The Lyrics

Throughout history, there have been many songs written about disappointing baseball players. This next one concerns the disastrous 2007 New York Mets, and the pitcher who was supposed to save them in their regular-season finale, Tom Glavine. If Met fans had their way, tomorrow, Tom Glavine would hang.
Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine.
Hang down your head and cry.
Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine.
Get on a plane and fly.

We met him in Atlanta.
Stood there on the mound.
Kept the Mets from winning.
Heard our booing sound.

Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine.
Hang down your head and cry.
(Poor boy, oh-well-a)
Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine.
Get on a plane and fly.

Hired him as mound ace.
Reckon, he won't be.
Now we cry on Long Island
on out to New Jersey!

(Oh, well, well, now!)
Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine.
(Hang down your head and cry!)
Hang down your head and cry.
(Hang down your head and cry!)
(Poor boy, oh-well-a)
Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine.
(Hang down your head and cry!)
Get on a plane and fly.

This time tomorrow
reckon where he'll be?
His pitching has completed
the worst collapse in history!

(Oh, well, well, now!)
Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine!
Hang down your head and cry!
(Poor boy, oh-well-a)
Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine!
(Hang down your head and cry!)
Get on a plane and fly!

(Oh, well, well, now!)
Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine!
Hang down your head and cry!
(Poor boy, oh-well-a)
Hang down your head, Tom... Glavine!
(Hang down your head and cry!)
Get on a plane and fly!

Get on a plane and fly!

Get on a plane and fly!

Get on a plane and...
fly!

I hope Tom pitches again, but not for the Mets. It would be sad if that's what he's remembered for after all he's accomplished.
