Love Those Orioles In Birdland

Sunday's win marked Baltimore's first series sweep of the season and first home three-game series sweep of the Red Sox since Sept. 2-4, 1974.
This inspired some new Birdland lyrics
In the middle of that hub
I remember one sad club
Where Bosox went to beat
Down near sultan's home street
Everybody flipped the bird
To a team nicknamed the birds
Where beantown pitchers twirled
Like the best in all the world
The records achieved there
Were beyond compare
Birdland, I'm singing
Birdland, Old losin' Birdland
Hey man, the O's would really turn you on.
Really? but things have just turned around.
Down them stairs, old winners beware
Where? Down in Birdland
Booming swings, now Birds are kings
There, down in Birdland
Tejada would cook, Papi would look
Where? Down in Birdland
Ohnan came through, Nick came too.
There, down in Birdland
Papelbon got screwed, J.D. too
Where? Down in Birdland
Orioles played hard ball
Now Tremblay won't fall
There, down in Birdland, Yeah
