The Lyrics

An answer song. At the end of this year, that Boy from Boston is going to be so disappointed in his teams, he's going to wish he really was Invisible.
(instrumental opening)

Some folks think they get away
with some dirty tricks 'round the neighborhood.
Think it means that they've got some teams
that are really good.
But I'm taking the subway
on the Lexington Av'nue line.

Because now New York wins this time.

I've seen all the low cheap shots
that the Patriots use on other teams.
These guys really shlocky
they're such drama queens.
And I know what they're needing.
And the Giants are in their prime.

Because now New York wins this time.

"It was so easy, they'll go all the way.
Won't be touched by the Pinstripes and Blues."
But I will read good headlines on Monday:
See Eli's smile in the Daily News.

It comes down to reality
and that's fine with me, 'cause it's on my side!
The D Train to one-sixty-one
or to Riverside!
I've got plenty of reasons.
Sox fans kiss my behind!

Because now New York wins this time!
Whoa, yeah!

(saxophone break)

It was so easy, that curse took the cake.
'Til it was took right off of my hands.
But now the titles, back here, we will take.
To Newark, Bronx...
The Meadowlands.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa...

It comes down to reality
with tradition, glory, and the pride.
The Canyon of Heroes
up Broadway we'll ride.
For New England, the bell tolls.
For New York, and New Jersey, chimes.

Because now New York wins this time!

So go take the Greyhound
up the I-84 incline!

Because now...

Beecause now New York...

wins this...

Yeah, yeah!

(instrumental close)

Michael...I can't thank you enough for your retort. I won't cheat you out of the 5s you deserve. I'm serious...we should watch the game together. You could take the Feng Wah from Chinatown...I'll pick you up at South Station...we'll go over to the North End for some pasta and gravy...then a quick drive up to NH...a stop at the state liquor store...then on to my castle where I am king. Oh yeah...before you say yes, I have to ask my wife if it's OK.

It may be a longshot but I'm hoping for one more upset as well, 555 yards touchdown.
