The Lyrics

As a fan of the New York Yankees, I make a lot of jokes about the New York Mets, including a few parodies, ranging from "Flushing Pie" and "Flushing Meadow Blues" to "M-E-T-S" and "Rooting For Mets Is Dumb." But this... I can't even say this could ONLY happen to the Mets, because it happened to the Milwaukee Brewers two years ago. But this sort of thing would NEVER happen to the Yankees (unless you count the midge problem in Cleveland two years ago). I swear, I am not making this up: http://deadspin.com/5306275/the-new-york-mets-have-a-furry-run+in-on-road-trip
(instrumental opening)

Oh, I can see, this hotel ain't for me.
It's bad enough we've got so much of injury.
It seems I must infer, what in this place occurs.
We've got some guys in fur.
There's lots of Furry 'round me.

I'll be blue, and I'll be orange, too.
But, girl, I think these Furries have left loose a screw.
They're dressed like animals, I think their minds are dull.
It's really horrible.
There's lots of Furry 'round me.

I'll be strong, I'll try to carry on
although you know my sanity will soon be gone.
I'll always think of you, the fans back home we knew.
Just don't wear fur of blue.
There's lots of Furry 'round me!
Ewwww... baby!

(instrumental break)

(Furry 'round me!)
Furry guy? Would you please say goodbye?
My ERA and blood pressure are getting high!
You wear animal clothes, you should get rid of those.
That's what we all propose!
There's lots of Furry 'round me!

I hate you, think you're a "furvert," too.
Explains why we've been losing and these games we blew.
So won't you say goodbye, animal costume guy?
I think I'm gonna cry.
There's lots of Furry 'round me!

I'll be strong, I'll try to carry on
although you know my sanity will soon be gone.
I'll always think of you, the fans back home we knew.
Just don't wear fur of blue.
There's lots of Furry 'round me!

I'll be strong, I'll try to carry on
although you know my sanity will soon be gone.
I'll always think of you, the fans back home we knew.
Just don't wear fur of blue.
There's lots of Furry 'round me!

I-I-I-I'll be strooooong...
(fadeout)

It looks like this is the first parody of this 1966 Frankie & the Boys classic on Amiright. That's what it took to get this song here: The Mets and Furries. Two truly demented groups of people.

Very well done. I have been away from amiright for a while, but came back yesterday with 3 new parodies. Please go check them out and let me know what you think. During the time I have been away I have become an honest to goodness songwriter in collaboration with a singer/songwriter of over 30 years experience. I write the lyrics, he does the rest. If you get a chance, please follow the link to his music page. Look for any song that has the pen name of Renee Hartman beside it. And keep those parodies coming...
