The Lyrics

A parody of the They Might Be Giants classic (To remind you of the NHL team movements)
The Colorado Avalanche were the Quebec Nordiques
Now they're the Colorado Avalanche, not the Quebec Nordiques
Been a long time gone for the Quebec Nordiques,
Now they're Stanley Cup countin' in the Rocky Mountains.

All the fans of the Winnipeg Jets
Root for the Phoenix Coyotes, not the Winnipeg Jets
So you wanna see a fan of the Winnipeg Jets
You'll find 'em in the Valley of the Sun.

Even the New Jersey Devils were once the Kansas City Scouts
Why they changed it I can't say
Guess it just sounded tougher that way

So I wanna go see the Hartford Whalers
No, you can't go see the Hartford Whalers
Been a long time gone, the Hartford Whalers
Connecticut's cryin', who's to blame?
Nobody but the Carolina Hurricanes.

Relocation (Relocation)
Relocation (Relocation)

Even the Dallas Stars were once the Minnesota North Stars
Why they changed it I can't say
Guess Dallas was just a hotter spot, OK?

The Calgary Flames were the Atlanta Flames
Now they're the Calgary Flames, not the Atlanta Flames
Been a long time gone for the Atlanta Flames,
But the city's not said, their new team's faster,
And the Flames get whooped by the Atlanta Thrashers.


So I wanna go see the Nashville Predators
Don't know how long you'll see the Nashville Predators
Because they soon might be the Hamilton Predators
Bet you're wondering who's the next man,
That's nobody's business but Gary Bettman's!

Relocation!

Awesome Job! I have been a "Blues" fan my whole life, and as such have seen so many teams move time and time again (and I'm only 25) Unfortunately, the Predators are not exactly putting up numbers this year, and since they were already on the chopping block--I think that the chances of them moving are going up even though Basille (Hamilton) is talking about buying and keeping them in Nashville as long as they meet certain attendance floors. Carolina Hurricanes, I still have to wonder how that happened, I mean--the Hartford Whalers weren't exactly the bottom of the barrel on attendance, nor were the North Stars when they became the Stars. . .anyhow I could talk hockey all day, but you clearly KNOW hockey already--5s

A great idea, but the pacing was off quite a bit. The OS opening line is 9 syllables, but yours is 14.
For example, you second stanza could go like

All the fans of the Winnipeg Jets
Root for the Coyotes, not the Winnipeg Jets (Must pronounce it like kie-yotes)
If you wanna see a fan of Winnipeg Jets
Fly to Phoenix in Arizon'
I give it 354.
