Brett Favre 3rd Annual Retirement Tour

 

On the occasion of the estimable Mr. Favre's triumphant return to professional football, and the beginning of Minnesota's long winter of discontent, let us remember some of the greatest moments of his previous tours--beginning with the greatest of them all.


BrettFavrian Rhapsody

An oratorio in four parts, based on events taking place on the floor of the Superdome on or about the evening of Sunday, 24th January, in the year 2010.

Music: Farrokh Bulsara     Lyrics: MtnExileToo & MtnExile

The parts: Brett Favre, a Vikings quarterback; Ole, a Vikings fan; Vikings chorus, Saints chorus

Ole

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
Thought by a landslide that we'd capture the NFC.
Blitzes galore, look up to the score and see...

Brett Favre
Ole

 

I need a po-boy (Po-boy), I need some sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go, come what may, gonna throw
Anyone but Brett Favre doesn't really matter to me...
To me.

Brett Favre

Ole, just killed your dream
Should have run it, but instead, Interception! Now it's dead.
Ole, we had almost won,
But now I've gone and thrown the ball away!
Ole, oo-oo-oo-oooh...
Didn't mean to make you cry!
If I'm not back again this time next season,
Carry on, carry on, like Tarvaris really matters...

Too late, my line has gone,
The black and gold surround, Here I sit, pants on the ground.
I know, everybody: we'll run the ball!
So we call an end-around...and there's McCray!
Ole, oo-oo-oo-oooh (Anyone but Brett Favre...)
I don't wanna die! I sometimes wish I'd never come back at all!

 

[Bobby McCray solo]

Brett Favre
Vikings Chorus
Saints Chorus

I see a giant silhouetto of a man,
Hutchinson, Hutchinson, will you keep these guys off me?
Fujita and Shanle! Where the hell's Visanthe? Flee!
(Sedrick Ellis!) Sedrick Ellis! (Sedrick Ellis!) Sedrick Ellis! Sedrick Ellis! Gotta go!
Geronimo-o-o-o-o!
I need a po-boy, no one protects me.
He needs protection, we want a penalty!
Spare him his life from this brutality!

Easy come, easy go, should I make the throw?
Good God Brett! No! We will not let you throw! (Let him throw!)
Good God Brett! We will not let you throw! (Let him throw!)
Good God Brett! We will not let you throw! (Let me throw!)
Will not let you throw! (Let me throw!)
Will not let you throw! (Let me throw!)
(Never never never let you throw!) Ah-ah-ah-ah!
(No, no, no, no, no, no, no!)
Oh Tracy Porter! Tracy Porter! Tracy Porter, let it go!
GW dialed up the Cover-2 on me, on me, on me!

Ole

So you think you can plunder what should have been mine?
So you think you can party and leave me to whine? [Editor's note: for eight solid months and counting]
Oh, baby! I'm a big crying baby!

Why didn't he take, why didn't he just take a knee?

 

[Garrett Hartley solo]

Ole

Brett Favre really matters, Anyone can see
Brett Favre really matters
Brett Favre really matters
To me...

Saints Chorus

(See you in Sep-tem-berrrrrrr...)
