The Lyrics

Another Yanks-Sox series coming up. I can't believe nobody thought of this one before.
They say they're tough, they got Pedro
they'll win games in the month that starts with "O."

Well, I don't know if all that's true.
'Cause there's a Curse that turns the Red Sox blue.

We got Ruth, Babe.
We got Ruth, Babe.

They say that's all back in the past.
A brand-new team, they've got a brand-new cast.

I guess that's so, in 2004.
But it's been said so many times before.

We got Ruth, Babe.
We got Ruth, Babe.

We raise Pennants in the spring.
Every year, we get a ring.

Sox fans are sad, they're such clowns.
They should be scared, the Curse is around.

So let 'em say they're much more strong.
I don't care, they're always proven wrong.

So put your little hand in glove.
There's a big reason why the Yanks we love.

We got Ruth, Babe.
We got Ruth, Babe.

We got Ruth, his Curse in hand.
We got Ruth, you understand.
We got Ruth to walk with us.
We got Ruth, you'll balk to us.
We got Ruth, we'll win tonight.
We got Ruth, we feel all right.
We got Ruth, he won't let go.
We got Ruth, who needs Pedro?

We got... Ruth, Babe.

We got Ruth, Babe.
We got Ruth, Babe.
We got Ruth, Babe.
We got Ruth, Babe.
(repeat 'til fade... as the Sox always do)

Maybe the reason that nobody conceived this parody before is that not everybody else is quite as obsessed about the Curse. But, well done Michael, your second 400 is off to a good start.

Need I remind you which team the Babe finished his career with, and in which city he played in? Besides, he was a washed-up pitcher who only won what, 10 games in a Yankee uniform? We were right to let him go, I think he blew out his arm or something hitting those "Home Runs" and striking out twice every three at bats.

Yeah, you were right to let him go, what with those four World Series he helped the Yankees win and the greatest tradition in sports history that he started. Nineteen eighteen...

The Yankees suck... the life out of the Red Sox every friggin' time! Big Bronx cheer to you, LOSERS!

The 1927 Yankees were great, but not as great as the 1976 Cincinnati Reds.

And who starts the first game of a '27 Yanks vs. '76 Reds series, Tim? Who ya got against Hoyt, Pennock, Shawkey, Shocker, Pipgras? Don Gullett? Jack Billingham? Please.

Gary Nolan and Fred Norman are also good starters. As far as relievers are concerned, Will Mcenany and Rawly Eastwick did the job well.

I'm not much of a baseball fan anymore (until playoffs/W Series!) Btw, Michael, I thought this was good, the ones weren't mine. If I don't like something, I just don't vote at all (or comment). And kudos again to you for the brilliant piece you did on the Kennedys.

This parody, true-to-life when posted, is now invalid.

It is a pretty good parody, I can admit that even if I am a wicked big Red Sox fan, but just one question? WHAT CURSE?!?!?! The Curse has been Reversed!!!! Who's your Daddy now?!!?
