The Lyrics

If all had gone according to plan, tonight could have been Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Alas, the New Jersey Devils and the Detroit Red Wings -- not to mention the other 28 teams in the National Hockey League -- are not scheduled to play. The blame rests solely with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. Nobody put a gun to the team owners' heads and told them to pay a penny more than was necessary. The players are greedy, but by playing in Europe for half to one-tenth as much, they have the moral high ground.
Gary Bettman, well
he is such a big buffoon.
He can go to hell
he's a dutiful buffoon.

We could watch the Finals
but our game he did deny
and we just cry...
we just cry!

Cup has gone away
thanks to Gary Bettman
he's a big buffoon!

We could have filled the stands
if not for that big buffoon.
In the Meadowlands
if not for that big buffoon.

To Detroit, Vancouver, or St. Louis
we would fly.
But we just cry...
We just cry!

Cup has gone away
thanks to Gary Bettman
he's a big buffoon!

Suspended games, it's twilight for the league.
We'll search the law for a way to restore
the game we love, he's hurt with dumb intrigue.
He says they'll be back next year.
Too bad we had this wrecked year.

We could have watched the Leafs
if not for that big buffoon.
He's got legal briefs
and he's such a big buffoon.
Avalanche and Bruins battle for
Cup from that Stanley guy...
No, we just cry...
We just cry!

Cup has gone away
thanks to Gary Bettman
he's a big buffoon!


Cup has gone away!
