The Lyrics

Sometimes it's tough to write parodies. You wait for days for an idea to come to you. Even the news is no help. Then Rudy Giuliani, already a traitor to his supposedly beloved New York Yankees for allowing a new stadium to be built and the one and only Yankee Stadium to be torn down in a year, says he's going to root for the Boston Red Sox in this year's World Series. As if I needed another reason to think this guy was no good. I rooted for the Red Sox twice: In the 1986 World Series, because I hate the Mets that much, and we all know how THAT turned out; and in the 2004 World Series, when it seemed silly for them to finally get past the Yankees and then not win the whole thing. This time... GO ROCKIES! and GO AWAY RUDY! Please go to Boston and don't come back!
He would always say where he came from.
Yesterday. Don't matter. Now he's gone.
Once, we thought he's bright.
But now his weight is light.
No one knows
why this way goes.

Goodbye, Rudy Red Sox!
We can hang that name on you!
'Cause you gave us many dread shocks!
We'll never vote for you!

Don't question why he needs to cheer those guys.
He needs New Hampshire fans to buy his lies.
Issues he has changed
and others rearranged.
He'll find he's lost
at such a cost.

Goodbye, Rudy Red Sox!
We can hang that name on you!
'Cause you gave us many dread shocks!
We'll never vote for you!

"There's a guy who'll lose," you'll hear me say.
Kerry tried it, too, and lost that play.
Come election time
lose New York and you will lose your mind.
And you can kiss my hind!

Goodbye, Rudy Red Sox!
We can hang that name on you!
'Cause you gave us many dread shocks!
We'll never vote for you!

Goodbye, Rudy Red Sox!
We can hang that name on you!
'Cause you gave us many dread shocks!
We'll never vote for you!

This won't be up on the board until tomorrow morning, after Game 1, but the Rockies have already beaten Josh Beckett in Fenway in an interleague game this season. So... Rockies in 5. I never root for the American League Champions JUST because they're the AL Champions. Usually I root for whichever team deserves it more. Maybe the Red Sox fans who were old enough to remember 1946, 1949, 1967, 1975, 1978 and 1986, and weren't the drunken-bum college kids who glommed onto Pedro and Nomar in 1999 or 2003, deserved to win just once in their lifetime. Well, they got their just once. These punks not old enough to remember Bucky Dent as anything other than a New England profanity didn't deserve that one, and they wouldn't deserve this one, either. And the Patriots cheat.

13 to 1, so I don't think it helped. Go Sawks! But I'll concur on the Go Away Rudy. 555

If I had to take another Red Sox title OR a Rudy Reich, I'd say, softly and grumbling, "Go, Sox... " I'd rather face another year of drunken Chowdaheads too young to remember Mo Vaughn, let alone Bill Buckner, than face four additional years of fascism.

A fitting parody to be posted on the 21st anninversary of the wonderful day Bill Buckner missed Mookie's grounder. As for Rudi, he definitely dropped the ball, too. 555!

Why Mr. Pacholec, day of all days, whoda ever thunk that we would ever agree on a political issue. I like Rudy for what he did on 9/11 but this guy would be worse than (and I know you don't want to hear this) either Clinton combined in the White House. Nice work Michael. 5 runs 5 hits on no errors. Since there are no zeros in the voting dials I guess I'll give the third one a five as well.

Good parody, particularly the Kerry/hind verse. Except for the "lies" line. You might not like his message, but he is not lying.
