Title: Traded For Myself
Subject: Harry Chiti

Never played in Ohio, no
Nor down in Baltimore, you know
But the Mets' selection
Was the rarest defection
I was traded for myself

Well, I know it don't seem right
Take it up with Mr. Weiss
Cause before too long
I went back to Cleveland
I was traded for myself

Oh traded for myself
Oh traded for myself
They did nothing but lose
But I'm back on the move
I was traded for myself

New York City is a pearl
But my time there was a whirl
The expansion guys
Only said good-bye
Left me traded for myself

So you think it was a blink?
The whole transaction took six weeks
Guess I had my chance
I only got a glance
Then I was traded for myself

Oh traded for myself
Oh traded for myself
They did nothing but lose
So I'm back on the move
I was traded for myself

I saw every ball they hurled
I caught knuckleballs that twirled
The expansion guys
Only passed me by
Left me traded for myself

So you think it was a blink?
The whole transaction took six weeks
Guess I had my chance
I only got a glance
Then I was traded for myself

Oh traded for myself
Oh traded for myself
Guess I had my chance
I only got a glance
Guess I had my chance
I only got a glance
Guess I had my chance
I only got a glance

Oh, I just offset
My own debt
My own debt
Debt, debt, debt, debt
Debt, debt, debt, debt
Debt, debt, debt, debt
Debt, debt, debt, debt
Debt, debt owwww!

Traded for myself
Traded for myself
Traded for myself
Traded for myself


Parody of Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself"

A matchup worth waiting for!

I voted for Traded For Myself; it was an ambitious effort that paid dividends.

"Ike advice, Ike advice...Please get your shit together" is wonderful and I'd love to hear those exact people from the movie sing this exact parody. That said, I gotta go with Chiti. That shit was brilliant.
Great Googily Moogily!

i think maybe that should be the cost of losing a round. you cranepool-karaoke your own loser-tune.
the first step is admitting you're a runner.

running is a mental sport, and we're all insane.

I voted for the "Sound of Music" parody. Because it's fruity.

Same here. Chiti.

Is it weird that I had-- and strongly considered-- the exact same idea?

Nothing here didn't make me laugh Metsishly. Two rounds of applause.

Now that the round is over, can we learn who the contestants are?
