The Lyrics

Pedro Martinez is out for six weeks with a pulled hamstring? Couldn't happen to a better guy.
I'm pulling the string of ham.
Pulling the string of ham, I am.
I had to leave the game in inning of four.
Gave up home runs for a lousy score.
I've got another bad injury.
(Injury!)
And every Met fan's saying, "Oh, damn!"
(Oh, damn!)
It's another Pedro injury.
Pulling the string of ham!

Second hurt, bad as the first!

I'm pulling the string of ham.
Pulling the string of ham, I am.
Thought my shoulder would hold up some more.
Something I've hurt seven times before.
But here's another bad injury.
(Injury!)
And every Met fan's saying, "Oh, damn!"
(Oh, damn!)
It's another Pedro injury.
Pulling the string of ham!

(instrumental break)

I'm pulling the string of ham.
Pulling the string of ham, I am.
"Please stay healthy," Met fans do implore.
They know that I've let them down before.
But here's another bad injury.
(Injury!)
And every Met fan's saying, "Oh, damn!"
(Oh, damn!)
It's another Pedro injury.
Pulling the string of ham!

H! E! L! L!
Ow!
Injury!
(Injury!)
Injury!
(Injury!)
Pulling the string of ham, I am!
Pulling the string of ham!

Clever - yet pacing blunders spoil the fun somewhat...

555's Sir Michael, for the ham!

Very good substitutions, particularly the "injury/'enery" sub.
