The Lyrics

Joe Paterno WAS a good coach, but this scandal will tarnish his life! Only Human...
1-No use pretending things could be all right...
I wish there was something to say.
I'll get along without finishing this year...
My ass hit the door along the way.

Chorus-Never gonna Coach Penn State Again!
Guess my reputation has been screwed!
I'll just have to take the pain,
Since I had in 2002.
Guess I'll have to take the pain,
Without reporting to Security.
I'll never coach another team again,
Even if they did pay me!

2-At first I thought it was just a first time...
Sandusky wasn't acting right.
But as the news leaked-out I knew that my...
Mornings became just lonely Nights.

Repeat Chorus

Instrumental Break with Joe Paterno speaking

Repeat Chorus until fade with Penn State Protesters.
