What’s Going On

Sean C from Illinois penned this take on Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On and left it in the comments. I thought it deserved a little more prominence:


Tigers, Tigers
Not too many of you trying
Batters batters batters
There’s far too many of you dying
You know we’ve got to find a way
To DL Sheffield – yesterday

Pitchers, pitchers
Know they’d better strike them out
Fielding is the answer
For only gloves can conquer doubt
You know that you can rest assured
We need back Brandon Inge at third

Runners on
And runners gone
Don’t punish me
With a 6-4-3
Come on score some runs
And get it done
We’ll win the game
We’ll win the game
Tell me who won the game
I’ll tell you who won the game

Tigers, Tigers
What a rapid fall from grace
But who are we to judge them
Simply ’cause they’re in last place?
Wonder how long it’s gonna be
Until Jim says “That’s it for me”

Hitting’s weak
And pitching’s sick
The starters can’t
Make it through the 6th
Come on bulllpen guys
Oft criticized
Don’t blow the game
Don’t blow the game
Jonesy don’t blow the game
Guillen’s error blew the game
