The Lyrics

I was inspired by you guys that just read the newspaper and write a parody based on the news of the day. So I have to put this on while it's still topical. And sporty.
Out there on the court
That basketball sport
That guy named "Pat" sure made a killing
His Lakers all won
He had a great run
He found his job was quite fulfilling
Yeah yeah yeah

He Quit
His team was s**t
Miami Heat's a waste, man

Riley, run away
Don't want to coach today
Can't be a winner
Like in the past in L.A.
The champions are gone
The referees are wrong
Run to your office
Where you won't see the lame play

Heat's a waste, man
Miami Heat's a waste, man
Heat's a waste, man, oh yeah
They made you lose your taste, man

I've never followed the NBA all that closely, but I don't need to be a fan to enjoy this. Nice job, Rick. 5-4-5
