Losing Like Before
Sung to "When I'm Sixty-Four"


Seeing them fold will give you a scare
As you wonder how
Everyone is blaming Bobby Valentine
At press briefings look at him whine

Playing the Braves and losing all three
Slamming shut the door
Looking at layoffs for missing the playoffs
Losing like before

Choked in Philly too
And in the press I heard my tenure is through

Think that I'm happy, liking to lose
You might not be wrong
Think that I had better find a place to hide
Just like last year look at us slide
Needing a win and watching us bleed
Lose a couple more
Looking at layoffs for missing the playoffs
Losing like before

All the money we have spent you think that we could get it right
Maybe next year
We can make some trades
New players, two or three
My job I might save

Losing is so hard, job's on the line
Hoping we'll pull through
Rip me in the papers all they have to say
New York Mets are fading away
Loser in Texas, guess it's the norm
Loser evermore
Looking at layoffs for missing the playoffs
Losing like before
