The Lyrics

Contrary to a request, I am not also doing parodies for all the National Hockey League teams. But after going out to the Island and watching my Meadowlands Marauders make monkeys out of the Coliseum Cuckoos last night (Devils 4, Islanders 0), I remembered doing this one a few years back.
Well, I'm driving the minivan Alexa
and I'm cruising the Hempstead Turnpike.
I will head for the Nassau Coliseum
and I know what I see, I won't like.

Took on Blackhawks in Chicago yesterday.
Read this morning of the lousy game they play.
Like all the locals here, I cheer the team of home.
Too proud to switch, I seem to have a head of bone.

But I still drive my Dodge minivan Alexa
and I go where the passion is deep.
There are Devils out there in New Jersey
and our team captain sure looks asleep.

I got hockey cards and blue-and-orange clothes.
I know we won four Cups, but when, God only knows!
They say the Isles aren't what they used to be.
But I've had tickets there since 1983!

So if you see my poor minivan Alexa
and if you remember Bryan Trottier
tell my wife that I still hate the Rangers
and I still hope to improve our play.

Oy vey!
Oy, oy, oyyyyyyyy vey!
Oy, oy, oyyyyyyyy vey!
Oy, oy, oyyyyyyyy vey!

Now, I drive my poor minivan Alexa
more and more miles to road games each year
since they told me I can't watch no Flyers
and there's no luck in Cup-fishing here.

I was an Isle fan like my father was before.
Can't get much winning as an Isle fan anymore!
There ain't much future for this hockey comedy.
But there ain't no Stanley Cups for Islanders like me!
Oy, oy, oyyyyyyyy vey!
Oy, oy, oyyyyyyyy vey!
Oy, oy, oyyyyyyyy vey!
Oy, oy, oyyyyyyyy, oy vey!

First of all, your pacing was subpar, as was your humor, but you still wrote a great parody. Here are 333 regulation hockey sticks autographed by Wayne Gretzky. P.S.: I name my cars, too. My Yugo is named Carmina after "her" red color and because "she" is a car, and my 1979 Chevy station wagon is named "Mater" because "he" is trashed-out and ugly, just like the "Cars" character of the same name.
