The Lyrics

The job of the general manager of a Major League Baseball team -- especially when it's the New York Yankees, the richest team in baseball -- is to do whatever you can, within the rules, to win the World Series. The current Yankee GM, Brian Cashman, seems to think his job is to sell tickets and stay under the luxury tax threshold. He's doing THAT job very well, but he's not doing his ACTUAL job well at all
One, two, three, four…
Three and two…

(Instrumental opening)

Let me tell you how it will be:
No ticker-tape for NYC.
‘Cause I’m the Cashman.
I’m Brian Cashman.

Should payroll seem to be too small
I’m not accountable at all.
‘Cause I’m the Cashman.
I’m Brian Cashman.

(If you want to win)
I won’t be bold.
(He loves young prospects)
And sluggers cold.
(All he cares about)
It’s what I’ve told:
(The rich men pay)
Their seats are sold.

Cashman!

(instrumental break)

What am I in this business for?
(Uh-uh, Hal Steinbrenner!)
The balance sheet’s my only score.
(Uh-uh, Lonnie Trost!)
‘Cause I’m the Cashman.
I’m Brian Cashman.

You’re so embarrassed, you could die.
(Cashman!)
This Yankee team will never rise.
(Cashman!)
‘Cause I’m the Cashman.
I’m Brian Cashman.

This is working for no one
but me.
(Cashman!)

(instrumental fadeout)
