Ode to Billy Beane...as sung by Michael Jackson

Performed by Michael Jackson, lyrics by every General Manager in  Major League Baseball. (For those of you who are under 30, the black guy with a nose in the video is really Michael Jackson)

Feel free to sing along...

I was more like a GM from a losing team
I said "Don't mind, but what do you mean I am the one,
who got fleeced when the Beane came to town?"
They said I am the one who got fleeced when the Beane came to town.

He told me his name was Billy Beane and I peed my jeans
Then every head turned when I trade nine guys for one
I got hosed when the Beane came to town

People always told me be careful of who you deal
And don't go round dealin' young boys arms
Steinbrener always told me "Watch out for MoneyBall"
And be careful of what you do, Billy Beane will come for you

Billy Beane is at my door
he's just a guy who claims that he's not a bum
"That Cupcakes' got a gun."
He says "I Am The One",  but he'd probably trade his son

For forty days and forty nights
He was on my side
But who can stand when Beane is "Da Man"
His schemes and plans
You'll get screwed when the Beane comes to town
So take my strong advice, just remember to always think twice
(Do Think Twice)

He told me "Baby, trust me
check his OBP"
Then showed a photo, Jocketty crying
His eyes looked like mine
I got hosed when the Beane came to town, Baby


People always told me be careful of what you do
And don't go around dealin' young boys' arms
Beane came and stood right by me
The press they filled the room
This happened Much too soon
Gammons called me a buffoon


Billy Beane Is at my door
he's just a guy who claims that he's not a bum
But the guy would trade his son

Billy Beane Is at my door
he's just a guy who claims that he's not a bum
But that guy would trade his son

He says trade nine for one, I swear the guys not done.
he says I am the one, come on trade me twelve for one

Billy Beane Is at my door
he's just a guy who claims that he's not a bum
But The guy would trade his Son

he Says trade nine for one, Sabermetrics is such fun
he Says I Am The One, I would trade my son
he Says I Am The One

Billy Beane Is at my door
Billy Beane Is at my door
Billy Beane Is at my door
Billy Beane Is at my door
Billy Beane Is at my door
Billy Beane Is at my door
