The Lyrics

they came here looking for something
someone to play, not with themselves
who was that quarterback? no body..
"anyone" was what they needed else
shut down the passes, and the running,
weaknesses now not concealed
it may be warm down there Miami,
there's cold streets by Soldier Field

you won't listen, you won't hear this
and I don't care how it makes you feel
can Jim McMahon come back and coach, please
right in the streets by Soldiers Field

I wagered bucks on san Francisco,
'till their quarterback was stacked
and then I saw their "wide receiver"
it made me sick, and I came back
left him a playbook, and a game sheet
told him yes, that they were real
Chigaco plays too easily optioned
and now the game's a "Dungy deal"

you won't listen, you won't hear this
and I don't care how it makes you feel
can Jim McMahon come back and coach, please
right in the streets by Soldiers Field

how many teams can rightly repeat?
can Tony pull that one off, please???

DKTOS, but it was funny. Pro Football Hall-of-Famer Frank Gifford is from Bakersfield, if that helps. He and the New York Giants beat the Chicago Bears for the NFL Championship at a frozen Yankee Stadium in 1956, but lost it to the Bears at a frigid Wrigley Field in 1963.
