A Song for Pre-Season Camp

Submitted by Blazefire on August 8th, 2010 at 8:12 PM

To: Styx: Blue Collar Man

Give me the ball,
Give me the summer heat,
Give me a line that can drive.
Just a freshman deep
on the depth chart now,
My God I've hardly arrived!

My coach and my trainer
my teammates and friends
I've heard support in their words
Well I've got the desire
and I've got the skill
I don't have to run with the thirds!

I'll take those two a days,
and nights with the film.
Keeping my mind on the season!
If it takes all that
to be more than I am,
Well I'm gonna be a Michigan Man!

Press been making statements
they can't defend.
Been reprehensible man.
And the NCAA been crawling around
But like it or not...

I'll take those two a days
and nights with the film
keeping my hate on the buckeyes!
If it takes all I've got
to be all that I can,
well I'm gonna be a Michigan man!

Keeping my feet planted on field turf!
Where second team is only a touchdown away!
Starting, now, can it be all that I heard it was?
One big play and maybe I'm already there!

I'll take those two a days
and nights with the film
working to learn all the playbook!
I hope it takes all my life
to be just what I am!
I'm gonna be a Michigan,
Gotta be a Michigan,
Baby I'm a Michigan Man!


I don't know if I'll make this a continuing theme or not, but for now, I'm having a TON of fun. I'm happy to take requests on songs to convert if I can find a theme for them, but keep in mind that I'm now pretty much deaf, so the song will either need to be one that I already know, or one that's easy to catch the tune of, so I can make sure the words match up pretty well to be sung.

If you all get tired of it, tell me to bugger off!

Nicely done.  Keep up the good work.


Now, for me personally, I always preferred some angry music before games or workouts.  Hopefully some of the guys on the team listen to things like these NSFW ditties, and are ready to tear some teams up this year:

Concerns the issues with the kicking game. Sure, we've heard it all before here on MGoBlog, but it was a bona fide story about the team, and actual football, and practice (without mention of, well, you know) and not the usual blah blah.

We're in the home stretch, fellas. Rain seems to be letting up and the sun's starting to peek through the clouds.
