Mean Joe and the Curtain

Mean Joe Greene number seventy-five
kept the Pittsburgh Steelers alive

was a solid wall on that frontline
and sacking the quarterback was fine

the Steel Curtain was solid back then
in the seventies they’d always win

that was the decade of the Steelers
take your rookie card to a dealer

and maybe it is worth some green
never forgetting mean Joe Greene

    That sums up that team well. They were the best, and I admit, I hated it (Redskin fan)
