The Lyrics

September 21, 1988:The night was clear and the moon was yellowand the leaves came tumblin' down
I was sittin' on the sofa and outside the dogs would bark
I was watchin' on the cable when the lights were turning dark
It was Wayne Gretsky of LA, traded from Edmonton
Wayne Gretsky won titles when the Oilers was with him

Wayne Gretsky chose LA, and had some clothes to pack
Traded for a lot of money on the hockey salary cap
Wayne Gretsky started off his journey on the LA track
He said, "I wish I can bring my Stanley Cup memories back."

On a Kings game at home, Wayne scored #44
Said, "I'm gonna break a record where I can score for more"
Wayne Gretsky slid through the ice and shot it through the goal
Ref said, "nobody move" as he's ready to go for more

Wayne Gretsky just shot it, oh he shot the puck shot so bad
Till the puck came through the net and shot it through the glass
(sfx: glass breaking)

He shoots... he misses. It's "Gretzky" with a Z, not with an S! Though some people who refuse to recognize that Gordie Howe is still the greatest player in hockey history think Gretzky wore an S on his chest.
