Lyrics

This one was penned by my good friend Nick LaGrasta; while it is not a big moment from the show it is about sports and a book and is a nice job of jingle writing. Here's to more good stuff from Nick.

The Ballad of Jorge Posada (The Ballad of John and Yoko)

Sittin' on the bench in the Stadium
Trying to crack the lineup for once
The man in stripes says
Girardi's our guy you know
They didn't want to give me a chance
Christ this game it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're gonna DFA me

Finally get a start in Milwaukee
Hitting like a buck twenty three
Joey T called to say
You’re gonna make it some day
I swear you’re gonna be MVP
Christ this game it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
The’re gonna Triple A me

In ‘98 they make me the starter
Girardi goes Chicago North Side
I get me four rings
The Fat Lady Sings
Confetti in the limos we ride
Christ this game it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They’re gonna monument me

Savin’ up my money for retirement
Givin’ all my gloves to charity
Last night DJ said
Oh boy when you’re dead
The Hall of Fame come lookin’ for your cleats
Safe

Joey T goes out on his keister
Joey G gets made man in charge
The lineup card said
I’m back on the bench you know
They wouldn’t even let me DH
Christ this game it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They’re gonna Wally Pipp me

ARod is a big lyin’ cheater
Screwed me out of MVP
The newspapers said
It’s gone to his head
He’s gotta give a cup full of pee
Christ this game it ain't easy
Got books to sell don’t you see
The way things are going
They’re gonna Pulitzer me

Nice. I actually think this site will eventually cover every single Beatles song ever.
