Traded for Myself

When your name is Harry Chiti
It rings a bell in New York City
With my catching equipment
And my baseball bat shipment
I was a traded for myself

I was a P-T-B-N-L-el
Which is a special kind of Hell-el
Well I wait so long
To hear the compensation
But I was traded for myself

Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
When there’s no one they want
Who could pitch, hit, or bunt
I was traded for myself!


In ’fifty three and ‘fifty four-our
Well I fought the Korean War-ar
But it’s not so upsetting
As the bullshit of getting
T-t-traded for myself

So let's get drunk on the plane
'Cause it'll ease my mental strain
Went from Weiss back to Stengel
Wondering which I should strangle
‘Cause I got traded for myself

Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
When there’s no decent Met
For the Indians to get
I'm-a traded for myself!


If I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
Ask “For whom are you playing?”
What should I be saying?
I was traded for myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause they’re free on the plane, I think
Given half a chance
I'd mess my underpants
‘Cause I’ve been traded for myself

Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Given half a chance
I'd mess my underpants!
Given half a chance
I'd mess my underpants!
Given half a chance
I'd mess my underPANTS!!


[Scat]

Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Oh-oh! Traded for myself!


I sat behind Chris Canizzaro
Who was no one’s type of hero
When I said my goodbyes
He had six RBIs!
But I was traded for myself

So they prefer Joe Pignatano
Though his glove has turned to guano
They know Ginsberg’s a failure
So were Choo-Choo and Taylor
But I was traded for myself

Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Well there's no other Met
For the Indians to get
I was traded for myself!

[i]Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
Oh-oh! Traded for myself!
If I had the chance
Given half a chance
I'd mess my underpants
Given half a chance
I'd mess my underpants
Given half a chance
I'd mess my underpants!!!


(OH-OHs to fade)

Wilpon in Time / Jeff & Fred Wilpon / Guns 'N Roses / Sweet Child O' Mine

He's got a smile that screamed to me...
Mild autism or brain injury
But every screen
Said a normal and healthy guy
Now and then when I see his face...
Savant staring blank, to outer space
And I wonder if it's wrong...
I made the COO my child

Whoa, Wilpon in time
Whoaaaa, Wilpon in time

Jeff's a guy, if he really tries...
Can move through different planes
He travels time more than McFly...
From the Beatles to JFK
He dares to zoom off to a different place...
With an intellect that belies
He makes me wonder, if he ran the team...
Would be the Mets demise

Whoa, Wilpon in time
Whoaaaa, Wilpon in time

Where did he go
Where did he go now
Where did he go
Wilpon in Time

I like the other version of Traded For Myself better, but I like this one better than the Wilpon parody.

And thank goodness we'll be seeing some different topics in Round 2!
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

I haven't voted yet, both good ...

...but, 'He travels time more than McFly' made me laugh.

This is not my favorite Chiti.

I'm not sure I follow the "in time" angle on the second. Could someone clarify?

I didn't either. Just now I'm realizing that it's a reference to the "Jeff Wilpon in History Thread."

If that's what it is, well... it's an original take. But it's tough to make a joke out of another joke.
