A Gershwin Goodbye to the 2016 Astros

Why 2016 Almost Was and Never Was the Year of the Houston Astros

Sung to the George Gershwin Tune of ….

“It Ain’t Necessarily So”

It ain’t necessarily so

It ain’t necessarily so

The things that spell liable – in baseball’s root bible

They ain’t necessarily so

 

Little Jose is small – but oh my

Little Jose is small – but oh my

He slew old Goliath – the pitching ace dieth

Little Jose is small – but oh my

He’s the one with – the batting champ eye

 

Evan Gattis hits hard – like a whale

Evan Gattis hits hard – like a whale

He first made his home in – the DH abdomen

Evan Gattis hits hard – like a whale

When he misses – it’s always a bale

 

Senor Carlos is tall – he can fly

Senor Carlos is tall – he can fly

Run or throw, field – or hittin’

This cat ain’t no kitten

Senor Carlos is tall – as the sky

 

Georgie Springer’s got game – so it seems

Georgie Springer’s got game – so it seems

When he plays like he ought-er  – he hits the ball harder

Georgie Springer’s still building up steam

On his way to fulfilling – our dream

 

Dallas Keuchel pitched great – won the Cy

Dallas Keuchel pitched great – won the Cy

This year he turned over – like an aging Land Rover

And he fell on his sword – with a sigh

As we kiss our sweet pennant – goodbye

 

We could go through – the whole – GD roster

But Bad habits- for certain – we’d foster

We don’t blame the players – for layers and layers

To explain why our team’s – an imposter

Too little – too late – says it faster.
