"Gratitude (For Curt Flood)" as written by and Steve Wynn....
Now everybody's walking like they're rolling in dough
Throwing all their money 'round just for show
Acting like everything is coming to them
And knowing that more is just around the bend

But I'm the one who paved the way
Laid my body in the road so you can walk on it today
I stood right up when they tried to push me down
You're so high up, you forget to look down

You call that gratitude?

I'm the well-paid slave and the roads that I paved
Took my career, that's just what I gave.
Five years later, they were rolling in clover
But nothing for me, my career was over

If I was born just a generation later
I could have settled up with an arbitrator
I'd be wearing fur coats if I were rich
With a bum-bum-bitty-bitty-bum

You call that gratitude?

On the day that I died and they laid me in the ground
Where was everybody? They couldn't be found
I'm gone and they don't know my name
No plaque, no speech, no hall of fame

A-Rod, Zito, Posada, Tejada
Johan, Manny, Maddux, Mussina
Who's the one who paved the way with blood?
Go say my name, it's (Flood!) Curt Flood

You call that gratitude?

A-Rod, Zito, Posada, Tejada
Johan, Manny, Maddux, Mussina
You call that gratitude?
