Ode to a Schmuck..."Listenin' to the Jeers"

For those of you who happen to be fans of Steely Dan (as The Peerless is) and relish the chance to bash a former Cap who happens to play for the next opponent, we offer you some lyrics to help you carry a tune on the way to work this morning...












Your everlasting career
It’ll soon be fading fast
So you grab a piece of Broadway
That you think is gonna last
You wouldn’t know a diamond
If you held it in your hand
The things you think are precious
I can’t understand

Chorus:
Think of Jagr though the years
Playin’ up on the top line
Are you listenin’ to the jeers
Have you had enough of mine

They’ve been callin’ you a genius
Since you were young and lean
In all the time we’ve watched you
You’ve been carvin’ out our spleen
The three years in DC
Didn’t turn out like we planned
The things that pass for heart
I can’t understand

Chorus:
Think of Jagr though the years
Playin’ up on the top line
Are you listenin’ to the jeers
Have you had enough of mine

Ted spent a lot of money
And we spent a lot of time
The games you played on F Street
Just weren’t worth a dime
After all the things you’ve done for years
You didn’t give a damn
We’ll boo each time you touch the puck
You can understand
