The Lyrics

I'm not saying Boston Red Sox left fielder Manny Ramirez is stupid... I'm inferring it. (See also "Shower In the Wall.")
(instrumental opening)

Dim Manny to the rescue!
Dim Manny to the rescue!
Dim Manny to the rescue!
Go, Dim Manny!
Go, Dim Manny!

Dim Manny in the batters box
stepping up the plate for Sox.
Swung his bat with some hit-away force.
Uh-huh, that's right, of course.
Dim Manny to the rescue!
Go, Dim Manny!
Go, Dim Manny!

Dim Manny, who knows what he'll do?
He leave the Sox feeling kind of blue.
Dim Manny, he's the kind of guy
who might leave you asking, "Why, oh, why?"
Dim Manny to the rescue!
Go, Dim Manny!
Go, Dim Manny!

Dim Manny to the rescue!
Dim Manny to the rescue!
Dim Manny to the rescue!
Go, Dim Manny!
Go!

(mean saxophone break)

Dim Manny, if you would, now please
make it back-to-back after Oritz!
Dim Manny, he'll just make us whine!
Didn't make it to the park on time!
Dim Manny to the rescue!
Go, Dim Manny!
Go, Dim Manny!

Fans from Conn-ecticut to Maine
see him hit it high as a plane.
Dim Manny, he don't act so cute.
But he hits 'em, and far, to boot!
Dim Manny to the rescue!
Go, Dim Manny!
Go, Dim Manny!

Go, go, go, Dim Manny!
Go, go, go, Dim Manny!
Go, go, go, Dim Manny!
Go on, Dim Manny!

Dim Manny's gone!
Few of us can tell where. When will the Sox realize that the balance of hitting and clubhouse-hurting antics no longer works in their favor?

I don't follow your team, but from the point of structure and homage to the original, I'd have to say very nice job! (it is about 'curling', isn't it?)

I used to follow and like Manny when he played for the Cleveland Indians a few years back...but, I drifted away from B-ball and lost track of him....good job on this, tho'

No, TJC, you're getting your Sox mixed up. It was Pedro (the Punk) Martinez who had the Jheri curls.)
