Squirrels imported from Connecticut
Just in time for fall
How much fun is a lot more fun?
Not much fun at all
What's with all the handsome grandsons
In these rock band magazines?
And what have they done with the fat ones?
The bald and the goatee'd?

Strange victory!
Strange victory!
Strange victory!
Strange defeat

A tale is told of a band of squirrels
Who lived in defiance of defeat
They woke up in the nightmare world
Of craven mediocrity
They said, "We're coming out of the black patch!
We're coming out of the pocket!
We're calling into question
Such virtue gone to seed!"

Chorus (x2)

    General CommentI think Marty Walsh about hits it. Respectfully, I disagree with any "sadness" being felt in sentiments here. There's maybe some minor league lamenting going on, but most of this is done in good fun.

    "What have they done with the fat ones, the bald and the goateed?" That's pretty much a tip off that this isn't an exercise in pathos and sadness.
