Information about the songs

(Instrumental introduction)
Leavin' home, out on the road
I've changed teams before
Ridin' along in my private jet plane
With no worries about my home
But poverty seems so far away
And Fern Cuza's got my deal all done
Theo's tryin' to make me stay
It's time I've got to be movin' on

Viva Pedro Martinez
The money got him carried away
Viva Pedro Martinez
Shea is where he's going to play

(Short instrumental interlude)

Goodbye to all the "idiots"
Goodbye Fenway and the taverns
I've got to go out and make my pay
I might be rich but turn into Tom Glavine
But my heart reflects on the playoffs
When we beat the Yankees in seven
Ridin' high dollar signs in my eyes
You know I may play here in hell
But I achieved some heaven

Viva Pedro Martinez
The money got him carried away
Viva Pedro Martinez
Shea is where he's going to play

(Short instrumental interlude)

Cuttin ties in New England town
Media's comin' down
The questions keep on keeping on
And my twisted head keeps a spinnin' around
I left Boston with some hesitation
You know that I can plainly see
That I don't want to get caught up with any of those
Anal fans shouting "Who is your Daddy"

Viva Pedro Martinez
The money got him carried away
Viva Pedro Martinez
Shea is where he's going to play

Viva Pedro Martinez
The money got him carried away
Viva Pedro Martinez
Shea is where he's going to play

Oh, Oh Viva Pedro Martinez
New York is now my home
Oh, Oh Viva Pedro Martinez
On Shea's mound's where I belong

Information about the songs

(Instrumental introduction)
Omar was Steve's man until he was a goner
Duquette got to be GM
Went to Canada, but had sights on returning
To his digs in Flushing land

He's back, he's back
He's back to where he once belonged
He's back ,he's back
He's back to where he once belonged

Ace Pedro Martinez thought he'd stay a Red Sox
But Omar had other plans
All the wine and dining took place in the DR
And Minaya got his man

He's back, he's back
He's back to where he once belonged
He's back ,he's back
He's back to where he once belonged

(Instrumental interlude)

He's back, he's back
He's back to where he once belonged
He's back ,he's back
He's back to where he once belonged

Ace Pedro Martinez thought he'd stay a Red Sox
But Omar had other plans
All the wine and dining took place in the DR
And Minaya got his man

He's back, he's back
He's back to where he once belonged
He's back ,he's back
He's back to where he once belonged

He's back to where he once belonged

(Spoken)
Oooohh, get back Minaya
Pedro is waiting for you
Wearing his orange blue
And his hair on fire
You're back home Minaya

(Sung)
He's back, he's back
He's back to where he once belonged
He's back ,he's back
He's back to where he once belonged

He's back to where he once belonged

December 18, 2004: I did not write either of these songs. They were submitted to me by friends after the Mets signed pitcher Pedro Martinez to a free agent contract. Please let my friends Mookster (Viva Pedro Martinez) and Sylvia (Get Back) know how much you enjoy their work.
