The Lyrics

In 1959, Rick Nelson recorded this song, and Hank Aaron won the National League batting title. Last night, I paid tribute to Hank and his record of 755 career home runs: I slept through Barry Bonds' 756th homer, which sets no record I will ever recognize.
(instrumental opening)

It's fake!
(It's fake!)
The seven-fifty-six!
It's fake!
(It's fake!)
He used dirty tricks!
It's bad!
(It's bad!)
It's a shameful time!
Steroids!
(Steroids!)
It means he's nothing but slime!

It's fake!
(It's fake!)
Gives off a toxic gas!
It's fake!
(It's fake!)
He don't have any class!
Not speed!
(Not speed!)
He's in the steroid zone!
Baby, Hank's still tops, and could never be wrong!

If he could've stayed clean in 1999
he would've had six hundred homers, that's fine!
But he got jealous back in '98.
Has he seen Mark McGwire's fate?

Look up!
(Look up!)
Is that a goon we see?
Can't be
(can't be)
a hero to you or me!
It's fake!
(It's fake!)
I used to like his Dad!
Too bad!
(Too bad!)
The son's now making us mad!

It's fake!
(It's fake!)
It's a sad, sad song!
It's fake!
(It's fake!)
It's gone on too long!

(instrumental break)

It's fake!
(It's fake!)
Gives off a toxic gas!
It's fake!
(It's fake!)
He don't have any class!
Not speed!
(Not speed!)
He's in the steroid zone!
Baby, Hank's still tops, and could never be wrong!

If he could've stayed clean in 1999
he would've had six hundred homers, that's fine!
But he got jealous back in '98.
Has he seen Mark McGwire's fate?

Look up!
(Look up!)
Is that a goon we see?
Can't be
(can't be)
a hero to you or me!
It's fake!
(It's fake!)
I used to like his Dad!
Too bad!
(Too bad!)
The son's now making us mad!

It's fake!
(It's fake!)
It's a sad, sad song!
It's fake!
(It's fake!)
It's gone on too long!
(It's fake!)

Did anybody notice... Just a couple of rows in front of the guy whose hand the 756 ball bounced off, was a guy wearing a Yankee road jersey? Number 13. Alex Rodriguez. Foreshadowing, perhaps? And the guy who ended up with the ball... was wearing a Mets T-shirt.

The best thing about that night was the gracious video tribute from Hank. A class act, unlike BB. Grand jury's still grinding.

Good parody, you should write the parody about the fans who booed Mariano Rivera.

No 'roids needed to hit this 555. Well said.

I agree that Barry Bonds has little or no class, but the record has to be recognized for two reasons. First, it has not been proven that he broke rules. Second, rule breaking is part of baseball (as Gaylord Perry and a lot of other pitchers could attest).
