The Lyrics

Can you believe the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers in a 5 OT thriller that ended past midnight? Well, here it is to refresh your memory...
Whoa, oh, oh
going overtime
Whoa, oh, oh
going overtime

Flyers, Penguins, game's all tied at 1
Overtime play, ready to begin
All set to play here
1 goal can break the tie
and win the game in a nutshell in overtime

Some fans thought they had just to go home
They want 2 teams to keep this game on
The clock keeps ticking
every single 5 minutes
right up after midnight, it's still overtime

Oh, oh, oh
Going overtime
Oh, oh, oh
going over
fighting, hitting players to the wall
In this playoff thriller of them all
One team could win too
3 away after 2 and soon there'll be a winner here in overtime

It lasted 87 minutes long
with the regular hour
Insomniacs turned it on
They've been playing hard
and they made it this far
A goal was what the fans hoped for

How much time does this game will go on?
By past 12, the fans were just 1/2 gone
They took their chances
with figure skating dances
Some fans were there to witness the overtimes

5th overtime, get ready to start
Fans in the stands
held on to their hearts
ESPN kept it right where it was
They had 4 overtimes so far
A win was what the fans hoped for

Keith Primeau scores one for the Flyers
Won the game and the series was tied up
They did play so bad
The papers noticed that
The game we know took players the 5 overtimes

Oh, oh, oh
In 5 overtimes
Oh, oh, oh
In 5 overtimes
Oh, oh, oh
In 5 overtimes

Speaking of overtime, Harris just intercepted Hasselbeck for a 52 yard TD that advanced Green Bay in the playoffs. Go Pack!
