"The City of Fails"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This song refers to Cleveland's sports teams, which, as of this posting, haven't produced a major professional sports championship since 1964, and have had numerous heartbreaks over the years, adding insult to injury.
You never do anything right
Whenever you flip a coin, it's always tails
No wonder everyone calls you
The City of Fails

Your teams are so up-and-down
In history books, they'll never prevail
All fans are bound to call you
The City of Fails

And in the path to misfortune
You've blazed a brand-new kind of trail
We'd like to christen you Cleveland,
The City of Fails
