The Lyrics

And I don't mean Amazing in the sense of the World Champions from 1969 or 1986. The only thing that's more amazin' is the way the Mets lose games--they lost 120 games in 1962! (That stat should make Detroit fans feel better about the Tigers, right?)
It has happened once again now
Can't believe nobody could ever be as bad as this team now
We know losing's not at all fun
But the Mets don't get it
It's so amazing to be bad
The other team beats the hell out of them at Shea
And I tell you "Don't ever root for New York Bums"

Why does it have to be like this?
There is nothing to like, and usually nothing to reminisce
Goodbye, glory, hello, losing
Nobody wants to see them
It's so amazing to be bad
The other team beats the hell out of them at Shea
And I tell you "Don't ever root for New York Bums"

And it's so amazing, amazing
How they keep on losing and losing
Thank God for the Yankees, or I'd die
I can't stand the New York Mets
Cause it's so amazing, amazing
How they keep on losing and losing
Thank God for the Yankees, or I'd die
I can't stand the New York Mets

They were winners, and I'd love them
But those days are long gone
It's so amazing to be bad
The other team beats the hell out of them at Shea

So...It's so amazing to be bad
The other team beats the hell out of them at Shea

So...It's so amazing to be bad
The other team beats the hell out of them at Shea

So...It's so amazing to be bad
The other team beats the hell out of them at Shea...

The year after losing 120, the Mets lost 111. The year after losing 119, the Tigers have already won 12 of their first 22. Who would've thought last October that, come the end of April, the Tigers would be doing better than the Red Wings? Moral of the story: There is only one M-E-T-S.
