The Lyrics

I've already (sort of) used this title to this base song, but this is a different subject. The RPI is the Ratings Percentage Index, a formula that measures "strength of schedule" to assist pollsters in ranking college basketball teams. You can't do a March Madness parody without throwing in a "Cinderella team" or two. And, of course, you can't do a college basketball parody without mentioning Dickie V, baby!
(instrumental & doo-wop opening)

Upsets girl!
She's been living in a brackets world.
I'll bet she's never checked the R.P.I.!
I'll bet Dick Vitale never told her why!

But watch her fly!
She's an upsets girl!
The Duke Blue Devil fans make your hair curl.
But the Arizona Wildcats?
My girl, she picked 'em, put a stop to that.
Dukies went splat!

And when she's picking
she's sticking with lots of stealth.
An upset's in ya
Virginia Commonwealth.
Valparaiso, she once picked.
By Gonzaga, she will stick.

She's an upsets girl.
Again, she picked George Mason, what a whirl.
She's gettin' tired of the old Tar Heels.
North Carolina, they ain't what she feels.
So what's the deal?

(vocal break)

Upsets girl!
You know I can't afford this cash I hurl.
But maybe someday, with my gamblin'
I'll understand what kind of picks she's in.
And then I'll win.

The Kansas Jayhawks, ain't lookin' so fi-yi-yine.
'Cause Butler beat them. "That pick?" she said, "Mi-yi-yine."
High-seed teams, they ain't so tough.
Picks with guts? I'm in love

with an
Upsets girl!
She's been living in her brackets world.
As long as players with a hot hand can.
She likes three-pointers from a downtown man.
Gets what she can.

(vocal break)

Upsets girl!
She's my upsets girl!
Well, don't you know, I'm in love
with an
Upsets girl!
My upsets girl!
Well, don't you know, I'm in love with an
Upsets girl!
My upsets girl!
Well, don't you know, I'm in love with an
Upsets girl!
(repeat 'til fade)
Tennessee fired coach Bruce Pearl (whose name certainly fits the song) during the tournament, but, unfortunately, as a 9th seed losing to an 8th seed (in their case, the normally-good Michigan), that's not a BIG upset, so I couldn't use him. Apparently, neither can Tennessee anymore.

Micael - Who you ganna call? Bracket Busters! My wife picked Florida to win it all and I had Kansas beating Kentucky in the final, so I won by being a fraction less lame. Good job here. ;D
