Time for some more fun! Twins-oriented song parodies


Alright, so part of the fun of hanging out here at Twinkie Town (and SB Nation blogs in general) is the irreverence and fun we all have making jokes and references as we stick with our team through everything. For my money, sports often become more fun with random pop culture references that somehow work perfectly in context, as well as quirky humor in general.

On that note, few things hit the spot like perfectly re-tooling a song with a set of parody lyrics. And tonight it hit me: Why not do a thread of Twins-based song parodies? Post your own lyrics to whatever song you feel like regarding the Twins universe, and include links to the original tune and lyrics. Being the gigantic music geek that I am, I could re-write dozens of songs popular and obscure to address the Twinkies, but I'll just go with the one that comes to mind quickest right now. Lyrics after the jump.

My entry: "Smells Like Twins Spirit" (Sung to the tune of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana. It came out a month before the greatest Series ever after all.). This may not turn out great considering how random and incoherent the original lyrics famously are, but it's stuck in my head tonight and I was able to insert a few memes/inside jokes (and name-dropping that fits the original rhythm). Also references abound to the current series/standings.

(Intro and Verse)

Pile up the runs, and wear a 'stache

It's fun when Punto pounds your ass

We're never bored, rest assured

Oh no, Bert dropped a dirty word

(Morneau, Morneau, Morneau, more now) x 3

Morneau, Morneau, Morneau

(Chorus)

Duensing's lights out, Mauer's dangerous

We're in first now, try and beat us

Hawk is stupid, and outrageous

We're in first now, try and beat us

Carl Pavano, Liriano

Jason Repko, Nicky Punto

YEAH! (Guitar lick) Hey! (Guitar lick) Yay!

(End chorus)

(Verse)

Mark Kotsays' worse, and Jimmer's best

Chicago's gift has left us blessed

Our little group has always been

And always will until next year

(Morneau, Morneau, Morneau, more now) x 3

Morneau, Morneau, Morneau

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse)

And I forget how Dome Dogs taste

So yeah, I guess it makes me smile

We've got Denard, Hardy's fine

Oh well, whatever, nevermind

(Morneau, Morneau, Morneau, more now) x 3

Morneau, Morneau, Morneau

(Repeat chorus)

 

So there's my silly pile of nonsense (which I guess could work considering how random the original lyrics are when actually read), but it was fun. Helps to know the song like the back of your hand...

 

Love to see what you guys come up with!
