The Lyrics

I never knew much heartbreak in my life
Except the 1980s were a real dark time
Steinbrenner drives everybody up the wall
Anytime the Yankees fell too short in the fall
Oh...they think they're special
Oh...they think they're something else
OK, so we got beat by the Bums

Why did the Yankees lose
To the hated Dodgers back in '81?
Now don't get me wrong, cause I think they're all right
But losing most certainly isn't fun
Why did the Yankees lose?

And then along came Jeter, and Joe Torre
And New York won four of those World Series
They almost won another, but slipped back
Against an unknown enemy, the Diamondbacks
Oh...they think they're special
Oh...they think they're something else
OK, so Arizona beat them

Why did the Yankees lose
To the Diamondbacks in 2001?
Now don't get me wrong, cause I think they're all right
But losing most certainly isn't fun
Why did the Yankees lose?

Another year passed and they failed it, too
I really had to throw up back in 2002
I can't believe what happened on that night
Now tell me Anaheim, you must be joking, right?
Oh...they think they're special
Oh...they think they're something else?
OK, so the Angels won

Why did the Yankees lose
To the Anaheim Angels back in '02?
Now don't get me wrong, cause I think they're all right
But we know everybody doesn't want to lose

Why did the Yankees lose
To the Florida Marlins back in '03?
Now don't get me wrong, cause I think they're all right
But I don't like what's happened to the New York Yankees team
Why did the Yankees lose?

OK, you really think A-Rod will make us better?

1981: Lemon pinch-hit for Tommy John in the fourth inning of Game 6. 2001: Rivera apparently can't throw to any base other than home. 2002: Wells was having one of his moments. 2003: Jeff Weaver Jeff Weaver Jeff Weaver Jeff Weaver Jeff Weaver! And Soriano! And Wells had one of his moments! 2004: Five straight over Oakland (which really is a big deal) and KC (which may not be), and now that Jon Lieber is back, we'll be ready the next time the Class of 1918 comes in.
