a snarky pseudo "ode" to the Vikings


after the ViQueens' desperation move to re-acquire Randy "plays when I feel like it" Moss, I dusted off something I wrote several years back, and updated it a bit.

 

 

To the tune of Dead Kennedy's "California Uber Alles"

 

 

I’m receiver Randy Moss

I run over traffic cops

And squirt water on the refs.

 

The quarterback’s old number 4

He has unretired once more

Wants to win or so it’d seem

But throws the ball to the other team!

But throws the ball to the other team!

 

Minnesota.  Overrated.

Minnesota. Ohhh-verated

Overrated.  Minnesota.

Overrated. Ohh, Minnesota!

 

Team’s never won a Super Bowl

What this tune meant to extol

‘70’s they had four tries

came away losers every time!

 

The place that we call our home

Is a drab outdated dome.

Twins and Gophers now under the sun

Los Angeles here we come!

Los Angeles here we come!

 

Minnesota.  Overrated.

Minnesota. Ohhh-verated

Overrated.  Minnesota.

Overrated. Ohh, Minnesota!

 

 

Then came 1998

Supposedly the team was so great

Shirts and hats said “Purple Reign”

But you choked at home just the same!

 

Fan base always clings to hope

While you have strippers on a boat

What have you given your city?

Decades of mediocrity

 

 

New season it’s Twenty-ten

Viking ship sinking again

This might be a bit unfair

You have a chance like Chilly has hair

You have a chance like Chilly has hair

 

Minnesota.  Overrated.

Minnesota. Ohhh-verated

Overrated.  Minnesota.

Overrated. Ohh, Minnesota!
