Biafra Jello — Mascot Mania

(Jello Biafra/Mojo Nixon)
When I was young
Saw football games
At the great big stadium
Could tell the fans
>From out of town
By the clown suits they had on
20,000 red cowboy hats
Means Cornhuskers to you
Mickey Mouse beans
With tiger ears
Shows you cheer ol’ Mizzou
Let’s not forget the Razorbacks
>From the U. of Arkansas
With plastic pig snouts
On their heads
Soon eeeing, «How ’bout them Hawgs?»
Mascot Mania
Mascot Mania
Mascot Mania
Mascot Mania
I work all week
At a job I hate
Where everything goes wrong
Weekend’s what I live for
To your church I belong
I cross the street in San Francisco
When a chump comes out of a bar
Yellin’, «Forty-Fuckin’ Niiners, man»
With his gold and red jacket on
In Cleveland throwing dog biscuits
Shows how much ya love them Browns
While Bronco fans just hang their heads
When the Super Bowl comes around
Raider jacket dollars
Got the White Sox wearin’ black
Statues of Joe Paterno
Sold in gift shops at Penn State
That’s Mascot Mania
Don’t make fun of religious rituals
In any place
Lord help you if you laugh
While they do this with a straight face
Outside of the United States
It gets even more bizarre
In Tokyo they got a baseball team
They call the Carp
The Salmonnbellies are the pride
Of New Westminster, B.C.
C’mon, Greg Wrckman, what’s a Hoosier?
And why do they throw chairs?
When Sudbury, Ontario’s
Hockey team scores a goal
They drag a stuffed wolf
Cross the ice
A fan shot at it once, ya know
That’s Mascot Mania
Blue Streak
Horned Frogs
Long Horns
Someone better tell Tipper Gore
‘Bout the names of these here teams
Tar Heels
Blue Devils
Crimson Tide
Real Indians
Sick of Redskins
And Tomahawk chops
It seems to me
That to stay mean
These names should change with time
The NEw York Muggers
Detroit Murders
And Chicago Mob
Boston Bigots
Texas Swindlers
And the L.A. Cops
Miami Drugs
New Jersey Dumps
Take on the Denver Smog
Seattle Fads
New Orleans Hoods
Milwaukee Cannibals
San Diego Jarheads
ANd the Arizona Drought
That’s Mascot Mania
Go Carp, go!
Salmonbellies rule!
Hit ’em harder cops!
But a hockey team called the Mighty Ducks?
Aw, man.
Heads explode when Dallas Oswalds
Meet Washington Bribes
Home team bands play «Cop Killer»
When L.A. comes to town
Pittsburgh Polluters
Houston Drive-Bys
Don’t stir near the fear
When the Florida Abortion Bombers
Meets the San Francisco Queers
That’s Mascot Mania
Anywhere ya go
The game’s the same old thing
Bet your money on the Bribes
They always win
