The Lyrics

With Manny Ramirez being busted by Major League Baseball for using female fertility drugs, there should be an investigation on what he was really using those for. Here is one possible result of that pending investigation.
He leads a loaded life
He leads a loaded life

When he showed up late that evening
He had wondered what he’d done
He opened up his eyes and thought
O what a problem
He couldn’t take the steroids
So he took these pills instead
Little did he know he’d end up stuffed
Didn’t think they’d catch him

All that he wants is to play some baseball
But he got a little more
All that he wants is to make the playoffs
All that he wants is to make millions
But now he’s pregnant
All that he wants is his water to break

All that he wants – all that he wants

With Dodgers in his sight if the price is right
Scott Boris said take this box
It’s Manny being Manny but
It won’t last forever
Didn’t think these side effects
Would cause his breasts to swell
Beware of those fertility drugs you take
Didn’t think they’d catch him

All that he wants is to play some baseball
But he got a little more
All that he wants is to make the playoffs
All that he wants is to make millions
But now he’s pregnant
All that he wants is his water to break

All that he wants is to play some baseball (epidural!)
Get the epidural
All that he wants is to make the playoffs
All that he wants is to make his millions (It’s a baby Manny!)
But now he’s pregnant
All that he wants is his water to break….

All that he wants – All that he wants
Hope you enjoyed it. No rights reserved unless you really want them.

That's Manny being Manny, now he's on period...

Great work on this one, but this is not an 80s song, its a 90s song. Still, it's a great read, but it might have also been helpful if you'd written it from Manny's point of view, such as "All that I want is to play some baseball..". Still, it rocks.

That is a good idea Greg... let me see if I can work that around.

I'm not big into sports, so I can't really enjoy this one as much as others, though I'm sure its great. I'm going to refrain from voting because it would be unfair to vote when I don't know the subject that well.

Funny notion that Manny could get preggers from his drugs. Not too baseball-centric from my POV, so that's a good thing. A good one.

This sheds a whole new neaning to the term "Base on Balls". I wonder if the Dodgers will give him maternity leave? I've heard of cross dressing but never cross dosing. 5 hits, 5 runs, 5 errors.

(ABC) Kind of a strange change from steroids to getting pregnant, but then so is Manny very strange. The write had good pacing and fit the OS well.

(ABC) Manny always spells trouble & controversy, and it's a shame cause MAN can he slam the ball!!

ABC5(M)...Unique concept...555!!!

Don't really follow sports or the news that often so I didn't really understand nor actually care about a lot of this parody. I love your work Medemia but this one just didn't do anything for me.
Medemia - August 06, 2009 - Report this comment
That's understandable Matthias. Not everyone is into sports and that's cool. I just found it funny that Manny didn't get busted for steroids but for a female fertility drug that is used to mask steroids. Early work :) Wait... you love my work?!?

Well, Medemia, I hope you keep entering contests, the first few you've entered have been really tight, hard to compete in contest with major parodies being brought up in the ABC, Artistry and SOTM. . .I really like that you parody such a wide variety of music, I thought I was the only "AOB" parodist on the site who voluntarily does them, thanks for proving me wrong, and fun recording. The topic fit for me, a few slight pacing quibbles, but you worked them out for the recording. It may not make my top 5, but only because the M round is a tough round this cycle, keep fine tuning, keep pushing, you are getting there.

(ABC5) Exactly what Matthias said, with the addition of since this being based around baseball, I have less reason to care since last time I checked no-one cares about baseball in Australia - it's either cricket or the AFL, basically.

I normally don't get into sports parodies too much, but I dug this. This is something like I would expect to see on The Onion.
