    There once was a man who was governor

    Who saved the Olympics on a gander

    He left office abruptly

    To run for the Top Job

    And found himself just a bystander

    In a city once known for its beans
    We chug beer and parade in our greens
    The Church said, "Should Lent
    Be so riotously spent?"
    But for us, that's what Paddy's Day means.

    When Papelbon does the Sox jig,
    The fans know he's done something big,
    ��� While his ERA's dropping,
    ��� And his feet keep a'clopping,
    The team is one we can all dig.
    ���

    There once was gov'nor named Mitt,
    Who thought he could do all of it,
    He gave up his "res",
    For a chance at the "prez",
    Now Mitt's in a bit of a snit.

    There once was a manager named Terry

    Of whom, at first, we were leery.

    But now he's won twice,

    and he seems kind of nice.

    So wouldn't a third be more merry?

    There once was a Speaker named Sal,
    Who was not the Governor's pal,
    Though they were both Democratic,
    One was quite autocratic,
    Now Sal won't play nice with Deval.

    Ode to our pitcher Curt Schilling,

    whose arm is so obviously illing.

    Still he signed a new pact,

    perhaps after the fact,

    and it's John Henry he soon will be billing.

    Speaker Sal was all in a lather

    over Governor Patrick's blather

    "How will you fudge it?,

    This mess of a budget,

    with wampum rewards so I gather!"

    With Cervasio leaving from NESN,

    I turned to my priest for confessing,

    "While beholding her bottom,

    my thoughts turn to Sodom."

    He said, "Perhaps her departure's a blessing!"

    There once was a Paddy from Boston

    though the FBI said they lost him

    While they tried but in vain

    Their prestige to regain

    The respect that Whitey had lost them.

    To the Sox said the ace Curt Schilling

    My wallet's open but my shoulder's not willing

    I'll try not to get fat

    Stay at home, pet my cat

    And young Buch can serve as my fill-in
