The Lyrics

Ode to the Dreadlocked Dillweed. If you remember the original song, mostly seen in the "Last Waltz", each verse has a feel and pace of its own sung by different vocalists.
Went to the stadium, gonna see another Dodger game
Got some great players, some "were" headed to the Hall of Fame.
“Hey Manny can you tell me, is what they say is true?”
He just laughed and blew me off, and said, “I ain’t got no time for you.”

Take a month off Manny, take two months for free
Take a month off Manny, And (and) (and)
You can take your failed sampled pee.

Female fertility, is the drug of choice to mask the roids
Used between naughty shots, you used to fill in all the voids.
I said, “Joe Torre must be privy, he’s such a wise old man.”
Who the heck am I to say, I’m just the average stupid fan.

Take a month off Manny, take two months for free
Take a month off Manny, And (and) (and)
50 games your reality.

The Red Sox Nation, released your sorry childish ass
Landed in Hollyweird, still focused on your body mass.
High average did you hit for, few pitchers could match your cool
Now another proven cheater, another worthless-dreadlock fool.

Take a month off Manny, take two months for free
Take a month off Manny, And (and) (and)
Your career is now history.

A-Rod humility, till you come back July the 3rd
Lost some eight million, I see me giving you the bird.
Each homer has been tainted, like Bonds and the guilty Mac
You too will go hiding, far off on the beaten track.

Take a month off Manny, take two months for free
Take a month off Manny, And (and) (and)
Go and laugh in your misery.

Steroid civility, hormones at fifty bucks an hour
No longer heroes, no longer any home run power.
Come on back Cal Ripken, a player we can look up to
Won’t watch these meatheads, won’t buy a ticket how ‘bout you?

Take a month off Manny, take two months for free
Take a month off Manny, And (and) (and)
Need a friend, go see Big Papi.

Thanks Leo, Mark. Sorry Alvin! He's got so much dang talent but just needs a checkup from the neckup. Waaaay too much baggage, the saga's only just begun...

Jim - How appropriate that this is called "The Wait" since baseball bears a striking resemblance to organized loitering. And yeah, what we need are more role models like Cal Ripken and Hank Aaron. These guys didn't need substance enhancements. What kind of example do those like A-Rod Manny Ramirez, Barry Bonds and others set for our children? Honest to goodness heros have become an endangered species. I like the message in this parody. Well done!

Thanks Guy, this sport is indeed tainted like all the records. There's still 103 names of users that haven't been revealed yet.....someday.
