Goodbye and Farewell
Is it pure greed that motivates them
Or could it be that they're insecure
That they are lost without it...
Do they really think anyone cares
about them 'going back to work'
Do they value publicity, fame
adulation and little boys' games
so highly that they're willing
to risk their very lives...
All these filthy-rich sports stars
can disappear tomorrow and I,
a former sports fan fanatic,
would cheer that development
Let them get real for a change
The people in this country are
fighting for our lives. We
don't give a hoot about
professional sports anymore
Goodbye, Labron James!
Goodbye, James Harden!
Goodbye, Tom Brady!
Goodbye, Bryce Harper
Farewell and good riddance!
