coney's perfect game!
And he'll lead us to a title and he'll end our shame!

They saw the light!
This guy's right!
Girardi!

Well, we don't need Donnie Mattingly, we want to win!
And we don't need Alex Rodriguez, he choked again!
So now, come next October, you'll yell, "What's that noise!"
It's a ticker-tape parade for New York's Pin! Striped! Boys!

They saw the light!
This guy's right!
Girardi!

They saw the light!
This guy's right!
Girardi!

Girardi!

One of the most annoying OS's out there, but a nice tribute to a Manager of the Year winner.

Forgot the melody of the OS...wait, there is no melody.

Great 80's OS, and great parody! Unlike the previous commenters, I think the song does have somewhat of a melody, and I like Joe Torre very much. 555's for you, Mike.

Yea, I know the OS as well. 555

Liked the OS and the parody is even better. I'm a Rockies fan (so now an avowed redsox hater) and Girardi was a class act when he played for Colorado in '93-'95. 555

555 to counter someone's 222 ( probably intended to be 111 ).

This is an entertaining parody and Joe Girardi might lead the Yankees to the 2008 World Championship, but what was the last year that you did not predict the Yankees would win it all?

Nope, that didn't happen, JJ. Goes to show that you can't cross your chickens before their bridges is hatched.
