The Lyrics

Only true Pacer sufferers like me can understand this... but NBA fans everywhere will never forget the tallest mid range jump shooter in the league
6 PM day after Friday
I sit down to watch the game
The game starts.... He hits a jumper
I'm hoping for more of the same

Down the court it is his third foul
3:15 left in the first
3 for 6 only 1 rebound
7'4 guys can't get worse

And I sigh, now that Rik has his third foul
I'm feelin worse than ever
Than I ever have before

He's a Rik and he's aging quickly
On the bench and he's headed no where
He's a Rik and he's flailing pointlessly

Resume play in the 3rd quarter
His fourth foul comes in just 8 ticks
I walk down to get a soda
Pacers lose because of Rik

Can't you see, this lame ass is 7'4
But he's even worse now, than he's ever been before

He's a Rik and he bricks a layup
Hits his man on the top of the head
He's a Rik and he breaks his toe bones

As years went by it showed that he was night fine
They told Rik, son, time to quit the game cuz his
Legs broke down, and feet broke down, cuz he was tired.... Of foulin

Now I watch, Primos Brezec
Another 7'3" center stiff
He's a stiff, Rik's a stiff, He's the next one.....

He's a Rik and he can't block point guards
Hasn't got a steal in 6 years
He's a Rik and he is retired....

Uh, I think you have the "original song title" and the "parody song title" opposite where they should be. (Brick is the original song title.) I'm surprised no one mentioned this earlier.

I don't know anything about the player, but you painted a detailed portrait. I liked the usage of numbers throughout, and how the original song's mood fits with the singer's disappointment in the player's abilities. 555

What the hell's the matter with you? You can't even get the god damned title right. I'm giving your parody 1, 1, 1. Why? Because I can't give it -1, -1, -1! In all the parodies that have been submitted to this site, of all the authors, I have never seen a display of such stupidity in my life. Maybe Mike & Mr. Armstrong should retire. That's right-give it up you old geezers! Just another example of the albino regieme. Like I always say though, you can't keep a brown thing down! :(
