The Lyrics

Original Song:
Mama, I finally made the team
No more getting picked last for me
Mama, these guys are really neat
Do the best that I can for this here team

Mama, at the pep rally
Students going mad- see!
Mama, I think it’s funny
They go crazy for me

Mama, guys say I’m trusted
When they get exhausted
All my teammates say “You’re important, man!
Least you’re better than the band”

I tell you, mama
I finally made the team
Mama, I’m a part of the team
Mama, I’m loved ‘cause of the team
On the team, no one can discourage me

Mama, response is crazy
Help when they get hazy
Mama, when they are wheezin’
I step in to treat them

Mama, their throats are aching
And my heart is breaking
Mama, when I put that bottle in their hand
I’m a part of the game plan!

I tell you, mama
I finally made the team
Mama, tell dad I made the team
Mama, I work hard for the team
I’m the best waterboy they've ever seen
NOTE: I obviously don't agree with the "better than the band" comment. I believe that the marching band is the most important part of the football game haha

It's too bad this was an early 50s parody when what we needed was an early 60s parody BUT STILL this was really funny and it had a great twist ending so all around beautiful.
