Baseball's Mortal Sin
Lyrics

BASEBALL?S MORTAL SIN


THE HOUSE BABE RUTH BUILT MAKES ME SO UPSET
MANY OTHER FANS HAVE THAT SAME REGRET
THE BABE BEGAN THEIR TRADITION TO BE FIRST
THEY PUT AWAY TEAMS LIKE BODIES IN A HEARSE

THEY FIND A PLAYER WHO CAN?T PLAY FOR HIS LIFE
ONCE IN PINSTRIPES HE?S THE BABE COME TO LIFE!
OH YANKEE FANS DON?T CARE FOR OTHER TEAMS!
THEY LAUGH AT OUR MOANS, THEY LAUGH AT OUR SCREAMS!

CHORUS

THE NEW YORK YANKEES ARE BASEBALL?S MORTAL SIN!
THEIR GREED?S SO GREAT, THEY ALWAYS NEED TO WIN
HOW CAN THEIR FANS STAND IT YEAR AFTER YEAR?
HOW BORING IT MUST BE TO CHEER WITHOUT FEAR!

ONLY UPS NO DOWNS, IT?S ALWAYS THE SAME
THE YANKEES WIN THE LAST WORLD SERIES GAME
LET?S DEMAND CHANGE, LET ANOTHER TEAM WIN
LET?S BREAK UP THE YANKEES, BASEBALL?S MORTAL SIN!

CHICAGO SUFFERS BASEBALL?S LONGEST DROUGHT
THEIR FANS STILL CHEER, BUT THEY SHOULD POUT
THE WHITE SOX HAVEN?T WON SINCE ?17
YAH AND THE CUBS ARE WORSE, THAT?S TRULY OBSCENE!

REPEAT CHORUS

THE CUBS LAST WON FLAGS IN ?O8 AND ?O7
SO FAR BACK, THE BABE WON?T CURSE FROM HEAVEN
THE BROOKLYN DODGERS FLED NEW YORK IN DISGRACE
THE YANKEES KILLED THEM IN MANY A SERIES RACE

LA FOLLOWS THE OLD DODGER TRADITION
NEW YORK STILL BEATS THEM INTO SUBMISSION
FOR YEARS ATLANTA?S BEEN TOPS IN THE N. L.
BUT THE YANKEES KNOCK THEM INTO BASEBALL HELL!

REPEAT CHORUS

IN THE SUBWAY SERIES WITH THE NEW YORK METS
THE YANKEES TRAIN WRECKED THEM WITH NO REGRETS
THE DETROIT TIGERS ARE TURNED INTO PUSSY CATS
BY THE LION OF BOTH LEAGUES, THE KING OF CATS!

CLEVELAND TORONTO AND ALL THE OTHER TEAMS
LIE BROKEN ON THE YANKEES FIELD OF DREAMS
THEIR ARCH FOES THE RED SOX ARE THEIR BIG TREAT
THEY TORTURE THEM INTO GLORIOUS DEFEAT

(Tagline)

THOSE DAMN NEW YORK YANKEES GET UNDER MY SKIN
LORD, WHEN WILL YOU LET SOME OTHER TEAM WIN!
