Information about the song

(Lo-o-o-ng musical introduction)
There's an old man who calls himself Don Zimmer
He's the old man that sits on Torre's bench
He got up one day and took a swing at Pedro
A disgraceful move that caused a stench

Old man Zimmer
That old man Zimmer
He must know somethin'
He don't do nothin'
He just keeps rollin'
He keeps on rollin' along.

He don't teach hittin'
He don't teach catchin'
He's either nappin'
Or else he's scratchin'
But old man Zimmer
He just keeps rollin' along.

You and me
we work our jobs
When we get home
we watch that slob
On the bench
He talks to Joe
Wants sympathy
Just because he's old

I get weary
Of Yankees winnin'
They keep on spendin'
And George is grinnin'
But old man Zimmer,
He just keeps rollin' along.

He woke up
And looked around
And he saw Roger
Clemens frown
So out he went
And swung at Pedro
And got pushed down
That bench potato

I get weary
Of Yankees winnin'
They keep on spendin'
And George is grinnin'
But old man Zimmer
He just keeps rollin' along.

October 13, 2003: I read something on line entiled Old Man Zimmer after his incident with Pedro Martinez in the 2003 American League Championship Series, and I couldn't resist taking an old show tune and adapting it.
