The Lyrics

A hockey love song during the strike...
Where have all the players gone?
Where are the Devils fans?
Where's the puck-wise centerman
In skin-tight hockey pants?
Isn't there a white Hat to break out through the seam?
Late at night, he shoots and he scores, and I'm swooning in my dreams!

I need a hero!
I'm holding out for some hockey till the end of the night!
He's gotta shoot high
And he's gotta shoot wide
And he's gotta switch lines on the fly
I need a hero!
I'm holding out for some hockey till the end of the week!
I've got to get checked
Cause I know I'd be hooked
If he'd spend just two minutes with me!

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Dreaming of a power play
With number sixteen in the crease!
Racing down the left wing, crowd stomping to the beat
It's gonna take an hockey star to sweep me off my feet!

I need a hero!
I'm holding out for some hockey till the end of the night!
He's going to score
By the end of this tune
And before we eat all of his fries!
I need a hero!
I'm holding out for some hockey till the morning light!
Oh I wish he could be
On a line just with me
And he wouldn't be called for offsides!

I need a hero!
I'm holding out for some hockey till the end of the night...

*instrumental break*

I need a hero!
I'm holding out for some hockey till the end of the night!
He's gotta shoot high
And he's gotta shoot wide
And he's gotta switch lines on the fly
I need a hero!
I'm holding out for some hockey till the end of the week!
I've got to get checked
Cause I know I'd be hooked
If he'd spend just two minutes with me!

Are you Canadian by any chance Jeff? a bit of a break from the Red Sox sport parodies - DKT sport, but DID KTOS - and a good job done of it - 555
Jeff Reuben - November 02, 2004 - Report this comment
Not Canadian, but I'm a huge hockey fan (I'm in a roller league, I play pickup ice hockey now and then, and love to watch...well, when there's a league to watch).

Good Lord, you're fantastic at this parody thing...
Jeff Reuben - November 04, 2004 - Report this comment
Thank you...this is actually a re-tread. I wrote it years ago and it's posted on my website as Holding Out For A Hatley...a song about a guy on my roller hockey team, and a girl with a crush on him. I changed it up last week to make it understandable to the general public (so I don't get millions of "What the heck is a Hatley"'s)

(SB) Wow, an entire parody about the hockey strike and you didn't use the term "puckheads" once. Enjoyed!

(Summertime) Puck everlasting!

(Summertime) Should've recognised the song from Shrek 2...oh, and you missed a bit. And it's too bad I'm in the same league as Stuart McArthur as DK the sport. I'm actually not much of a sport guy (SHOCK, HORROR!). Nice parody, anyway.

I too am not a sports guy, but who gives a puck? This song was cool, litterly!!!

(SB) Yeah, I agree with Pieman in that I think you left a bridge out, but nice work anyway.

(SB) A seasonal fantasy from the Zamboni of your mind!
Jeff Reuben - June 20, 2006 - Report this comment
Yes, I forgot to post a sign that the bridge is out. =(

I wish I knew enough about hockey to fully appreciate this. I'll go sit out in the penalty box now....
Stuart McArthur - June 21, 2006 - Report this comment
(SB) well, at least I've learnt enough to know that you're not Canadian now, Jeff, going by my last comment, but sadly hockey is still a complete mystery to me - but lol on all the puck puns everyone :-)
