The Lyrics

At first I wanted to do Bruce Springsteen's "American Skin" -- you know, what the Leaf goalie faces every night: "41 Shots!" -- but this is a better idea. Tim Hardin wrote it, Rod Stewart sang it. I can't believe anyone would root for these guys. They're the Boston Red Sox of hockey! Sure, they'll beat the Philadelphia Flyers -- choker vs. choker, something has to give -- but they'll never go all the way. The last time they did, Lester Pearson was Prime Minister, not the airport to which they always return with their heads down and their tails between their legs.
If I listened long enough to you
I'd find a way to believe your team of blue
knowing that they lost, straight-up, they got tossed.
You should look to find a reason to de-Leaf.

Someone like you makes it hard to give the Cup to someone else.
Someone like you makes it easy to root for a team that respects itself.

If you gave me time to change your mind
you'd find a way to leave the past behind
knowing you're no bride, bridesmaid, again you cried.
You should look to find a reason to de-Leaf.

Someone like you makes it hard to give the Cup to someone else.
Someone like you makes it easy to root for a team that respects itself.

If I listened long enough to you
I'd find a way to believe your team of blue
knowing that they lost, straight-up, they got tossed.
You should look to find a reason to de-Leaf.
From a fan of the New Jersey Devils, Stanley Cup Champions 1995 and 2000...and 2-0 in Playoff series with the Toronto Maple Leafs. This year might make it 3-0...if the Leafs get that far.

I don't know anything about hockey, but I know the song well and the pacing was great. The word 'de-leaf' alone in that position renders it hilarious!

If you don't know anything about hockey, but are willing to admit it, then you're one up on half the Leafs' roster! Maybe somebody can rewrite Neil Diamond's "Cherry Cherry" for Don.
