The Lyrics

Let's play "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire"! For $100: Which "Star Wars" quote or near-quote best describes the Yankee-Red Sox rivalry? Is it A. "Remember: The Curse will be with you. Always." B. "Who is more foolish: The fool, or the fool who follows him?" C. "I've got a bad feeling about this!" Or D. "Pedro... I... am your father!" Oh yeah: Michael Francesa (Yankee fan) and Christopher Russo (Yankee hater) host "Mike and the Mad Dog" on WFAN, AM 660, from 1 to 6:30. They have previously been the subject of my "WOLD" parody "WFAN," and were mentioned in my "Like a Rolling Stone" parody "The New York Jets," which now seems to be WAY out of date.
Well, we busted up the Sox.
Had to put away all them fools.
We learned more from a three-hour ballgame, baby
than we ever learned in school.
Tonight I hear the Bleacher fans' profane sound.
I can see the Louisville Sluggers pound.
You say you're tired of Sox fans talking smack
and you'll beat all their dreams down.

Well, we made a promise:
"It ain't over 'til it's over!"
No defeat, baby, this October!
Ballplayers on a summer's night
bringing reality from hope!
No defeat, baby, this October!

Well, Red Sox players' hair grows long
and they play the same old tired song.
We swore, Pinstripers always win.
Now I'm ready to parade again.
And I hear the Bambino's voice calling us home
here in this old ballyard.
And we will defend this place of our own
with these well-paid tough All-Stars.

'Cause we made a promise:
"It ain't over 'til it's over!"
No defeat, baby, this October!
Ballplayers on an autumn night
bringing reality from hope!
No defeat, baby, this October!

(instrumental break)

Now, in Boston, tonight, the fans grow dim.
The Wall in their left field's closing in.
There's a war inside still raging.
They say it ain't ours anymore to win.
But they will sleep with all the fish again
like we've always said
with their wide-open mouths getting slammed shut
'til they get it through their heads:

Well, we made a promise:
"It ain't over 'til it's over!"
No defeat, baby, this October!
Call "Mad Dog" on a winter's night
tell that Yankee-hating dope:
No defeat, baby, this October!
No defeat, baby, this October!
NINE-teen-EIGHT-teen! (clap, clap, clap-clap-clap)

I was there last year, right above where Aaron Boone's shot landed. I'll be there tonight for game 1. Who's your daddy? Lets go Yankees!

My mother taught me to never talk with my mouth full. Fortunately, one can type, and still have a mouth full of crow and humble pie.
