The Lyrics

Oh, Shea, can’t you squeak
Into post-season nights?
Oh, how proud we would be
Had the Mets kept on peaking!
Orange blocks and blue seats
‘Neath LaGuardia’s flights
Near the 7 Train’s screech
And the Flushing Bay reeking.
Oh, for Gooden’s pitches!
And Piazza’s catches!
Now, playoff’s tonight
And the Mets aren’t there.
Oh, Shea, could that star-making
Pennant wave yet
O’er the bland Citifield,
The new home of the Mets?

Yes, Pacholek did this last year (The Star-Mangled Ballclub), but it bears revisiting!

Cute! (and a sports parody that I can understand!). It's a sad day for baseball.

Flushing Bay is what's reeking? Well, maybe that too...
