Yankee tradition, can they be beat?
Year 2000 was their latest three-peat.
Steeped in history, chalk up another
During the lifetime of your father and brother.
Many had already written them off
Said they were old, no good, no stuff.
The Yankees did win, as they should
The Metropolitans tried, as hard as they could.
It wasn't the Braves or Cardinals this time
But one giant step up, to the varsity nine.
Benny and the jets called it in five
But wrongly for his Mets, ain't no jive.
Mayor Giuliani had school kids play hooky
One day before Halloween spooky.
Rudy led them in ticker-tape glory
Fourth in five years, just standard story.
Out in front was Grand Marshall Yogi,
Fans cheered MVP Jeter and manager Torre.
Fourteen consecutive games in a row
Another record to post in the Show.
Piazza had Clemens too much on his mind
The Mets' All-Star catcher just cried and whined.
The Rocket threw Mike's bat in vain
But purposely missed, causing more pain.
With their $322 thousand per, winner's shares
Roger's $50 grand fine, with barrel, who cares.
The number 4 and 7 trains
Got New York fans to all the games.
The SUBWAY Series really pumped up New York
With the Bronx Bombers popping champagne cork.
As the clock chimed midnight, Piazza flied out
To Bernie in center, who then knelt about
He thanks God for victory, they all jump and shout.
New York City experienced World Series frenzy
When the Yankees clinched it a day after Wednesday.
As the 'Ol Perfessor Casey, would say in Stengeleeze,
The Metsies are Amazin'.....but against the Yankees, Puh-lease !!!!!
