Information about the song

L ivan makes his living on the mound
He calls his brother Duque
Cause he likes the name
But the Angels simply wore the brothers down.

Livan, Livan missed the strike zone
He walks a few they say
He gets too high a pitch count
And then the hitters start to make him pay

He was done when Dusty reached the mound
One October night
When the Anaheim team scored four runs
Dusty said "You're gone.
Please don't trip over my son, tonight."

And he shall be Livan
And he shall have a good name
And he shall be Livan
But he could not pitch his game
And he shall be Livan
And he shall have a good name
He shall be Livan.

(Instrumental interlude)

Livan loads the bases in the third
And Garret's at the plate
He swings and hits the ball to right field
And Reggie Sanders gets there too late
The Angels, they end up scoring three runs
Putting Livan's team behind
Watch the rally monkey cheering,
While Livan's Giant fans all cry.

He was done when Dusty reached the mound
One October night
When the Anaheim team scored four runs
Dusty said "You're gone.
Please don't trip over my son, tonight."

And he shall be Livan
And he shall have a good name
And he shall be Livan
But he could not pitch his game
And he shall be Livan
And he shall have a good name
He shall be Livan.

And he shall be Livan
And he shall have a good name
And he shall be Livan
But he could not pitch his game
And he shall be Livan
And he shall have a good name
He shall be Livan.

October 28, 2002: Livan Hernandez was the starting pitcher for the Giants in Game 7 of the 2002 World Series. I promised myself that no matter what the outcome, I'd write about him to an Elton John tune about an individual with a similar first name.
