The Lyrics

In case you can't tell......I hate the Yankees. Oh, and remember: Vote based on the song, not based on whether you're a Yankee fan. ;-)
It's really not fair
They can just go buy any player
No other team has that money anywhere
They just need to say their prayers

And most every day
Games are won by those cheaters
They bought Soriano, Matsui, Giambi, Boone,
Clemens, Mussina, and Jeter

I guess that's why the Yankees can't lose
Money's on hand, and they'll spend it on you
If they need someone, they make rip-off trades
Heaven forbid that New York would be outplayed
I guess that's why the Yankees can't lose

All games at the Bronx
Come with free jeers from the fans
It's oddly always luck when the Yanks don't win
Is Joe Torre really a man?

I do hate them
They should be banned from the game
They stack the Clippers, buy guys from Japan
And that's how they get their fame

I guess that's why the Yankees can't lose
Money's on hand, and they'll spend it on you
If they need someone, they make rip-off trades
Heaven forbid that New York would be outplayed
I guess that's why the Yankees can't lose

I do hate them
They should be banned from the game
They stack the Clippers, buy guys from Japan
And that's how they get their fame

I guess that's why the Yankees can't lose
Money's on hand, and they'll spend it on you
If they need someone, they make rip-off trades
Heaven forbid that New York would be outplayed
I guess that's why the Yankees can't lose

If they need someone, they make rip-off trades
Heaven forbid that New York would be outplayed
I guess that's why the Yankees can't lose

If they need someone, they make rip-off trades
Heaven forbid that New York would be outplayed
I guess that's why the Yankees can't lose

I guess that's why the Yankees can't lose

I'm not a Yankee fan, so this one was easy! But you forgot my boy Orosco.

Good parody, but if you really believe what you wrote above, please refer to "World Series Rings," by Me, Myself & I.

As a Met fan for more than 25 yrs, any anti-Yankee parody is appreciated. It's not about the Mets winning, it's about the Yankees losing.

Just because no one has come close the Yankees record... Doesn't mean you should diss the entire team... they play well together - no matter how they became a team! No need to be jealous of a team that plays to win! I can say this... WE BEAT boston - WooooooooHooooooooo And because of the rivarly.... I am thrilled! 1918 curse lives on!! Mary Anne Bronx, NY 2003

Bravo! Bravo! I was actually singing this while I read it! The Cheater/Jeter rhyme must be common, because I was rapping about the Yankees sucking with my friends, and my god, we all said that part in unison! We were like, "Well screw all the Yankees, from Clemens to Jeter! The Yankees are such, dumb 'lil cheaters!" Hey, wdh, 5,5,5! Do you mind if I take your idea for a parody? Well, it's your idea, so I won't complain if you say no! tj out to write an "Avril Sucks" parody!

Yeah, its not fair that the Yankees should be able to buy players, when everyone else brings their roster up from the farm system. Sorry, losers. You suck. New York Rules! I won't rate this, 'cause I can't be impartial.

(ABCs) G'day mate. Blimey, I'm an Australian bloke who true-blue has no idea what the red bonzer you're on about. Crikey, my sheila would've stopped reading this ripper like a lizard drinking. 4s.

abc - I can't usually rate the sports parodies because I don't know enough about professional sports to know how to rate the funny or overall categories, so I especially liked that you made this accessible even to me!
John Jenkins - June 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Good parody. The "Clipper" reference was ironic (I know it's the ship, not the basketball team) because the Clippers are the opposite kind of sports franchise from the Yankees - they can't win.

(ABC) Sports parodies are rough on me, but this one seemed pretty good!

Ditto Ralphing Luke's comment, except without the Aussie stuff.
