    Everyone Knows It's Griffey: A song parody

    We love you, Junior. But you need to figure it out soon, please. Exaggerated for comic effect.

    (To the tune of "Windy" by the Association).

    Who's limpin' 'round in deep center field,
    Waving at every fly ball he sees?
    Who's always hangin' out on the DL?
    Everyone knows it's Griffey

    Who was a ten-time AL Gold Glover?
    Who coulda won a few MVPs?
    Who couldn't now outrun my grandmother?
    Everyone know it's Griffey

    And Griffey's a super pro
    He's not selfish no no no
    But if he was old and slow
    He'd let us know (he'd let us know....)

    Who says the fans and press should all be fair?
    Just let him play wherever he please?
    Who's gonna be out there in his wheelchair?
    Everyone knows it's Griffey

    I'm probably the biggest Griffey supporter on this board, and I like it.

    You've got to have some sort of sense of humor about things.

    This thread would not have been complete w/out this comment. Thanks for your valuable input. Personally I am way more likely to neg someone for talking about negs than someone who is trying to be funny by re-writing lyrics.

    Not sure who or what you mean with this comment... as you like to play the intelligent one with some of your posts. However, this thing called freedom is not as your mind likes to think at a privately owned board. That freedom thing is a different thing here. I am sure even a mind like yours can understand this concept, right?

    Re: Everyone Knows It's Griffey: A song parody

    I love this stuff...
    (please read the first line guys)..

    It's humor, and very good, I must add...

    I'd give more rep...but gotta spread it now.

    Whoever negs this sort of stuff should be negged.

    He's right you know. If you call Adam Dunn fat and lazy and say he doesn't care. You're expressing an opinion but you would be negged. Even though it's true. Mostly sheep reside here.

    Re: Everyone Knows It's Griffey: A song parody

    I just fail to see the humor in making a song up about someone who is out their still playing with his hamstrings held together with titanium screws. Some people may like it and I respect that but not for me. How bout next time a song about the bullpen. I could go for that.

    So, why would it be ok to make fun of the bullpen, but not Griffey? Because Griffey had surgery? Many guys in the bullpen also have had surgery and variety of injuries. Shouldn't they then be off limits too?

    Anyway, I thought it was funny. See if Ryan Parker can record it for us.
