"The Broke Song"

This year I don't feel like signing anyone
I just wanna save all my cash
Don't feel like picking up my phone
Unless it's about a loan
'Cause this year I swear I'm not signing anyone.

Uh!
I'm gonna sit in my box
And glare at the fans
Raise the ticket prices, get rid of the Shake Shack
Nobody's gonna tell me I can't

I'll be lounging on my yacht,
Just countin' all my dough
Click to SNY, so I can brag to all my friends
'Cause in my Citi I'm the freaking man

Oh, yes I said it
I said it
I said it 'cause I can

This year I don't feel like signing anyone
I just wanna save all my cash
Don't feel like picking up my phone
Unless it's about a loan
'Cause this year I swear I'm not signing anyone.

No one at all!
Ooh, hoo, ooh, hoo, ooh, ooh-ooh
No one at all
Ooh, hoo, ooh, hoo, ooh, ooh-ooh

Tomorrow I'll wake up, sign some veterans
Ink a really nice pitcher, Make a run at Cy Young
And he's gonna scream out: 'I'm the Man!' (Oh my God, I'm the man!)
Yeah

I might get lucky, win a World Series ring
I bet my old man will be so proud of me
But sorry pops, you'll just have to wait
Haha

Oh, yes I said it
I said it
I said it 'cause I can

This year I don't feel like signing anyone
I just wanna save all my cash
Don't feel like picking up my phone
Unless it's about a loan
'Cause this year I swear I'm not signing anyone.

No, we ain't gonna win this year
'Cause I ain't signing anyone
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
We’ll just lose with what we’ve got
And let the prospects play
Lose, lose, lose, lose, lose, lose, lose, lose, lose, lose

Ooh
This year I don't feel like signing anyone
I just wanna save all my cash
Don't feel like picking up my phone
Unless it's about a loan
'Cause this year I swear I'm not signing anyone.

No one at all
Ooh, hoo, ooh, hoo, ooh, ooh-ooh
No one at all
Ooh, hoo, ooh, hoo, ooh, ooh-ooh
No one at all

"Don't You Want Ike Davis?"
(Based on 'Don't You Want Me Baby' by the Human League)

You were chasing for a pop-up in Citi Field
When he hit you
He knocked you down, he shook you up
And turned you around
Turned you into doggie doo
Now three years later on you've got the fans on your butt
Success has been elusive for you
But don't forget the bat that put you where you are now
‘Cuz we seem to be stuck with you.

Don't. Don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it when I hear that you can’t trade me
Don't. Don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you when you say that you don't need me


It's much too hard to jive
When you bat just two-oh-five
You'd better hit a lick or we will both be sorry

Don't you want Ike Davis?
Don't you want him? Ohhhh!
Don't you want Ike Davis?
Don't you want him? Ohhhh!


I was chasing for a pop-up in Citi Field
That much is true
But even then I knew they called the medical team
Moe, Larry, Curly, Shemp, Part Two
The Valley Fever year had been such good times
I still crap blue
But now I think it's time I had first base on my own
Not share it with old Lucas Du

Don't. Don't you want me?
You know I can't believe it when I hear that you can’t trade me
Don't. Don't you want me?
You know I don't believe you when you say that you don't need me


It's much too late to chance
When you say ‘you've changed your stance’
You'd better change it back or we will both be sorry

Don't you want Ike Davis?
Don't you want him? Ohhhh!
Don't you want Ike Davis?
Don't you want him? Ohhhh!

[REPEAT x3]

Couldn't get all the way through the six-monkey video.

Again, kudos to both submissions!

The Jeff Wilpon/Bruno Mars fit worked a little better for me, but I loved both of them.
In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, "I have finished." There is a lot of satisfaction in that - Fred Lebow
