The Lyrics

Just in time for the NFL Draft this weekend! (Well, maybe a little bit late)
Now the boss told the team's GM
"You know your team is on the clock"
The phone up in the war room
Has been ringing, it won't stop
He called his coaching staff to him
He had a twinkle in his eye
"I wasn't paying attention,
Did that team just take our guy?"
The GM don't like it!
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board!
The GM don't like it!
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board!

"By order of the owner
With the seventeenth pick
We take the Texas lineman
With him we're gonna stick"
But the fans all in attendance, who had never heard his name
Wanted the guy from 'Bama, and the team they're gonna blame
As soon as the commish, they thought was through
They began to boo!
The GM don't like it!
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board
The GM don't like it!
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board

Now over at the sports bar
Oh! They really pack 'em in
The in crowd say it's cool
Our pick at seventeen
But as they thought of their mock drafts
Thought 'bout who they'd have picked
They all changed their minds
At the team they're really ticked!
The GM don't like it!
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board
The GM don't like it!
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board

The boss called up his coaching staff
He said "You better earn your pay,
This kid is a project
Every which way."
As soon as the GM was taken out of there
The coaches all turned to the wall, began to swear
They looked at each other, their heads bowed in prayer
"That pick wasn't fair!"
The GM don't like it!
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board
The GM don't like it!
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board

The GM don't like it! (The pick is a bust now!)
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board
The GM don't like it! (Fundamentally he can't make it!)
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board
The GM don't like it! (The fans, we really hate it!)
Mockin' the draft board, mock the draft board

Charlie, good job. Now that I don't pay any attention to football at all the whole process and promotion seems completely overblown and ridiculous - especially the Media coverage and all the ecstasy and consternation it incites from local fans.

One of the few sports-related parodies i have gotten a good chuckle on. Thanks! 555

(Sports) Charlie, I'm really sad I missed this the first time around. Awesome job...at least the timing was still good for me...with the 2005 draft coming up!
Rex - March 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Cute concept. Fits the Cowboys of the late 90's - early 00's all too well. Sigh.

The draft can't come soon enough, Jeff. With no hockey, I'm dying here!

(SPORTS) Am I fatigued or does it sound like football players are traded like Pokemon.
Guy - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
(Sports) I only seem to remember the chorus to this one. I'll have to draft an MP3 then.
Claude Prez - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Those fans love to second-guess those GMs, don't they? I really liked the "had never heard his name" part. Well done.
Stuart McArthur - March 04, 2005 - Report this comment
(sports) whoa - I understand AND like this one, Charlie - 555 - and love the OS
Ethan - March 04, 2005 - Report this comment
(SPORTS) i don't know the original very well and i don't really follow football enough to appreciate this
John Jenkins - March 04, 2005 - Report this comment
I like the way you "mock" football fans who have nothing better to do with their time than go to a sports bar to watch the draft. Well done, Charlie.

(Sports) Better to celebrate your victories on beforehand than never at all...
Johnny D - March 06, 2005 - Report this comment
(Sports) Very clever, Charlie, and excellent choice of original song. The original song is like one big "Misheard Lyric", if you know what I mean ... ;-)

(sports) I agree with the last comment. but WHERE is mel kiper?
Charlie Decker - March 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Johnny: Shout if you don't like it! And, Mike, Mel Kiper is busy watching the new draft class so he can misevaluate their talent.

Charlie --- Whatever gave you the idea that I don't like this parody? I like it a lot, and I voted it 5-5-5. You did a great job here!
Charlie Decker - March 10, 2005 - Report this comment
Johnny: No no no, you misunderstand. "Shout if you don't like it" is the way that my friend, who I am trying (and succeeding) to get hooked on the Clash, hears "The Sharif don't like it." Just commenting about the fact that the song is a big old misheard lyric. Sorry we got our wires crossed!
Johnny D - March 10, 2005 - Report this comment
Ahh, I see now, thanks for clearing that up for me, Charlie! No apology necessary - if anybody should apologize here, it should be me, for assuming you doubted my approval! The potentially-misheard-lyric that I personally had in mind was not a mis-hearing of "The Sharif don't like it", but instead, a mis-hearing of "Rockin' the Casbah! Rock the Casbah!" ... specifically, a mis-hearing of "Rockin' " and "Rock". ;-)
