The Lyrics

William Tong already has one with this title, but this is on a completely different subject. Not that I object to his version. The Zombies also replace Warren Zevon (may he now sleep peacefully) as last in the alphabet among the acts I've parodied. ABC (the guys who did "When Smokey Sings") are still first, mainly because I hate ABBA, though I'm open to a Lee Aaron song (not to mention to her... WOW...)
It's the crime of the season
your blood count's high.
With this crime, won't let off easy.
Suspension's what this crime commands.

We warned you about steroids!
(Barry Bonds)
Giambi is a bum!
It's the crime of the season
committing...

What's your name?
(What's your name?)
It's now muddy.
(It's now muddy.)
(You switched)
You switched to a cheat.
Have you taken
(Have you taken)
any time
(any time)
(to show)
to show what you can do when clean?

Now you're moving slowly!
(Lost your hair!)
And now you have to go!
It's the crime of the season
committing...

(organ break)

What's your name?
(What's your name?)
It's now muddy.
(It's now muddy.)
(You switched)
You switched to a cheat.
Have you taken
(Have you taken)
any time
(any time)
(to show)
to show what you can do when clean?

Now you're moving slowly!
(Lost your hair!)
And now you have to go!
It's the crime of the season
committing...

(organ playout)

I take it the people you mentioned have been guilty of taking performance enhancement drugs or just plain drugs and have been convicted. Pretty serious problem drugs, and young people watching their favorite athletes do drugs does not help the situation. I'll not call your song a parody because it does not make me laugh. It seems to be well written and has angered me. 5, 5, 5.

Well, atleast we agree baseball is a sport. I realise the song is kinda too short to get digs in at McGuire and BALCO as well. 555. PS- Kim, they don't always have to make you laugh. In fact, very few OS make me laugh hysterically.

I prefer performance-enhancing tugs.

I will have to do one about Mark McGwire, though I don't expect the odd spelling of his name (a W where a U usually is) to be part of it. On the day he hit Number 62, September 8, 1998, I threw a bunch of sluggers into a song and produced "We Didn't Start With McGwire," which I've never posted here. I may have to rewrite it considering all that's happened in the last six years and change.

I'm a little late to say so, but a good parody, Michael.

Performance-enhancing tugs, Johnny? As longshoremen go...
