The Lyrics

Super Bowl Sunday has never been so painful for me. When two of your very least favorite teams are have to make the hard choices.

Ben, most days I hate to see you score
In the past you won, and I just swore
Steelers always made me grown
My feelings were well known
But my words I will eat
When The Packers you beat
(The Packers you must beat)

Ben, I’ll overlook Troy’s flowing hair
Could be twenty feet for all I care
Long as he is never kind
Sacks Rodgers from behind
Then tells him where to go
I’ll cheer for him, you know
(I’ll cheer for him, you know)

Though Steelers make elves angry
Packers are worse to me

(A Pittsburgh fan? No, not me!
Hate The Pack, more you see)

Ben, I’ll be a fan for just one day
‘Til you make The Packers go away
‘Tween two evils I’ll choose you
It’s hard for me to do
And won’t happen again
But just once I’ll root for Ben
(I’ll root)
For Ben
(For Ben)
For Ben

Arwen - I'm still making up my mind about Sunday, but not about this clever parody. BTW - What's black, gold, AND green? Ben Roethlisbooger! ;D

Sung like 'butter'--and *even cuter* than the original 'pedophile-crooning-to-a-rat' version!

Thanks so much to both of you...I appreciate it!

What I don't appreciate, though, is my freaking stupidity sometimes. Grown vs. Groan??? Ugh. I clearly can't think straight when pretending to be a Steelers fan. I really wish we could edit our times like this. =(

Nice work, but I'm rooting for the cheese heads to pack some into the Steelers' rear.

I can understand rooting against the Steelers because of Big Ben's boorishness (to say the least), but what's wrong with the Packers? Besides Clay Matthews Jr.'s and A.J. Hawk's hair, that is. In case you've forgotten, My Princess, you live in Bronco territory, and their mistakes made the Broncos' first title possible. You should thank them for that.
