Don't Start Cleo Lemon

The Dolphins are 0-8 and have a bye week before playing the Bills. Their starting Qb (Trent Green), starting running back (Ronnie Brown), and starting receiver (Chris Chambers) have either been injured for the year or in the case of Chambers traded. The last glimmer of hope is that their 26 year old rookie quarterback John Beck might be good. This is the same John Beck that the Dolphins used a 2nd round pick on. The same John Beck that was the reason that they passed on Brady Quinn and took Ted Ginn. It is time to give Beck a chance and see what he can do in an actual game.

In honor of that I have redid the lyrics to the song "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey to describe the current state of the Dolphins. To check out the actual lyrics of the song go to http://www.lyricsfreak.com/j/journey/dont+stop+believin_20075670.html

The fake song goes best if you have the actual song playing in the background and you sing over the words with the new words.

Don't Start Cleo Lemon

Just a small minded coordinator, named Malcolm "Cam" Cameron
He came to be the head coach for a team going nowhere fast
Just a country boy born and raised in Greenwood, Mississippi
He came to be a backup qb for a team going nowhere fast

A quarterback drafted in the 2nd round
The season starts and we don't hear a sound
I would smile if Beck was named the starter,
But the wait goes on and on and on

Dolphins fans waiting
Up and down South Beach
The Dolphins have been searching
Since Marino
Season's lost, people
Cameron stands there with no emotion
Refusing to make the move everyone knows is right.

Working hard to get their first win
Too bad against the Giants they could only score ten.
They should just just roll the dice
And start John Beck
The Patriots always win, The Dolphins always lose
But Dolphins fans weren't meant to sing the blues
The losing never ends
It just goes on and on and on and on.

Dolphins fans waiting
Up and down South Beach
The Dolphins have been searching
Since Marino
Season's lost, people
Cameron stands there with no emotion
Refusing to make the move everyone knows is right.

Don't start Cleo Lemon
Cam give Dolphins fans something to believe in.
Season's over, people

Don't start Cleo Lemon
Cam think about next season
Season over, perople

Don't start Cleo Lemon
Think about next season

Could you affix an audio clip of yourself singing this so that we can hear it?
Mark Packer (Billy's son) says that every time he hears that song, he thinks of The Sopranos final episode and cringes.

You absolutely need to record a clip. I say post it on uTube too. Maybe you can made the Extra Mustard (?) site on SI.
