The Lyrics

Ladies and gentlemen, would you please rise? Certainly, the Mets couldn't rise to the occasion!
Jose, can you hit?
'Cause your bat seems so light.
Glove so proudly we hailed.
Now through it, grounders streaming.

David Wright, you bright star
blew the perilous fight.
Bullpen, bad part we watched
left us gallantly screaming.

Paul Lo Duca's dread glare.
Planes are fouling the air.
Save-proof, Bill Wagner
and the Pennant's not there.

Oh, say, does that star-mangled
ballclub yet waive?
Tommy Glavine, you're set free!
Go on back...
to the...
Braves!
