Weird Scenes Inside the Green 'n' Gold Mind -- A tribute to Barry

Inspired by BarryZitoForever's  recent diary, I decided  to write my own Doors tribute to what is likely to be the end of an era.  Strangely, I didn't have to change much...

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My lefty friend, the end

Of everything you've thrown, the end
Of Fearless in the Zone, the end
No "one hand clapping" jive, the end
We'll never see seventy-five again

Can you picture Scott Boras
Kissing George Steinbrenner's ass?
Desperately in need...of some...strangers hand
In a...desperate land

Lost in a New York wilderness of pain
And all the owners are insane
All the owners are insane
Waiting for the summer reign, yeah

There's danger in the AL East
Ride the King's Highway, Barry
Weird scenes inside the green `n' gold mind
Ride the highway west, Barry

Ride the Hurt, ride Thomas
To his post-season promise, Barry
The Hurt is big, seven miles
Ride the Hurt...he's old and his skin is cold

The best in the West
The best in the West
Get here, and we'll do the rest

The team bus is callin' us
The team bus is callin' us
Driver, where you takin' us?

The pitcher awoke before dawn
He put his white shoes on
He took a jersey from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall
He went into the room where his catcher lived, and...then he
Paid a visit to his brother, Dan, and then he
He walked on down the hall, and
And he came to a door...and he looked inside
Billy?  Yes, son.  I want to kill you.
Macha?  I want to FIRE YOU NOW!!!

C'mon Barry, take a chance with us
C'mon Barry, take a chance with us
C'mon Barry, take a chance with us
And meet me at the back of the team bus
Doin' a green rock
On a team bus
Doin' a gold rock
C'mon, yeah

Kill, kill, kill, kill, kill, kill

This is the end
Beautiful friend
This is the end
My lefty friend, the end

It hurts to set you free
But you'll never follow me
The end curveballs 10 feet high
The end of "WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!"

This is the end
This is the end
Beautiful friend
