Bohemian Rhapsody in Blue (a lyrical eulogy to the Toronto Maple Leafs)

No idea what this has to do with the song - John Grieshop

Bohemian Rhapsody in Blue

=========================

Is this a real team

Is this just fantasy

Caught in bad slide, no escape from mediocrity

Open your eyes, look down to the ice and seeeee...

It's just a bad team

They need no sympathy

Because they're Maple Leafs, Toronto, shooting high, shooting low

Anywhere you shoot it doesn't really matter Kadri, Kadr-iii

Burkie, you blew it man.

Had a deal for Lu all done, didn't pull the trigger: now you're gone.

Phaneuf, playoffs just begun

But now you've gone and thrown your youth away.

Kessel, boo-hoo-ooooo

Didn't mean to make you cry

If the Bruins don't win this game tomorrow

They'll try again, with Seguin...(as if nothing really matters)

Brian...your time was done

All you did was whine, team kept losing all the time

Good-bye Burkie buddy, you had to go.

If you're feeling all maligned then launch lawsuits.

Momma, oo-oo-oooo (everywhere the Leafs blow)

I don't wanna watch

Sometimes I wish they never were on at all

I see a little Hall of Famer of a man

Pierre Larouche, Pierre Larouche, where did all the damn fans go?

Hurricanes and Lighting very very frightening teams

Hall of Fame-o (Hall of Fame-o)

Hall of Fame-o (Hall of Fame-o)

Hall of Fame-o no Grabo (I don't think so-oh-oh-oh)

"I'm not a poor boy, got lots of money."

(He's not a poor boy, but new contract means

Spend his career in this mediocrity)

"Shooting high, shooting low, will I get to go?"

We still laugh: No, he will not get to go (Let him go!)

We still laugh: You will not get to go (Let him go!)

We still laugh: You will not get to go ("Let me go!")

Will not get to go ("Let me go!")

(Never, never...) Never let you go, never let you go-oh-oh-oh

Oh Paul Karyia, Paul Karyia

(Paul Karyia gets to go)

The CBC are the ones who did this to me, to me, to meeeeee...

Leaf fans think they'll win it all before I die

And I think it's funny but they can try

No way-ay, it's not even a maybe

Just gonna wind up

Just gonna wind up playin' golf

You don't have to worry

Anyone can see

You don't have to worry

You don't have to worry, Stanleyyyyy

(everywhere the Leafs blow....)
