Hey, Joe: A Song Parody (With Apologies To Jimi Hendrix)

Tim Jamison is still angry that Delaware ripped off Michigan's helmet design.

Hey Joe, whatcha doin’ with that ball in your hand?
Hey Joe, I said, whatcha doin’ with that ball in your hand?

I’m throwin’ away another good season.
You know, postseason games are much harder, man.
Yeah, I’m throwin’ away another good season.
You know, postseason games are much harder, man.

Huh! You ain’t Joe Cool!

Hey Joe, I heard you play much better now
In front of your home crowd.
Hey Joe, I heard you play so much better now
In front of that Baltimore crowd, yeah.

Yeah!

Yes, I did play better,
But that’s before the playoffs came ‘round, came ‘round town
Huh, yes, I did play better
You know, back before the playoffs came ‘round town
Now I’m under the gun,
And it’s harder!

[spoken over 16-bar blues riff]
Alright, go choke one more time again, baby!
Yeah!
Oh, ground it!
Oh, we're done!
[/spoken part]

Hey Joe, who you gonna throw to now?
Where you gonna throw?
Hey Joe, I said,
Where you gonna throw to now?
Where you gonna throw?

I’m throwin’ into coverage,
Hope that DB gets outta my way.
Alright, I’m throwin’ into coverage,
Hope that safety ain’t watchin’ me!
Ain’t no Commissioner gonna,
He ain’t gonna hand me the Lombardi.
[spoken] You better believe it right now! Watch how I throw! [/spoken]

Hey, Joe
You better check on down!

Wasted bye, baby!

Hey, hey Joe... [fade out]
