Lyrics

Continuing the HBO theme songs here is The Life and Times of Tim theme "I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive" by Hank Williams Sr.

Now you’re looking at a man who lives way out west
If you start to diss Chicago he puffs out his chest
No matter how hard you try
You'll never get Wilbon to be surprised

Clemson Oklahoma you know that he had that
He knew that thief in Florida wasn't coming back
No matter how hard you try
You'll never get Wilbon to be Surprised

Kevin Sheenhan does his best to tell you when its gonna snow
But if you want the weather don’t waste your breath
Just call up Michael Wilbon
cause already knows

Everything he touches turns into gold
While Tony sit across from him, just getting old
No matter how hard you try
You'll never get Wilbon to be surprised

This was kind of a band-aid. I recorded a Lou Reed Perfect Day tune on Monday night for the skins game but Jerry's D Jacks tune beat me to it on Tuesday morning (his was better). I saw Wilbon was going to be on so I just updated this one to bring something with me.

Very nicely done, Patrick. "He knew that missing plane wasn't coming back." -- echoes of "Wilbon Was Right!"
