Mark Teixeira

A couple of Atlanta Braves fans at Auburn University wrote the following song after the Braves traded for Mark Teixiera, and what do you know? In this Internet age, where word spreads like wildfire, the Braves found out about it and invited the pair to perform at Turner Field August 31.

Here are the lyrics:

Four and a half games back and I don’t Te-care-a
You know why we got Mark Teixeira
Got a new Braves jersey that I’m gonna wear-a
And written on the back is Mark Teixeira
The Mets are scared cause their lead’s gonna narr-a
They’re lookin’ over their shoulder at Mark Teixeira

We got Fred McGriff back in ‘93
Hampton’s out cause of injury
Schuerholz smiles cause he is happy
And Bobby says, “Let’s go Mark T.”

The National League it just ain’t fair-a
The Atlanta Braves got Mark Teixeira
Chipper and Andruw make a mighty nice pair-a
Let’s make it a trio add Mark Teixeira
A side effect is mild hysteria
The medical reason is Mark Teixeira


Scott Thorman stinks and Julio was old
What did Shuerholz do? Must’ve sold his Sooouuulll

Pitchers beware cause he’s gonna scare ya
Throw him a strike now if you dare-a
He could probably steal on Yogi Berra
Biggest thing in Georgia since Scarlet O’Hara
If I were a woman I’d probably marry ya.

And that’s not gay cause its Mark Teixeira.
