The Lyrics

There's a reason why some of these occasionally, briefly revived old uniforms -- call 'em Throwbacks, Turn Back the Clocks, Hardwood Classics or Heritage Classics -- stopped being regularly worn.
(instrumental opening)

(fans)
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back
no more, no more, no more, no more!
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back no more!

(team publicity director)
What you say?

(fans)
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back
no more, no more, no more, no more!
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back no more!

(team publicity director)
Well, people, well people
I don't know what you mean.
They're the prettiest jerseys
that I've ever seen.
I guess, if you say so
I'll have to pack 'em up to go.

(fans)
That's right!
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back
no more, no more, no more, no more!
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back no more!

(team publicity director)
What you SAYYYYY?

(fans)
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back
no more, no more, no more, no more!
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back no more!

(team publicity director)
Now, baby, listen, baby
doncha treat 'em this way.
We wore 'em, won the title
way back in the day.

(fans)
Don't care if we did
'cause it's understood
you're just tryin' to make money
with some togs that's no good.

(team publicity director)
Well, I guess, if you say so
I'll have to pack 'em up to go.

(fans)
That's right!
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back
no more, no more, no more, no more!
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back no more!

(team publicity director)
What you SAYYYYY?

(fans)
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back
no more, no more, no more, no more!
Lose the Throwbacks
and don't bring them back no more!

Well...

And don't bring them back no more!

Uh, what'd you say?

And don't bring them back no more!

I didn't understand you!

And don't bring them back no more!

Oh, now, people, PLEASE!

And don't bring them back no more!

What you tryin' to do to me?

And don't bring them back no more!
(repeat 'til fade)
The Houston Astros' rainbow jerseys... the Chicago Cubs' powder blues with WHITE pinstripes... the Cleveland Indians' "blood clot" jerseys... the Philadelphia Eagles' white helmets with green wings... the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' orange "creamsicle" jerseys... the Cleveland Cavaliers' rust and goldenrod... the New York Rangers' shield jerseys... the Philadelphia Flyers' long black pants... the Vancouver Canucks' stick logo... the Quebec Nordiques' stick-and-goal logo... the California Golden Seals' lemon-yellow jerseys... and that was just in the 1970s! Most of them didn't last too long, but one game was long enough!
