Olivers Army!

...with apologies to Elvis Costello



Don't start him walking
He could walk all night
Keep his mind from sleepwalking
While the Mets are putting the world to right
God let the Fish take the bait
Not to leave it up to Endy would be really great!

CHORUS:

Oliver's army is here to play
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today

There was a checkpoint Willie
He didn't crack a smile
But it's no dancing party
When you've been on the murder mile
Don't make us go back to Humber
One more win, one less magic number

NL East is up for grabs
Jimmy Rollins suffers from crabs
We could be in post season time
If not overrun by a cheesesteak kind
With the boys from the Dominican and Virginia and the like

Now we're in danger
Of crying in our beer
but fans could become derranged
With just a pitch in Mr. Cabrerra's ear
If you're out of luck we're out of work
We could send you back to Pittsburgh!

CHORUS

Oliver's army is here to stay
Oliver's army are on their way
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today
And I would rather be anywhere else
But here today

    Oliver's Army, unlike Archie Bunker's Army, is going to need some bullpen help so unless he pitches a 9-inning shutout, let's also pray that all the muppets warming up in the pen also have a decent outing, eh?

    I know for a fact that Mr. Met is a big Elvis Costello fan.
