  • A Song for Jimmy E

    A Song for Jimmy

    With apologies to Simon & Garfunkel
    Sung to the tune of, "Bridge Over Troubled Waters"

    When you're weary, playing ball,
    When the sun beams in your eyes, we will shade them all
    We're on your side.
    When times get tough
    And wins just can't be found,
    Like a cot in the dugout, Jimmy
    You can take a nap.
    Like a cot in the dugout, Jimmy
    We will take the rap

    When you're down and out,
    When you've lost the game
    When the season feels so long
    We will help you out.
    We'll lift your check.
    When darkness comes
    And the plane is on the ground,
    Like a cot in the dugout, Jimmy
    We'll be there for you.
    Like a cot in the dugout, Jimmy
    We'll fly you to St. Loo.

    Flail on cardinal birds
    Flail on by.
    It's time to rise and shine.
    All your games are on the tube.
    Please stop your whine.
    If you need to rest
    We're guarding your behind.
    Like a cot in the dugout, Jimmy
    You can lay your head.
    Let's face the cold truth, Jimmy
    This season's almost dead.
    "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
    --Albert Einstein

    I was moved.

    4 stars.

    Poor Jimmy - I didn't know his pain until it was put to song.
    Turning the other cheek is better than burying the other body.
