The Lyrics

NINE-teen-EIGHT-teen (clap, clap, clap-clap-clap) (repeat 'til fade)
In nineteen eighteen, we won a little crown
and all over New England painted every little town.
We ate a lot o' porterhouse and drank a lot o' booze
then we sold the Great Bambino and eternally will lose.

We fired our star and the Yankees kept a-comin'.
There wasn't quite the winning that there was a while ago.
We signed free agents but the Yankees kept a-runnin'
off to the World Series and they made a lot o' dough.

We looked out to Logan and we see the Yankees comin'.
There musta been a hundred fans on that plane ride a-bummin'.
They talked so arrogant, they're flashing all their rings.
We stood beside the Green Monster and didn't say a thing.

We fired our star and the Yankees kept a-comin'.
There wasn't quite the winning that there was a while ago.
We signed free agents but the Yankees kept a-runnin'
off to the World Series and they made a lot o' dough.

Ted Williams said we could take 'em by surprise
if on each and every pitch they threw, we really had good eyes.
But Whitey Ford just popped him up, he didn't look real swell.
And Guidry looked on out at Yaz, and really gave him... well...

We... fired our star and the Yankees kept a-comin'.
There wasn't quite the winning that there was a while ago.
We signed free agents but the Yankees kept a-runnin'
off to the World Series and they made a lot o' dough.

Yeah, they got our Hoyt and Ruffing and they got our Sparky Lyle
and The Bronx to win a ring is where the Rocket and Boggs go.
They ride those floats through the ticker-tape on Broadway
because they won the Series and they made a lot of dough.

We fired every manager whose strategy went down
and we couldn't hit the Gator or that greedy Clemens clown.
We pinned our hopes on Pedro, but they powdered his behind
and when the umpire blew the calls, our fans just lost their minds!

We fired our star and the Yankees kept a-comin'.
There wasn't quite the winning that there was a while ago.
We signed free agents but the Yankees kept a-runnin'
off to the World Series and they made a lot o' dough.

Yeah, they got our Hoyt and Ruffing and they got our Sparky Lyle
and The Bronx to win a ring is where the Rocket and Boggs go.
They ride those floats through the ticker-tape on Broadway
because they won the Series and they made a lot of dough.

Outstanding parody, Michael. I think that Static might be right that this might be the year the curse is broken, but I'm not sure what his point is about the Knicks. Even though it has been 30 years since they won the NBA championship, it has been 85 years since the Red Sox won a World Series
