Lorde's "Royals" rewritten for the 2014 Royals season

Jamie Squire

Well, I decided to give the Lorde song a shot for a parody. I have the lyrics mostly written, now time to hit the studio and see about recording something. What do you guys think? Here's the Lorde song if you haven't heard it yet: http://youtu.be/nlcIKh6sBtc It might help to have that playing in the background while you read these lyrics if you don't know the song well.



I've never seen the Royals have success.
I hope they one day win a ring, like the movies.
But I'm still proud, I will confess.
We're a baseball town, no Detroit envy.

But every year it's like:
These guys
They suck
Here we are in last place
Next Year
Big Trade
How is this guy our Ace?

We don't care, we're playing for the Yanks in our dreams

But now this season's like:
Smart moves
Good deals
Look we got Aoki
Omar
Vargas
No more Getz or Frenchy

Now we care, we're all caught up in the love affair.

The Kansas City Royals (Royals)
Wins don't run in our blood,
This kind of thing just ain't for us, we've really only seen us suck.
But we could be rulers (rulers)
First place in the Central
And baby we'll rule, we'll rule, we'll rule, we'll rule
In 2014 (two thousand fourteen)

So this year Dayton's cracked the code
He spends his dollars in the way, that he ought to
And everyone who knows us knows
That we don't do this, we don't have much money

Cause every year it's like:
These guys
They suck
Here we are in last place
Next Year
Big Trade
How is this guy our Ace?

We don't care, we're playing for the Yanks in our dreams

But now this season's like:
Smart moves
Good deals
Look we got Aoki
Omar
Vargas
No more Getz or Frenchy

Now we care, we're all caught up in the love affair.

The Kansas City Royals (Royals)
Wins don't run in our blood,
This kind of thing just ain't for us, we've really only seen us suck.
But we could be rulers (rulers)
First place in the Central
And baby we'll rule, we'll rule, we'll rule, we'll rule
In 2014 (two thousand fourteen)

Ohh oh oh, ohh oh oh, oh oh
We're better than we ever dreamed
And we could even win this thing

Ohh oh oh, ohh oh oh, oh oh
This team is finally almost there,
We're all caught up in the love affair.

The Kansas City Royals (Royals)
Wins don't run in our blood,
This kind of thing just ain't for us, we've really only seen us suck.
But we could be rulers (rulers)
First place in the Central
And baby we'll rule, we'll rule, we'll rule, we'll rule
In 2014 (two thousand fourteen)
