The Lyrics

major deal
i trade fields
i'm on trial
third base is my position
i must join with these guys
i've been rented
to finish off the season

from toronto's super-dome
to ol' pittsburgh's urban zone
traded to the control
traded to the pirates...bless my soul

traded to the pirates
they could not be lamer
traded to the pirates ?
i'm a hall-of-famer
na na na na
na na na na

well, i know
i've been sold
but i'm told two different versions
for me, they got he
but how much gold has never been certain

though a trade, i can't condone
they insist its just a loan
traded to the pirates...not my goal
traded to the pirates...what a hole

traded to the pirates
they could not be lamer
traded to the pirates ?
i'm a hall-of-famer
na na na na
na na na na

traded to the Pirates? Aaarrrggghhhh, Matey! 'tis a cruel, wicked, accursed fate you'd be givin' me here, laddie...5 x 3 lashes with a tattered 1960 Pirates World Series Pennant, and you'll forever dwell among the ghosts...Don Hoak (3b for '60 Pirates), Dickie Groat, Frank Thomas & Billy Virdon and of course, the great Clemente, and ye will see Bill Mazeroski leapin' to the sky roundin' 3rd base but never quite make it to Home plate - forever, ye Law(Verne) will acquit ye, nor Friend(Bob) will ye have...'stead ye will dwell in the cellar of the dank National League Central for all time. And when ye shall raise up a promising young mate from Triple A he'll disappear before your very eyes and his shadow will plague ye as ye watch another such as yerself bobble and kick grounder, misjudge ye pop flies and fail to bunt or strikeout, leaving ye mates marooned forever on the bases, never to score at all...Even Smokey Burgess will fail ye in the clutch...

Alvin - Yeah, For some reason at that time of my tender young life I seem to have filled most of the space that was available in my head with Baseball statistics and trivia. And huge portions of it still remain ingrained in my memory all these many eons later. But, hey, it seemed like a good idea at the time. Current stuff? Naw...maybe If I think REAL hard I might be able to tell you which teams were even in the World Series this last year, but not too many of the players involved. Fortunately for me there was enough capacity to turn almost everything that entered my mind after I was about 18 into pornographic references (I call it " A pornographic memory" - Definition: Being able to remember everything AND automatically turn it into smut/filth. This is really only partially true, my memory is not quite as sharp anymore).

If you're a Hall-of-Famer, the Pirates won't spend what it takes to pay you. Ask Barry Bonds.
