Lyrics

Some say chimps grow into monkeys, and our world they'll overthrow
Some say Strasburg is an orchid, that soon elsewhere will grow
Some say Tim Kurkjian goes to the market just to buy avocado
I say we know what is stinking, and what's stinking is this show

When the football season's over, and the All-Star break's too long
And the A-block of SportsCenter has highlights of ping pong
Just remember, ask for Harley when you call to buy windows
And when Tony starts a podcast, maybe he'll call it "The Rose"

Very nice! Joe sounds really great on this. This song certainly deserves to be skewered - and I probably hate it more than most. I had to perform this at my senior prom banquet in high school, where I agreed to be the music portion, and then someone on a committee picked this dumb song.

Day made hearing you sing the words ping pong. Almost didn't listen because I hate this song so much. Glad I did so now this is all I will hear. Thanks for the save.
