RIP: 2007 New York Mets

video
My sympathies to Mets' fans. "Go know," as my old friend Dave Stein used to say, that things would turn out this way, with such a stark reversal in fate for NY baseball fans. One Yank chum of mine wrote me this simple email message over this situation, "So Nice." Immediately after I couldn't get Astrud Gilberto out of my head. So the above is the video offshoot, with Bebel singing not Astrud. I found a gold mine of Met yearbook resources here
Here are the lyrics: Note a custom Met alternative to first stanza (Someone to show some fight, someone to hit to right, someone who'll give a damn, someone to be a man....

Someone to hold me tight
That would be very nice
Someone to love me right
That would be very nice
Someone to understand
Each little dream in me
Someone to take my hand
And be a team with me

So nice, life would be so nice
If one day I'd find
Someone who would take my hand
And samba through life with me

Someone to cling to me
Stay with me right or wrong
Someone to sing to me
Some little samba song
Someone to take my heart
And give his heart to me
Someone who's ready to
Give love a start with me

Oh yeah, that would be so nice
I could see you and me, that would be nice

Someone to hold me tight
That would be very nice
Someone to love me right
That would be very nice
Someone to understand
Each little dream in me
Someone to take my hand
To be a team with me
So nice, life would be so nice
If one day I'd find
Someone who would take my hand
And samba through life with me

Someone to cling to me
Stay with me right or wrong
Someone to sing to me
Some little samba song
Someone to take my heart
And give his heart to me
Someone who's ready to
Give love a start with me

Oh yes, that would be so nice
Shouldn't we, you and me?
I can see it will be nice...
