Song and lyricsEdit

Sports Analogies - feat

Sports Analogies - feat. Scott Michael Foster & Vincent Rodriguez III - "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"

Lyrics:


Nathaniel:
We’re down for the count
it’s down to the wire
we can’t drop the ball
we gotta aim a little higher.

Josh:
‘Cause when we’re on the ropes
and it’s our turn at bat
we gotta throw a hail mary
gotta go to the mat.

Nathaniel & Josh:
Sports analogies
Sports analogies

Nathaniel:
We’ve found the common ground
in all men’s personalities.

Josh:
We talk a big game
that’s how we relate.

Nathaniel & Josh:
It’s the easiest way for men to
communicate

Nathaniel:
Hike!

Josh:
It’s par for the course...

Nathaniel:
When you’re in the home stretch

Josh:
to swing for the fences

Nathaniel:
with a full court press

Josh:
we’re on the one yard line

Nathaniel:
inches to go

Josh:
so you’ll pitch and i’ll catch

Nathaniel:
‘Cause it’s our lead to blow

Nathaniel & Josh:
Let's use more
sports analogies
sports analogies
they help men cope with life’s
harsh realities!

Josh:
Let's spew more clichés

Nathaniel:
‘Til we run out the clock

Josh:
Just keep your eye on the ball...

Nathaniel:
The puck...

Josh:
and my shuttlecock

Nathaniel & Josh:
Hey!
Sometimes, when we watch sports,
we get sad
and we make it seem like
we’re sad about the sports

Josh:
but we’re not really crying
about the game at all

Nathaniel:
who really cares about
a game of basketball

Nathaniel & Josh:
We’re sad about our dads
we couldn’t talk to our dads
unless we used
sports analogies
sports analogies
men feel safe with these
empty generalities

Nathaniel:
let’s go for the gold

Josh:
and then we’ll hit the lockers

Nathaniel & Josh:
We're american men
we like all sports
except for soccer
‘cause soccer’s just a bunch
of foreigners running around
Yeah!
