Information about the song

He would not say why he stole the glove
Ripped off teammates never give you love
Stealing wasnít bright
Now heís out of sight
And so it goes
Just like Pete Rose

Goodbye, Rube Rivera
Everyone says shame on you
Even old man Yogi Berra
No oneís gonna miss you...

The GM came to him and asked him why
How could he be such a stupid guy
I donít know if he claimed
That he was really framed
But his jobís lost
At such a cost

Goodbye, Rube Rivera
Everyone says shame on you
Even old man Yogi Berra
No oneís gonna miss you...

Spent too much on booze, I heard him say
Stole the glove and now heís sent away
Stealing is a crime
Lose your job and lose a lot of dimes
But do no time

Goodbye, Rube Rivera
Everyone says shame on you
Even old man Yogi Berra
No oneís gonna miss you...

Goodbye, Rube Rivera
Everyone says shame on you
Even old man Yogi Berra
No oneís gonna miss you...

Of course, stealing Derek Jeter's bat and glove didn't exactly enhance Rivera's standing with his employer or his teammates.
