The Lyrics

My sister Kim lived in Seattle, and she rooted for the Sonics when they had Gary Payton, George Karl and Shawn Kemp. She still continued to root for them long after Kemp and Karl were gone. (She died in a car accident in 2001.)
I saw the Sonics game last night
But they lost and my heart broke and I let out sad sighs
Cause they were on the short side
Used to love them when they ruled on the court
I remember when Gary wouldn't let you score
And then I'd see the Reign Man score
I loved the way that Kemp would dunk
Shawn really knew how to bring the funk
Now the pressure's on, the Sonics are so torn

I still follow them, although they're not the same
The Sonics are my team, running up and down the floor
When the Sonics lose, oh it's such a shame
I'm wide awake and I can see Seattle's oh so torn

Allen's shooting out the lights tonight
And he also has big Rashard Lewis on his side
But I haven't seen Nick Collison and
I wonder where he's been all year, my heart is beating oh so fast
You can see it on Coach McMillan's face, he's torn

I still follow them, although they're not the same
The Sonics are my team, running up and down the floor
When the Sonics lose, oh it's such a shame
I'm wide awake and I can see Seattle's oh so torn
I'm up really late, and I'm really torn, torn
Payton alley-oops to Kemp for a dunk
They really knew how to briing the funk
Now the pressure's on, the Sonics are so torn

I still follow them, although they're not the same
The Sonics are my team, running up and down the floor
When the Sonics lose, oh it's such a shame
I'm wide awake and I can see Seattle's oh so torn
I still follow them, although they're not the same
The Sonics are my team, running up and down the floor
I'm up really late, and I'm really torn, torn
