Information about the song

(Guitar intro)
Well, Omar Minaya got up from his desk and shut his old office door
He picked up his phone, and after the tone, he dialed on down to Bal'more
He picked up a stiff, he picked up a stiff
The batters never whiff 'cause he.picked up a stiff
Then Omar look down and cursed at the ground, when he heard from Anna Benson
So he shipped her mouth and her husband south where he might find redemption
Well, it's on its way, not sure how far it's goin,
It's on its way, over the fence and beyond the street.

It's still flyin', all the way to Corona
When Jorge Julio's pitch leaves the ballyard
When Jorge Julio's pitch leaves the ballyard

(Whistling interlude)
When the season came 'round, he stood on the mound
And he tried to throw a slider
The batters did swing, the balls took wing
And just climbed far and higher
Well, it's on its way, not sure how far it's goin,
It's on its way, over the fence and beyond the street.

It's still flyin', all the way to Corona
When Jorge Julio's pitch leaves the ballyard
When Jorge Julio's pitch leaves the ballyard
When Jorge Julio's pitch leaves the ballyard

(Musical interlude to fade out)

April 15, 2006: During the off-season, the Mets traded pitcher Kris Benson, and his wife, Anna, to Baltimore in exchange for relief pitcher Jorge Julio. Anna's inappropriate comments and inappropriate attire at Mets' functions in addition to her husband's mediocrity prompted Omar Minaya to make the deal. Julio, whose career has been in rapid decline, has shown no signs of turning it around in his first four appearance as a Met. In less than 4 innings, he has allowed 11 hits and 11 runs, including 3 homers. Yes, I know I recently used this Paul Simon tune when Julio Franco was signed, but I felt the urge to use it again.
