New lyrics to a song by Neil Diamond originally performed by The Monkees
1. I thought that the Yanks were gonna take it all.
Win World Series Number Twenty-Eight.
But C,C, Sabathia told 'em,
"I don't think I can play."
Way to ruin a die-hard Yank fan's day!
Then I met the Mets!
Now I'm a believer!
Place your bets!
This year is the year!
I'm in love...LOVE!
I'm a believer, I couldn't leave 'em if I tried!
2. I thought Joe Girardi had it figured out.
They did just fine without Derek J.
Then the Houston Astros
Flew into the Bronx,
Shut 'em out three-nothing. Sorry,no thonx!
Sorry, New York Yankees.
Have to say adieu.
Rooting for the Orange and the Blue!
REPEAT CHORUS TWICE AND FADE
Of course whether I'll STAY with the Amazins depends on what they, and the Yanks, do in 2016.
LET'S GO METS! BEAT L.A.!
