Intro: G G


86 summers gone by, Bambino put a hex on the Bean

We were living on a tear and a sigh, in the shadow of the Bronx Machine

Man, you could feel it smolder, the whole town had an attitude

Then they get a little chip on the shoulder, say something that's downright rude

Oh, damn them Yankees, outspending everybody two to one

Picking up on the cream of the crop, stealing everyone's favorite son


Angels of Fenway hear our prayers, we have been patient, we have been jacent


Grandmama was a Fenway fan, even after Grandad died

I still remember her holding my hand, taking me along for the ride

She was born in 19 18, last year that the Red Sox won

Back the when they sold the Babe, something that they never shoulda ever have done


One more!

Hey Nanna can I have another Coke?

Here come the hot dog ma—--n, look at that, his bat just broke

Gee, that's got to kill his hand

Riding out on the Green Line, watching the town go by

Nanna made another Red Sox fan, till the day I die


That was back in sixty-five, doesn't seem like a long time ago

Grandmama keeping hope alive, watch them win in double-o-four

Oh my God, it was beyond belief, down 3 needing 4 in a row

Holding on by the skin of our teeth, like a hungry dog on a bone


Angels of Fenway give them peace, they have been patient, Red Sox nation

Last Verse:

The whole world held it's breath, people got down on their knees

Waiting for the sudden death, praying to heaven for hell to freeze

Nanna watched from her hospital bed, she was there till the end of the race

I couldn't hear the last word she said but she was lying there with a smile on her face

Just a little smile on her face

Doesn't seem like long time ago
