The Lyrics

And now for New York's real team. Pay no attention to my little brother Mikey, who likes the Yankees. And the Democrats.
It's Opening Day today at Shea.
I've been away so long.
And how I long to see them play.
It's Opening Day today at Shea.
I'm going back to find
the better kind of ball at Shea.

The Bronx is a great big payday.
Put a hundred down and buy a seat.
In a week, maybe two, you'll feel incomplete.
Weeks turn into years, how quick they pass.
But all the Mets I go to see
they're hitting shots and throwing gas.

It's Opening Day today at Shea.
They've got a lot of seats.
There'll be a place to sit today.
I was born and raised a fan at Shea.
I'm going back to find
the better kind of ball at Shea.

The game, its fortunes are for my Mets.
They can pull balls far away from home.
Pennant dreams in your heart, you're never alone.
Dreams turn into dust and blow away
But season soon will start again.
You pack your car and drive to Shea.

I've got lots of friends out there at Shea.
It's Opening Day today at Shea.
Can't wait to get back inside Shea.

Twenty-six to two, Bernard. Nineteen eighty-six. Two thousand. I figured I'd write the words out, because I know how numbers confuse you, being a Republican and all. Should I wake you up when September ends, and the Mutts' daycare-and-Medicare pitching staff has them 12 games back?

You're living in the past, Mikey. It's a Met Century.
