The Mystery of The World
Lyrics
THE MYSTERY OF THE WORLD

CHORUS

NEW ENGLAND HOLDS ITS BREATH FROM SUMMER INTO FALL
OUR SOX CLIMB TO FIRST PLACE AND THEN BLOW IT ALL
WHY THE SOX LOSE WITH GLORY?S THE MYSTERY OF THE WORLD
NO ONE?S EVER SOLVED IT SO I?M GIVING IT A WHIRL.

THEY SAY THE SOX CAN?T WIN BECAUSE OF BABE RUTH?S CURSE
WELL, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IT?S MUCH, MUCH WORSE
DON?T BLAME THE SULTAN OF SWAT THE GREAT BABE RUTH
GOD?S NOT A RED SOX FAN, AND THAT?S THE AWFUL TRUTH

GOD KNOWS WHY THE SOX LOSE AT THE END OF THE YEAR
WHY DO THE YANKEES WIN? THE SAME REASON I FEAR
LORD, ARE YOU A YANKEE FAN, DON?T TELL IF YOU ARE
NO SOX FAN CAN STAND IT THAT?S GOING TOO FAR

REPEAT CHORUS

ALL YOU RED SOX FANS ACROSS THE U.S.A.
AND THOSE UP IN CANADA WHO STAY UP TO WATCH THEM PLAY
SOX FANS IN MEXICO ALL THE WORLD TOO
EVEN YOU DOWN UNDER WHO PLAY BALL WITH THE KANGAROO

FANS ROUND THE WORLD PRAY FOR A SERIES WIN
PRAY HARD ROYAL ROOTERS FROM THE VATICAN
OH GOD DON?T HEAR OUR PRAYERS WITH A DEAF EAR
MAY ALL THE SAINTS SING ?LET THE SOX WIN THIS YEAR!?

REPEAT THIRD LINE IN CHORUS AND FADE
