The Lyrics

There's a game goin' on but he don't know it, he can't see a thing around him
Guess he forget his glasses at home today, must've left the house without 'em.
Watch him! Ignoring all those fouls constantly, baby
They can break the rules, totally free

Come on, you don't have a clue, you stupid referee
(Don't have a clue, you stupid referee)

I want to hurt that loser, I wanna go down there and pound him
I bet he's got his eyes closed down there, makin' these calls at random
Stupid! This guy's 'bout as smart as a flea, baby
Another blatant foul that he didn't see

See, you don't have a clue, you stupid referee
(Don't have a clue, you stupid referee)
No buddy, you don't have a clue, you stupid referee
(Won't give the other team a penalty)

I'm getting tired of this jerk
Hey, can we get a ref with eyes that still work
I got money ridin' on this too
That's one hundred dollars I'm going to lose...

Right there, somehow, that player just made an illegal move right by him
Who knows, I bet they paid him off, I bet they bought or blackmailed or bribed him

Honey, makes me wanna smash my TV
Baby, he's gonna blow the next call, I guarantee

Hey man, you don't have a clue, you stupid referee
(Don't have a clue you stupid referee)
No, you don't have a clue, you stupid referee
(This is the dumbest ref you'll ever see)
Buddy, you don't have a clue, you stupid referee
(He's got the brains of a chimpanzee)
Oh, oh, oh...

The Great Karlando - January 31, 2004 - Report this comment
As a football coach, I've had more than my share of run-ins with refs. Not that I intentionally go after em or anything. But usually, our conversations tend to be a tad on the edgy side.
