The Lyrics

No, it's not about the Red Sox, disgusting (and, apparently, brilliant in some cases) though they may be. It's about the guy they let get away. To the Yankees. Now the Yanks have let him get away. Good riddance.
(instrumental opening)

I walked into the park
just watch you play.
What are those words whispered, A-Rod?
"He just ain't worth the pay?"

I saw you last night
out on the Bronx side of town.
I wanna read your mind to know
just what we've got in this new guy we've found.

Now, tell me what I see?
Is it a towering bust?
Is that you... A-Rod?
Or just a brilliant disgust?

I heard somebody call your name:
"You suck!" yelled guy in Boston.
I saw something tucked in shame:
All of the cash you're costin'.

Well, I try so hard, A-Rod
but I just can't see
why a choker like you
should be a Yankee.

So, tell me who I see?
Is it a guy I can't trust?
Is that you... A-Rod?
Or just a brilliant disgust?

Now, look at me, A-Rod
struggling to give you a fair chance!
And then it all falls apart
and the Red Sox, they dance!

You play a lonely pilgrim.
You walk this world in wealth.
I wanna know, is this you I don't trust?
Because of your mental health!

Now, you play the jilted suitor.
I play the faithful fan.
But just don't come too close.
Or you'll talk to the hand.

When I stood at the ballpark
I saw your 500th big fly.
But in the wee, wee hours
maybe, A-Rod
your agent lied.

So don't you look at me
and you can go eat my dust!
It was you... A-Rod
who gave me brilliant disgust!

Tonight our park is cold.
But you'll no longer get our love.
God have mercy on you, man
and on your bat and glove.

(instrumental fade)
The last two games I've seen at Yankee Stadium are his walkoff grand slam against Baltimore in April and his 500th home run game against Tampa Bay. And now, I never have to see the Great Sham-bino in Pinstripes again. I'd say "Thank God," but the person to thank is Scott Boras, his agent, and that's the opposite direction.

I still think you are being a little too hard on the AL MVP. But a lot of people in Southern California want him to come to one of the local teams, and I'm hoping it's not the Angels because he will definitely be overpriced and they can get 2 excellent players for the price of an A-Rod.

Hasn't Southern California gotten burned enough, John? It's "Most Vaulable Player," not "Most Outstanding Player," and he didn't deserve the two he got, let alone the one he's about to get. Maybe the double-whammy curse of Pay-Rod and Donnie Regular Season Baseball will be reunited in Chavez Ravine, where Joe Torre will wonder if he should have retired.

A-Rod is a talented shmuck, a footnote to the glorious sweep by the Sox.
