The Lyrics

About a week ago I did "Better Run From Mutombo" Whereupon, a Mike Pacholek comment suggested a Side B, when he called Mutombo "The Old Man Down The Road" Took me a week to get the reference, but better late than never
He bring the shot block from The Congo
He stop the hook shot from the sky
He make the the Kenyon see futility*
He make the Jersey rooters cry

You got to hide-y hide
Forget the jump and gun
You got to hidey hidey hide
The old man is on the court

He got the arms as long as pythons
He wag the finger taunting-ly
He got the elbow covered in nosebreak blood**
Dont fight him in the key

Forget your pride-y pride
Dont try the jump and gun
Forget your pridey pridey pride
The old man is on the court

He make the ref'ree call for travel
He make the Four Man go insane
Kick the rebound out to three line
When the old man in the lane

He got the stride-y stride
He block you if you gun
He got the stridey stridey stride
The old man is on the Court
*Kenyan Martin .. Most of the references are from one remarkable game Dik had against New Jersey, when he blocked ten shots at age 37 ..... **Mutombo busted a few nose with his elbows, as opponents would try to take advantage of his bad hands by trying to steal his rebound out of his hands
