Allow me to tell a story about our little town
The big movies film here now and the stars all hang around
Some celebs are from here but we still hope they know
That we’re the ones that made you, we’ll decide when you can go

We can’t stand your success, we aren't afraid to let it show
Just ask Lenny Clarke, he’ll be sure to tell you so
We’re arguing for sport here, and itching for a fight
We’re obsessed with your presence
Yet repulsed by your sight

God loves the city's chosen few congrats to one and all
You’ve battled to the top my friends, now we’re ready for your fall
You’ve reached new heights and seen the sights
Smell the roses while you can
For another star is falling in Boston tonight

We’re creatures of habit, nothing ever changes here
2 AM, last call, so you better buy more beer
When our teams win it all, all we get’s a rolling rally
And every goddamn function’s MC’d by Mike O'Malley

It's 2008 and new kids are still the rage
Well at least we know when they play Peter Wolf won’t come on stage
The church is in a bind, there’s trouble in the halls
But it’s that senator from Arlington that tried to grab my balls

God loves the city's chosen few congrats to one and all
You’ve battled to the top my friends, now we’re ready for your fall
You’ve reached new heights and seen the sights
Smell the roses while you can
For another star is falling in Boston tonight

If your name ain't Russell, Williams, Brady, Ortiz, Yaz, Orr, Byrd
This place can be a little tough, some might say absurd
Dale and Holly build you up while the big show tears you down
Just like Edgar Renteria, we’ll ship you out of town

But it’s the GM’s and the owners who will take it on the chin
Cause we don’t want excuses, we just wanna win
Ya see when losing your everyone’s enemy
I wish Henry, Kraft and Wyc would kick the shit out of Jeremy

God loves the city's chosen few congrats to one and all
You’ve battled to the top my friends, now we’re ready for your fall
You’ve reached new heights and seen the sights
Smell the roses while you can
For another star is falling in Boston tonight

Don't go away, Hazel Mae, don't go away
Where did you go, Hazel Mae, where did you go
Please don't go, we love you so
Don't go away my Hazel Mae

Don't go away, Hazel Mae, don't go away
Where did you go, Hazel Mae, where did you go
Please don't go, we love you so
Don't go away my Hazel Mae

How about those Automatics, Ernie’s got a lot of fans
They don’t sleep in cheap hotels or ride in crappy vans
They’re headed for the top, though they may not be there yet
They’re still the only bar band that’s touring in a jet

And don’t forget our actors, Chapman, Scannell, Lynch and Goodman
The directors always seem to make our hometown guys the hoodlum
But i’ll tell ya finding talent in this town it ain’t easy
Even Marty had to use a lousy local band from Quincy

God loves the city's chosen few congrats to one and all
you’ve battled to the top my friends, now we’re ready for your fall
you’ve reached new heights and seen the sights
smell the roses while you can
for another star is falling in Boston tonight
