Dickey-o: Knuckla's Paradise



Dickey-o_medium

R.A. Dickey-o's first hit song, "Knuckla's Paradise"

As I walk through the tunnel to go pitch for the Mets

I take a look at this team, and realize it's a mess

As a journeyman pitcher, I found a place to belong

Even though even my doctor says my ulnar ligament is gone.

But I ain't ever walked a man who didn't deserve it

Knucklerballer with control, you know that's unheard of

You better watch how you be talkin'

You won't be walkin'

And you and your homies ain't gonna make me balk

Excuse me for laughing, cause it's not a joke

They strike out swinging, cause I pulled the rope

Fool, I'm the type of G all the little Dickheads wanna be like

On the mound, every night

Throwing strike after strike

 

Throw fastballs once or twice, livin' in a knuckla's paradise

Buy Dickey merchandise, livin' in a knuckla's paradise

Throw fastballs once or twice, livin' in a knuckla's paradise

Buy Dickey merchandise, livin' in a knuckla's paradise

 

Look at this rotation, they got me facin'

But I'm gonna take a hack; I am good with the bat

Gotta do it all for this damn team

Being R.A. Dickey is harder than it seem

I'm an educated dude with pitchin' on my mind

Knuckleball in my hand, and a gleam in my eye

Catcher's mitt locked in, strike comin' at'cha

All my pitches are down, so don't arouse my anger, fool

A hit ain't nothin' but a damn swing away

Knucklers life live do or do, what can I say?

I'm 35, with an ERA that is under three

Can I do it again, yeah, I think so.

 

[CHORUS]

 

Winning helps the clubhouse, the clubhouse likes the winning

Batter after batter, inning after inning

Everybody's K'ing, and half of them are looking

Hey- what's goin' on in the kitchen?

What is big Mike Pelfrey cookin'?

They say I'm gonna lose, but

ain't nobody beat me

They don't understand that I'm R.A. Dickey

I throw strike one

I throw strike two

I throw strike three

Have fun walking back to the dugout, fool.

 

[CHORUS]
