Information about the song

(Instrumental introduction)
Play all night and we score one run
October come and we want go home
Pitchers don't have any fun
October come and we want go home

Fred, we say Fre-e-ed-o
October come and we want go home
Fred, we say Fre-e-ed-o
October come and we want go home

Come, Mr. Jim Duquette, get me some outfielders
October come and we want go home
Come, Mr. Jim Duquette, get me some outfielders
October come and we want go home

(Instrumental interlude)

It's six games, seven games, eight games, LOST!
October come and we want go home
Six games, seven games, eight games, LOST!
October come and we want go home

Fred, we say Fre-e-ed-o
October come and we want go home
Fred, we say Fre-e-ed-o
October come and we want go home

Come, Mr. Jim Duquette, get me some outfielders
October come and we want go home
Come, Mr. Jim Duquette, get me some outfielders
October come and we want go home

(Instrumental interlude)

We don't hope to win the game-o
October come and we want go home
When the outfield has Cedeno
October come and we want go home

Fred, we say Fre-e-ed-o
October come and we want go home
Fred, we say Fre-e-ed-o
October come and we want go home

Come, Mr. Jim Duquette, get me some outfielders
October come and we want go home
Come, Mr. Jim Duquette, get me some outfielders
October come and we want go home

(Instrumental ending)

September 22, 2003: As this song was written, the Mets had one victory sandwiched between a pair of eight game losing streaks. Mets fans couldn't wait for the season to end, so they no longer would have to watch Roger Cedeno misplay routine fly balls until 2004.
