The Chavy That We Used to Know


After all the anger directed at Chavy for his "get off my lawn" comment, I was filled with mixed emotions. I always liked Chavez, and never blamed him for his poor contract. He was really good before his injuries derailed him and I appreciated his honesty in dealing with them. For some reason, him joining the Yanks didn't bother me until reading his comments today, unlike my instant dislike for every other ex-Athletic that joined the Evil Empire. But his chiding of the A's did piss me off. It felt similar to an ex-girlfriend/ex-boyfriend disregarding a previous relationship.

So here are my song lyrics written to Gotye's hit song "Somebody that I Used to Know". Also inspired from the parody by Kobye entitled "The Kobe that we used to know".

Now and then I think of when you were in Oakland
Like when you said the A's were young and that the Yanks would cry
Beane decided you were the right 3B
And paid a mountain for your company
And that's a contract that we unfortunately still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of defense
Like gold glove plays with the glove and with the arm
But when Beane found that you did not make sense
Well you said that you still loved Oakland
And I'll admit that I was sad that this was over

But you didn't have to put the pinstripes on
Make out like you were never here and that we were nothing
And we don't even need your glove
But you treat the A's like children and that feels so rough
No you didn't have to join those mofos
Have them shave off your goatee and then be friends with Jeter
With JD we don't need you though
And now you're not the Chavy that we used to know ( X 3)

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed us over
Making us believe that you were healthy and you weren't done
But Chavy rarely ever did play
His back didn't work that way
You said that you were ready to go
But you were more of an undead zombie than the Chavy that we used to know

But you didn't have to put the pinstripes on
Make out like you were never here and that we were nothing
And we don't even need your glove
But you treat the A's like children and that feels so rough
No you didn't have to join those mofos
Have them shave off your goatee and then be friends with Jeter
With JD we don't need you though
And now you're not the Chavy that we used to know ( X 3)
