The Lyrics

No, not Robin's father. This is about the New York Jets' new quarterback. He's their old quarterback. Their very old quarterback.
There's an old man called Vin Testaverde.
That's an old man I don't like to be.
Jets think that he'll get them out of trouble.
He was born back in sixty-three.

Old man quivers.
The old man quivers.
He must know something
but has left nothing.
He just keeps creaking
he keeps on creaking along.

His legs are crumbling.
His mouth has cotton.
And how to play ball
he's long forgotten.
That old man quivers.
He keeps on creaking along.

You and me, we see him strain.
Body all aching and wracked with pain.
Tote that ball, throw that pass.
You meet defenders and you'll hit the grass.

He looks weary, so why's he trying?
The Jets are thinking he won't be dying!
The old man quivers!
He just keeps creaking... along!

Very good, MP. When are you doing the sequel,"Vinnie and the Jets"?

Considering that Vinny and the Jets lost 13-3 to the Baltimore Cravens today, I'd say... "Oh, but they're smeared, and they're blunderful..." Maybe it's time for the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets to stink it up enough to move to the top of the Matt Leinart sweepstakes.
