The Lyrics

For those of you who don't live in the New York area, both Shea Stadium, home of the Mets, and Yankee Stadium, home of that other team ;-), are going to be torn down after this season and replaced with brand spankin' new stadiums. I'll leave the Yankee Stadium tributes to Mr. Pacholek and others, but here's a Shea Stadium highlight reel, the good, the bad, and the ridiculous...
Here come ol'e Bill Shea
He make baseball swamp home
Filled with lousy players
Hired Casey Stengel
They lost way too many games
Stuck with Marv Thronberry and some more washed-up names

World series shoeshine,
Seaver fast-tossed baseball
Can't beat Rollie Fingers
but stunned Earlie Weaver
We said, "worst to first, can it be?"
One thing that Tug taught us is "you've got to believe!"

Playin' baseball
'Till now
Here at Shea

Mex run production
He the Straw that's stirring
We got Carter catching
Nails: one firecracker
Buckner: ball down below his knees
Jumped out of our armchairs, screams were heard throughout Queens

Playin' baseball
'Till now
Here at Shea

Team roller coaster
A late season breakdown
They got muddy outfield
Many injured players
West coast: Randolph gone at half past three
Mets are now good looking but they need some relief

Playin' baseball
'Till now
Here at Shea

Parody by Mason "stairway to the upper deck" Resnick

Hey, this is great! Very nicely put together! I live nowhere near NY (in fact, I'm at the other end of the country, on the West Coast), but I have heard about this...and I do check out sports from time to time. Anyway, perfect score. :)

Thanks John, Serafina and alvin. I was at the game Tues night (Mets 10, Nats 8) sitting in the upper deck and thinking, geez, this time next year, about 200 feet below me it'll be a parking lot. Citi Field looks nice, too bad I won't be able to afford it.

Old-time Ball Parks are the best . . . except at Candlestick . . .

Oh, my God. This may be the best Met-themed parody ever -- and I've written a few. And guess what: "Come Together" was released the same month the Mets won the World Series, October 1969. Of course, now, there's the Curse of Kevin Mitchell. And as I write this, the Cubs may finally be getting some revenge, knocking Pedro the Punk around a little bit. Choke... choke... choke... At this rate, the City won't have to tear Shea down: Met fans may do it for them in their anger over these bums!

Loved this one, even though I'm a bit late getting to it. 5-5-5. :) Michael P: great point about October of '69! I never even noticed that until now. So it was probably appropriate that this OS was chosen.
