Under the big concrete dome,
There was a telephone,
And a 21 year old picture of Joe Carter jumping over the moon.
And there were four coaches sitting in the dugout,
And many frustrated players,
And a team in need of a prayer.
And many tired relievers,
And some absent believers.
And a Mune a Colby a Dickey and Buehrle,
And a fan base that was beginning to worry.
Goodnight Joe Carter jumping over the moon.
And the pre All-Star break swoon.
And goodnight season.
And goodnight brush,
Goodnight postseason push,
And goodnight to the season that’s gone to mush.
And goodbye playoff chances, everywhere.
