The Lyrics

I wrote this in preparation for an interleague series between the Yankees and The Other Team. With the result of the 2000 World Series, it seems pointless to make fun of the boys from aptly-named Flushing. But "pointless" doesn't necessarily mean "unnecesscary." True, the firing of Bobby Valentine makes the song slightly out of date, but the question still remains: Whose idea was it to put Shea Stadium next to LaGuardia Airport?
Met fan! Your team is going down! I say
Met fan! Six feet under the ground! I say
Met fan! This is the Bronx Bombers' town!
That's why you... are... so... unhappy!

Met fan! There's a place you can go! I say
Met fan! It's real hot there, you know! I say
Met fan! The Yankees will blow your mind
October... glo... ry... you... won't find!
(bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp)

It's fun to laugh at 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!
It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S!
It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S!
They can't find the strike zone!
They're not hitting the ball!
They've got their backs up against the wall!

Met fan! Are you listening to me? I say
Met fan! We're what you wanna be! I say
Met fan! You can make real your dreams
but not with... that... ball... club... in Queens!

Met fan! Bobby Valentine's dumb! I say
Met fan! Mike Piazza's a bum!
And we come down Roosevelt Avenue
and we'll make... mince... meat... out... of you!
(Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp)

It's fun to laugh at 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!
It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S!
It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S!
They can't find the strike zone!
They're not hitting the ball!
They've got their backs up against the wall!

Met fan! I was once in your shoes! I say
I was down and out with the blues! I thought
no man could get the Yankees in gear
and the Mets... had... been... good... for years!

That's when Joe Torre turned it around! I say
Met fan! This is the Bronx Bombers' town! I say
Met fan! The Yankees are Number 1
and you'll nev... er... match... what... we've done!
(Bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp, bomp)

It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S!
It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S!
Met fan, Met fan, this is not '69!
Met fan, Met fan, you have run out of time!

M-E-T-S! It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S!
Met fan, Met fan, this is not '86!
Met fan, Met fan, go home, watch the Knicks!

M-E-T-S! It's fun to laugh at the M-E-T-S!
Met fan, Met fan, Bobby Valentine's dumb!
Met fan, Met fan, Mike Piazza's a bum!
(repeat until fade)
Ballgame over. Subway Series over. Yankees win. Theeeeeeee Yankees win!

Does your claim that the Yankees are #1 just refer to New York City? Isn't that a little elitist for you, Michael? After all, the Yankees - the best team money can buy - lost in the 2001 World Series and did not get to the 2002 World Series. Actually, I think that your parody does an excellent job of humorously showing us non-New Yorkers the intensity of the NYC baseball rivalry. 5-5-5.

Can't stand the Yankees, but the parody was just fine. Can't stand the Mets either for that matter, that's what made it bearable :) Braves fan here, so that would explain it.

none of you have probably heard from me much because my reviews are usually from bands like good charlotte and linkin park and system of a down and i am usually very tough and dont say nice things. but this song is the first song that i LOVED. it was funny and just GREAT. even though i am a mets fan i still thought it was hilarious

This is from a red sox fan, so despite the yankees humor, it was still hilarious.
