A few months ago John posted an awesome Ben Folds song ( ) which reminded me of my favorite tune from that band and thanks to the skills of these hyper-talented littles (Jason and John) we put this together for the Orchid. A parody of the Ben Folds Five Song "Underground"

JF: He was pretty great, at San Diego State, I don't know if you remember that
JN: And now its been 5 years and he's only won 53 games
PM: But if the sun is out you should have no doubt I might strike out 17, you'll see

JF: Hand him his glove, please (Here comes the Orchid)
JN: Score him some runs, please (Here comes the Orchid)
All: (Cause when the Orchid's on the mound)

(He's got the looks, he's got the arm, he's got everything)
I've got a blank look on my face, and that's all
(Hey Steve, are you gonna stay in D.C.?)
Can we talk about something else, yeah let me tell you something else,
We got the reigning MVP
But our closer tried to choke him out, choke out!
(Don’t choke Bryce, no no!
We need him on the team)
It’s almost time to go!
In the morning now, in the evening
I’m apathetic
If we win or we lose, I don’t care
(On the Mound, On the mound,
Today the Orchids on the Mound)
I’ve been kicked around
But soon I won’t be here
(Today the Orchids on the Mound)

Yeah I might win 20 games
But it will be for the Padres
They got a pitchers park, near my hometown,
And the team is terrible,
(They don’t care no, no,
Who is on the mound)
Get down, get down, get down!

(On the Mound, On the mound
Today the Orchids on the Mound)
I’ve been kicked around
But soon I won’t be here
(No more, no more Orchid, no more Orchid on the Mound…)
