The Lyrics

But I'm not bitter.
I want my money back!

I want my money back!

It's all or nothing, and nothing's all this team can give!
Everytime I turn it on, they burn me up and they burn out!
It's always something, there's always something going wrong!
They ain't no real Yankees, that's what this is all about!

It's a never-starting attack!
They're a bunch of bums and that's a fact!
This team's a lemon and I want my money back!

And all the morons and all the stooges with their bats
they don't even read the rules!
The seventh game, it's just a rout!

There's Red Sox Nation, there's desperation in the air!
Don't lose to Boston, that really stinks!
And no detergent gets it out!

Why is this team slipping through the cracks?
Then the season's over, fade to black!
This team's a lemon and I want my money back!

I want my money back!

I want my money back!

(What about A-Rod?)
He's defective! Millions can't buy you a heart!
(What about Brown?)
He's defective! I would not trust him to start!
(What about Vazquez?)
He's defective! How'd he make the All-Star Team?
(What about Gordon?)
He's defective! Why'd he pick now to get creamed?
(What about Giambi?)
He's defective! I'm so sick of each excuse!
(What about Sierra?)
He's defective! He's a choker, he's no use!
(What about Matsui?)
He's defective! He's back on Tokyo time!
(What about Rivera?)
He's defective! Now ridiculous, was sublime!
(What about Jeter?)
He's defective! Some Captain he has been!
(What about Torre?)
He's defective! Won't do what it takes to win!
(What about Mystique?)
It's defective! It lies dead there on the grass!
(What about The Curse?)
It's defective! You can shove it up your ass!

I want my money back!
This team's a lemon!
I want my money back!
This team's a lemon!
This team's a lemon!

It's all or nothing, and nothing's all this team can give!
Everytime I turn it on, they burn me up and they burn out!
It's always something, there's always something going wrong!
They ain't no real Yankees, that's what this is all about!

It's a never-starting attack!
They're a bunch of bums and that's a fact!
This team's a lemon and I want my money back!

Why is this team slipping through the cracks?
Then the season's over, fade to black!
This team's a lemon and I want my money back!
Back! Back! Back!

I want my money back!

I want my money back!

This team's a lemon!
And I want... my... money...
back!
No, no, I'm not bitter at all.

Michael is a poor excuse of a parody writer. Yet we are bonded in that we are both bleeding heart Liberals. We blame America for 9/11
