All We Want is Life Beyond the Metrodome

I’ve been busy and not written for several months, and for that I do apologize.  Alternate lyrics for this song popped into my head this afternoon and I decided I had to write an entire alternate version of it.

Sung to the tune of “We Don’t Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)”
Written by T. Britten and G. Lyle and originally performed by Tina Turner
Alternate lyrics written by D. Segler

All of the years here
All of those games here
So much back luck, mistakes, and pain

Today’s the last game
Just twenty-seven outs
Until we leave this house of shame

And I wondered if we were gonna change our luck here
Living under the dread till nothing else remained

We don’t need another series
We don’t want to see the baggies
All we want is life beyond the Metrodome

Can’t wait till next year
Grass on a new field
Outdoors with no more Astroturf

Don’t care if there’s snow
Don’t care if there’s rain
Can’t be much worse than our time here

And I wondered if we were gonna change our luck here
Living under the dread till nothing else remained

White Sox fans all say

We don’t need another series
We don’t want to see the baggies
All we want is life beyond the Metrodome

No more will we have to come here
No more worry for us
No more frustration for us here
Good riddence bad luck
Finally we are leaving

We don’t need another series
We don’t want to see the baggies
All we want is life beyond the Metrodome

White Sox fans all say

We don’t need another series
We don’t want to see the baggies
All we want is life beyond the Metrodome
