Saints vs. Jets 2013: Ode to the Jets ("Leaving on a Jet Plane" Parody)

New, comments

In the spirit of friendly competitive fandom... the songwriter strikes again! This time, a song marking the Saints' first trip of the season to MetLife stadium.

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

As the Saints head into their eighth game of the season, we give you this week's song. As can be expected, it was inspired by this Sunday's game against Rob Ryan's svelte twin brother, in the Jets' home stadium; though this one reaches back a bit, as well. And for our visiting Jets fans: this is all in good fun. Here's looking forward to a good game day!

As usual, I've embedded a video with the original song... in case you can't get the tune in your head.

Enjoy!

Watching Sunday's Jets Game
("Leaving on a Jet Plane" parody)

All their pads are on, they're ready to go
Another win knocks on the door
Galette is suited up to make men cry

The Jets will is breakin', on Sunday morn
The Saints defense, is again reborn
Already the Lombardi is in sight

Brees passes and scores again
Saints will post a win again
Doesn't matter if it's rain or snow
So be watching Sunday's Jets game
The Black and Gold are stakin' a claim
Oh, babe... it's such a show

There's so many years the Saints were down
But then Sean Payton came to town
And earned the team's first Super Bowl ring.

Every time we play, the Saints can win
Every year we pray: do it again
And give us all one more reason to sing

Brees passes and scores again
Saints will post a win again
Doesn't matter if it's rain or snow
So be watching Sunday's Jets game
The Black and Gold are stakin' a claim
Oh, babe... it's such a show

Now the time has come for Jimmy.
One more time: TD for Kenny.
Add Sproles and Moore; the Jets will rue the day.

Hawthorne gets another sack
Cam puts Geno Smith on his back
And Junior scoops another takeaway...

Brees passes and scores again
Saints will post a win again
Doesn't matter if it's rain or snow
So be watching Sunday's Jets game
The Black and Gold are stakin' a claim
Oh, babe... it's such a show

So be watching Sunday's Jets game
The Black and Gold are stakin' a claim
Oh, babe... it's such a show...

(PS. Yes, we know it's not literally an Ode to the Jets. The irony is part of the gag.)
