Welcome to the Lockout


In honor of the owners and players royally screwing the golden goose I thought take a stab at out-doing my favorite sports writer, Michael Silver of Yahoo! Sports, in the lyric altering department by re-working a Guns N’ Roses classic for the NFL labor mess. And while I personally believe both sides are equally responsible for this shibacle the rewrite worked best if I picked on the owners.

***

Welcome to the lockout
We got no fun or games
We got nothing you want
The players deserve all the blame
We are the owners that can’t find
The cash the players need
We didn’t offer enough money, honey
So cancel your DirecTV

Chorus:

It’s a lockout
Welcome to the lockout
Watch it bring them to their shun n,n,n,n,,n,n,,n,n,n,,n,n,,n knees, knees
We wanna watch the players bleed

Welcome to the lockout
We take it day by day
If you want out you’ll need to sue
But it’s the price you pay
The CBA was like a very sexy girl
Doty was very hard to please
You can hear the fans scream
If you want to play for free

It’s a lockout
Welcome to the lockout
See our, our, our lock and key
We, we wanna hear them scream

Welcome to the lockout
It gets worse here everyday
Ya learn ta live like an animal
In the courtroom where we play
If it’s our financials you want to see
You’ll give in eventually
You can have anything you want
But we’ll need another billion or three

Chorus

And when you’re rich you never
Ever want to come down, so down, so down, so down YEAH!

You know where you are
You’re in the lockout baby
You’re gonna die

It’s a lockout
Welcome to the lockout
Watch it bring them to their shun n,n,n,n,,n,n,,n,n,n,,n,n,,n knees, knees
It’s a lockout
Welcome to the lockout
See our, our, our lock and key
It’s a lockout
Welcome to the lockout
Watch it bring them to their shun n,n,n,n,,n,n,,n,n,n,,n,n,,n knees, knees
It’s a lockout
Welcome to the lockout
Watch it bring them to their shun n,n,n,n,,n,n,,n,n,n,,n,n,,n knees, knees
It’s gonna bring them down!
Ha!

    Nice creativity.

    I have been so far out of the loop that I didn’t even know that there was a lockout.

    Nice work, man!

    Remember, hockey is a faster, less commercial-filled sport where they PLAY for 60 minutes instead of taking 40 second breaks every 15 seconds… :)

    Bravo!

    Well, first the players decertified their union and then the owners locked them out. I’m trying to think of a song I can use for the players so I can give equal treatment to the stupidity.

    Thanks! Or, as my grandfather used to say “I went to the fights and a hockey game broke out”

    Thanks, man. I’m finally back from my roadtrip, so I have a lot of reading to catch up on. I hope all is well with you and the family.
