"Winners" Hockey related parody of Royals by Lorde


Flyers have officially locked in the third seed for the playoffs and the Maple Leafs have been officially eliminated so I thought this was an appropriate time to share this with the hockey world. I wrote it after the Flyers were decked 7-0 by the Caps and things were looking pretty bleak. The Flyers obviously turned things around and made the playoffs so I am donating the songs to dejected Leafs fans at this point. Without further adieu I submit for your approval my own version of Royals by Lorde

"Winners" Lorde Stanley

I’ve never seen Lord Stanley in the flesh
I cut my teeth on hockey gold in movies
And I’m not proud of my team
In a torn-up town
No hockey envy

But every player’s like hattrick, five hole, shooting at an empty net
Can’t pass, can’t score, can’t even beat the jets
We don’t care
We’re winning trophies in our dreams
But everybody’s like playoffs, win streaks, turn this ship around
Shutout three times, rock bottom can’t be found?
We don’t care
We’ll call it a rebuilding year

And we’ll never be winners (winners)
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of club just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of cup
Let me have your draft picks (draft picks)
We can call the first pick
And baby we’ll draft, we’ll draft, we’ll draft
Let us live that fantasy

The fans and I we’ve cracked the code
We shout our boos from the stands at the powerplay
And everyone who knows us knows we ain’t fine with this
You better earn your money

But every player’s like hattrick, five hole, shooting at an empty net
Can’t pass, can’t score, can’t even beat the jets
We don’t care
We’re winning trophies in our dreams
But everybody’s like playoffs, win streaks, turn this ship around
Shutout three times, rock bottom can’t be found?
We don’t care
We’ll call it a rebuilding year

And we’ll never be winners (winners)
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of club just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of cup
Let me have your draft picks (draft picks)
We can call the first pick
And baby we’ll draft, we’ll draft, we’ll draft
Let us live that fantasy

Ooh Ooh Oh
We’re worse than we ever dreamed
And I’m not in love with being creamed
Ooh Ooh Oh
Life ain’t great without a win
We are caught up in our own chagrin

And we’ll never be winners (winners)
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of club just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of cup
Let me have your draft picks (draft picks)
We can call the first pick
And baby we’ll draft, we’ll draft, we’ll draft
Let us live that fantasy
