A baseball team hard to follow Failures really tough to swallow Many problems from stem to stern Fans' frustration in a slow burn Managers don't know what to do To get the Dodgers out of the blues Too close to Hollywood it would seem Many distractions bad for a team Ahead by eight games in '62 Seemed just too good to be true Sandy Koufax leading the way Then bad luck came into play Injury knocked Koufax out Dodgers lost all games in a rout With the Giants in a tie Hard to accept the reason why Fell to the Giants in a playoff Series hopes sadly lost After '62 the Dodgers were back Won two Series with Sandy Koufax In the '70s the Dodgers tanked Dropped two Series to the hated Yanks FOX bought team in '98 I'm now less certain about their fate Team sold again in '04 How could a fan ask for more Team again sold to folks in LA Had big money with which to play Tried to buy their way to the top Bought three players from the Sox One was named A. Gonzalez A gifted player with great prowess Two others were hurt and all done playin' That's all about this I'm gonna' be sayin' Astros beat Dodgers in '17 Houston cheated it would seem Signs were stolen by that team Oh my heavens that was mean Lost to Boston in '18 Another Series left in waiting It's true some Series the Dodgers have won But with bad luck we had less fun Hey what are their chances this year Dodger front office says never fear Same old story I frown and sneer They're too short on pitching I need a beer Wait a minute 2020 Just happened Dodgers won Series I can't stop laughin' Hurray, hurray There's so much to cheer My joy for this team Now crystal clear Faith in the Dodgers Returns to this fan Lots to celebrate That's my plan
