Zero to Hero (R.A. Dickey)


R.A. Dickey is my favorite Mets pitcher. Hercules is my favorite Disney movie. Put them together, and, well...

Knuckleball

R.A.'s on a roll

Player of the month in every Mets opinion poll

What a pro

He can pitch a show

Point him at a batter and he might pitch a no-no

He was a no one (Zero, zero)

Now he is awesome (He's a hero)

Here was a kid with

No UCL

From zero to hero

He gives ‘em hell

Zero to hero

Just as well

 

When he pitched

The batters bitched

With "D'oh!"s and "Ahs"

With MS Paintz (Not Photoshop)

 

Educated was he in Tennessee

R.A. just loved to learn

Though newly rich and famous

He could still fill out his tax return

 

R.A.men

There he goes again

Should be undefeated

A perfect ten for ten

Folk lined up

Just to watch him pitch

This former first round draft pick

Has finally found his niche

 

Dickey, he comes

He sees, he conquers

The people at Citi

Were going bonkers

He's got the moxie, brains, and spunk

From zero to hero

Batter's distraught

From zero to hero

Who woulda thought?

 

Who puts the RA in really awesome?

It's Dickey!

Slow pitch much better than Casey Fossum?

It's Dickey

Isn't he cool

No one braver

When on the mound

A game changer

It's Dickey, It's Dickey

It's Dickey, It's Dickey

It's Dickey, It's Dickey


Bless his soul

Kilimanjaro

Will be defeated

Fighting crime

And the nicest guy

Not conceited

He was a nothin'

A zero, zero

Now he's head honcho

He's a hero


His pitches don't let the batter succeed

From zero to hero

Dickey is a hero

Now he's a hero

Yes indeed.
