The Lyrics

A "white elephant" is something that costs a lot but doesn't bring the desired results, a huge waste of money. For example, Alex Rodriguez, the A of Rod, the Great Sham-bino. "The turtleneck" is George Steinbrenner, who so often wears one, and "Mad Dog" is Sportsradio 66 WFAN's Chris Russo, Yankee-hater extraordinaire.
One team's payroll's larger
and one team's payroll's small
and the ones that A-Rod plays for
don't go anywhere at all.
Go ask Alex... feeling two feet small!

And if you go chasing habits
that are so bad after all
like Giambi who once had muscles
and now he can't hit the ball
go ask Alex... to answer the call.

When the men on the bases
are stranded and they can't go
and you just had some kind of beverage
and the taps cut off their flow
go ask Alex... the Sham-bino!

When Giambi makes excuses
and Brown's hand is bathed in red
and this white knight's swinging backwards
and the turtleneck shakes his head
remember... what the Mad Dog said:
"Yanks are dead!"
"Yanks are dead!"
I originally wanted to rewrite this as "Hate Hobbit," but I figured I'd never get good ratings from some of you again.

Pinin' for the F[j]ords, hopin' they'll wear the Mantle again some day. . . .

Russo and all of the other Yankee critics are ruthless. MP, you are being very hard on A-Rod. Would you rather have A-Boone back?

Very good...while I agree the Yanks aren't dead, they sure are code blue for this year at least

funny ass parody and i couldn't agree more with the sentiment...i think arod's new title should be "the sultan of swat" as in swatting the ball (and glove) out of a player's hand...5s

Johnny D: I have no idea what that means. It sounds like a takeoff on "Riders On the Storm." John B: For the moment, they don't got Jack, son. John J: Yes I would! Hell, Ray Boone died last week, and he still could've hit better in the ALCS than Pay-Rod! Alvin: Not bad, but A-Rod is more like the Insultin' of Swat.
