The Lyrics

Goodbye, Art Modell, we will never forget all the times
You changed the way pro football was played
You came from Brooklyn, they said you were the pride of Cleveland
But you moved the Browns, and they had to change their name

It seems to me you've lived your life like a Raven in the nest
Never knowing who to cling to, though you tried your best
I would've liked to hate you, but I'm from Baltimore
The pride that the Colts had lost, the Ravens have restored

I remember back when you introduced the world
To the wonderful league that is the NFL
And long before you moved, the press always hounded you
For such things as instant replay and the merger with the AFL

It seems to me you've lived your life like a Raven in the nest
Never knowing who to cling to, though you tried your best
I would've liked to hate you, but I'm from Baltimore
The pride that the Colts had lost, the Ravens have restored

Goodbye, Art Modell, we will never forget all the times
You changed the way pro football was played
Goodbye, Art Modell, you made this long-morbid town come alive
And we loved the fact that you won Super Bowl XXXV

It seems to me you've lived your life like a Raven in the nest
Never knowing who to cling to, though you tried your best
And I would've liked to hate you, but I'm from Baltimore
The pride that the Colts had lost, the Ravens have restored

I would've liked to hate you, oh but I'm from Baltimore
The pride that the Colts had lost, the Ravens have restored...

All ones for praising this inhuman waste of space. Bob Irsay, the man who made Baltimore a baseball town, is the only football team owner who was ever a lower form of life, and that includes Al Davis and Clint (JFK suspect) Murchison. Yes, Baltimore deserves a team. They deserve the Colts.
