The Lyrics

In April 2007, Michael Vick was implicated in an extensive and unlawful interstate dogfighting ring that operated over a period of five years. In August 2007, he pleaded guilty to felony charges, and was indefinitely suspended from the NFL. He was sentenced to 23 months in federal prison, and began his incarceration in November 2007. With loss of his NFL salary and product endorsement deals, combined with previous financial mismanagement, Vick filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2008. Vick was released from prison to home confinement on May 20, 2009. Falcons owner Arthur Blank stated that he did not want Vick on the Falcons, and after attempts to trade him failed, Vick was released. On July 27, 2009, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally reinstated Vick, and will consider him for full reinstatement by Week 6 of the 2009 season at the latest, and possibly as soon as Week 1. But thanks to Donovan McNabb's renewed recruiting, this time lobbying Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and coach Andy Reid, Vick appears to have an ideal landing spot and mentor to help him relaunch his once-soaring football career after 18 months served in federal prison for bankrolling a dogfighting ring. The Philadelphia Eagles have thrown Michael Vick a "bone'!!!

Michael's prison span
Had proved that he's a loser,
Career should have faded fast.
Michael changed his home
To Philly, Pennsylvania,
For a second chance to pass.

Vick's back
Vick's back and all the dogs are gone.
Vick's back.
They're whacked
Reid(1) on crack cause that contract's wrong.

Vick's back, dogs know.

Vick's back.
Bite back.
Vick's back so hide the dogs till dawn.
Press acts
Reacts because that comeback's wrong.

Vick's back, you blow.

Now The Philly Eagles
Say it was a good deal
At least for Dog Fight fans.
All that money earning
Truth comes, it's just churning
On a cockfight hot dog stand.

Vick's back.
Go back and fix the things you've wronged.
Vick's back.
Get sacked.
Get sacked and pack your things belonged.

It's wacked, not better.

Vick's back.
Dog packs attack that big moron.
Turn back.
Go back and face the dogs you've wronged.

Take flak, you bettor.
You're bookie's placing for you
Swearing that pit bull's new
And a quick-neck biter.

Get smacked, from debtors,

Vick's back.
You're whacked.
You jacked our faith when you went wrong.

Vick's back.
Go back and take your bets along.

Dog-gone that was a good one. AFinally a parody with real bite.

As my friend LSUFreek just said, 'Hide your beagle; Vick's an Eagle!"

On the other hand, we all need redemption of some sorts. Just wish we could be as nicely reimbursed for our efforts.

I echo all comments above! Dogfighting rings are a very dumb act! Sounds to me like Vick's a real d**k!! I also don't have to read the sports page today! That cost Vick 555 years of his life!

Having Vick back in the NFL sux, but it isn't as bad as Teddy Kennedy spending decades in the Senate. At least Vick didn't kill any humans, and he did serve *some* prison time -- not defending him, of course, just saying that Ted's even worse. They'll meet in the pit (bull) of Hell, where Teddy can rot-while away time as a senator there. No justice on Earth, that's for sure.

Hope everyone boycotts all Eagles games this year -- SERIOUSLY. It's time to "just say No". 555 for your dog-gone fine doggerel dogging this dawg-sh*t excuse for a man.

II think it ridiculous that someone involved in dog fighting ring is still able to be re-considered for playing a major role in one of America’s top sports. He should consider himself lucky most normal people don’t get second chances like that.

Good news story parody. I remember when this happened back in the day because I thought it was terrible, but I would have loved to see an "All Dogs Go To Heaven" parody with Michael Vick on MAD TV. Sadly it never happened and that's why I need to start a skit show.

ABC (UV)- Nice job! I'm not a fan of the NFL but this is a really good job telling Vick off. 555 all the way

Topicality is always troublesome in a competition here. Well constructed here, though, with variations oin choruses and even picking up Paul's various ad libs.

Thanks, Agri! It was my only entry i had with 'V"'s

I respect your opinion, even if I disagree with it--I am strong believer that people make mistakes and once they pay their price to society they should be allowed to recover and get back on track. ..

Good opinion(and thanks), Dave! It just made for good "topical" parody...

I wrote one just like this but the dog ate it. I think this one has a bit of a bite to it. Dog gone - Vick's gone - Vick's back. And some people think a quarterback is a refund. Here's three Nickleback's 'cept they are not the original artists.

(ABC5) Well, I'm lost. Was this parody meant to be cheering that he's back, as what seems to be implied by the last sentence of the intro paragraph? Is it meant to be condemning him, as most of the comments seem to indicate? What's with all the dog jokes? Am I missing an inside joke here? Oh whatever. Sports parodies aren't my thing, neither are news parodies, so this one just doubles the not-my-thing-ness. Nothing wrong with the parody, it's still written well, pacing's tight...I just can't get into it due to the topic matter.

Barking out some thanks to Guy and to Bobpie(it was suppose to be condemning(he was running dog fights...)
