The Lyrics

The hurricane and flood in New Orleans is one of the worst disasters in US history, but it could an opportunity for Saints owner Tom Benson to find a better stadium than the Superdome
Oh, if the Saints play ball elsewhere
Oh, if the Saints play ball elsewhere
Baton Rouge the home of the Tigers
If the Saints play ball elsewhere

But if the Saints leave New Orleans
But if the Saints leave New Orleans
They may play in San Antonio
The home of the Alamo

Oh, if the Saints leave New Orleans
Oh, if the Saints leave New Orleans
Why don't they move to Los Angeles
A town not built on a swamp

Don't you think that this parody lacks tact, Tim??

Yeah, sure, Los Angeles. Ain't no natural disasters there. Maybe the smog will get so bad people can't see (or smell) how much the Saints stink. Bush won't let the Saints move, even temporarily, to Baton Rouge. He will never allow an American football team to move to France. (Let's see how long it takes any of the wingnuts to get that joke.) They say there's a curse on the Saints because the Superdome was built on the site of a graveyard. But, as N.O. native Branford Marsalis explains, how do you account for how badly the Saints stunk when they still played at the old Tulane Stadium (1967-1974)?

I don't think this one was off-paced. Maybe a tad unfunny, but why do we have more "1" votes than "5" votes?

I want to profusely apologize to the people who were offended by my parody regarding the Saints. I was not making fun of New Orleans and the current situation it is in, just the fact that owner Tom Benson has not been happy with the Superdome for years and that this could be an opportunity for him to make a move At this point, New Orleans has a lot more to worry about than the possible moving of a football team. Please welcome the people who have had to move to other states with open arms and understanding
