The Lyrics

Harry Harrison Frazee (1881-1929) was a theatrical producer, best known in that circle for "No, No, Nanette" in 1925. (The songs "Tea for Two" -- the song Johnny Carson tap-danced to when his monologues bombed -- and "I Want to Be Happy" came from that musical.) But he also owned the Boston Red Sox from 1916 to 1923, and sold Babe Ruth and several other players to the New York Yankees, ending the Red Sox dynasty of the 1910s and starting the Yankee dynasty of the 1920s. Frazee, through the myth of "The Curse of the Bambino," has been blamed for the downturn of the Red Sox and the crazy things that happened to them from 1920 to 2004. Maybe Sox fans should blame subsequent owners like the Yawkeys and John Harrington for THEIR screwups, instead of lumping it all on one guy who owned them for seven years.
(piano opening)

It's Frazee we're blaming for losing.
It's Frazee.
It's Frazee who turned Red Sox blue.

I know
we blame him for selling off Babe Ruth.
But someday
you'll see there's more to the truth.

Why bad trades made by Yawkey?
about mistakes players do?

Oh, Frazee
ain't Frazee who ever depressed you.
Ain't Frazee who's flingin'
or Frazee who's swingin'.
Ain't Frazee who makes you blue.

ain't Frazee who ever depressed you.
Ain't Frazee who's flingin'
or Frazee who's swingin'.
Ain't Frazee who makes you


(piano close)

Archie Bunker (Carroll O'Connor), on "All In the Family": "That don't mean nothin'!" Mike Stivic (Rob Reiner): "Archie, you can't use a double negative!" Archie: "Tell that to the guy who wrote 'No, No, Nanette!'"
