The Lyrics

Goodbye Brett the Jet
Though you should have left long ago
You retired once then gave it anther shot
While those around you tried
They tried to bring you down
And they brought a lot of pain
You started on the treadmill
And they made you change your team
And it seems to me you lived your life
Playing football in the end
Never knowing who to throw to
When the blitz came in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I never did
Your shoulder burned out long before
Your contract ever did
The Ravens game was tough
The toughest game you ever played
Green Bay created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid
Even when you retired
Oh the press still betrayed you
All the papers had to say
Was that Brett was gone for good
And it seems to me you lived your life
Playing football in the end
Never knowing who to throw to
When the blitz came in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I never did
Your shoulder burned out long before
Your contract ever did
Goodbye Brett the Jet
From the young man in the 22nd row
Who saw all the interceptions that you throw
More than their Broadway Joe
