Information about the song

Up by three runs in the ninth when he entered the ballgame
Heíd get the side out and so we could finish the sweep
Then up came Jordan
We ended up losing the game after Jordan went deep

My my my Armando
Why why why Armando
I could see, the pennant wasnít to be
A game that was won now was lost indubitably.

Then six days later the need was much greater than ever
Started the last of the ninth with the team up by four
He couldnít close it
And seven runs later the team was flat down on the floor

My my my Armando
Why why why Armando
You get your saves, except if itís Yankees or Braves
Iím sorry Armando, you just put the team in its grave

(Instrumental interlude)

He couldnít close it
And seven runs later the team was flat down on the floor

My my my Armando
Why why why Armando
You get your saves, except if itís Yankees or Braves
Iím sorry Armando, you just put the team in its grave
Iím sorry Armando, you just put the team in its grave
