The Lyrics

Is it injuries or questionable trades and draft choices that have made Coach Bob Hill’s Seattle SuperSonics basketball team one of the favorite opponents in the NBA’s Western Conference?
SuperSonics are the cure for NBA frustration.
Being in their conference is cause for celebration,
When we play Seattle, we find total relaxation,
SuperSonics are the cure for NBA frustration.

Sonics don’t triple double, can’t count that high,
Sonics don’t triple double, can’t count that high.

My hoops team could not make a shot,
Teamwork was abysmal.
Though we hoped for a playoff spot,
The outlook was dismal.

Against the Suns, we got baked,
Kings owned us like chattel,
But the schedule contained a break:
Next up was Seattle!

SuperSonics are the cure for NBA frustration.
Half the team is hurt and having major operations,
And those who play seem to have unending constipation.
SuperSonics are the cure for NBA frustration.

Most Sonics double dribble, some dribble right.
Most Sonics double dribble, some dribble right.

So though we don’t score very much
Against teams that are good,
In Seattle, we find our touch
And score just like Wilt would.

Yes, Wilt was amazing becuz
In his northwest battles
Both on and off the court, he was
Sleepless in Seattle!

Superstars of basketball are known for their flirtations,
And they take their time outs all across this love-starved nation.
If they’re found on Fathers’ Day, it’s quite a revelation.
Superstars of basketball are known for their flirtations.

Use con-dums when you diddle diddle on the sly.
Use con-dums when you diddle diddle on the sly.

The Sonics have no self-esteem.
They lack both youth and skill,
And when the coach talks to his team,
They’re all way o’er the Hill.

And though the weather can get bad
And make fans mope and pout,
The coaching staff is very sad:
Their games don’t get rained out.

SuperSonics are the cure for NBA frustration.
When your team’s in a losing streak, they will bring salvation.
They don’t take playoff spots, they take early spring vacations,
SuperSonics are the cure for NBA frustration!

dead on pacing done to an obviously tough song

apart from following the Seattle Suns when I spent a month in Washington once, I know nothing of US basketball, but I like to read your stuff JJ because of its quality pacing and this was no exception - 555

I think that a lot of v/c from 2007 and earlier were lost in a software glitch on the site, sometimes almost randomly. Some of my own earlier songs have no, or one or two, v/c, despite multi-hundred page views, while others seem to have kept most or all of their v/c.

Nonetheless, I'm taking John at his word that no one ever caught the play on "score like Wilt", as this pea-brain remembers well WC's claim of having been with 20,000 women -- especially when it was backed up a few lines later with the wonderful play on the movie title,
"Both on and off the court, he was / Sleepless in Seattle!" --
and then reinforced again with the brilliant condom-diddle sub for the um-diddle. Jule Andrews would be horrified! ;-D

Not being a follower of basketball, this couldn't be as fully appreciated as possible, but what's there is self-evidently excellent. Only quibble would be some minor pacing and stress issues:

"Abysmal" stressing on "a" and "mal", and "dismal" stressing on "-mal" -- clue the reader with what Stu McArthur calls a "nudge-wink" -- say, a hyphen:. "dis-mal". And a few others, which the parody author can review at his leisure; no need to list them.

"Against the Suns, we got baked," is one syl short of 8-6 verse scheme. Overall, about a 4.5 on pacing, which isn't an option, but the overall ingenuity, especially the entire eight-line verse on Wilt, the clever rhyme of "chattel" for Seattle, and the ref to Father's Day, reminiscent of a Politically Incorrect joke that can't be told here, cause that to be rounded up instead of down. 555, and thanks for pointing me here, John.

To clarify: Kris R. and Red Ant taught the n00b turtle (who never saw the movie) that although all lines are 14 syl, the refrains are in trochees (they didn't use that word), whereas the 8-6 verses are in iambs (ditto). In English: Refrain: X-x-X-x-X-x, etc., vs. stanza: x-X-x-X-x-X etc., starting on an unstressed and ending on a stressed.

and NOW me GIRL'S me WIFE (from memory on the lyrics). -- there's the difference. Cheers.
