Matt Cain is On His Own (Les Miz parody #2)

boublil/schonberg/kretzmer/JG

(EXT. PORTWALK NIGHT)

MATT: And now I'm all alone again
Nowhere to sit, no one to lean on
The trading deadline's not for months
Already people joke I'm first gone
I feel the winter's near
I feel that no one cares I'm here

Sometimes I walk alone at night
when everybody else is screwing
I think of Tim and Bum and Jonny
And who Zito may be doing
They all have their own fame
But no one seems to know Matt Cain

On my own, pretending they're behind me
All alone, I try to keep it scoreless
Without help, I do all they ask of me
And if I lose the game 1-0 fans talk shit about me

Every game's where one mistake is deadly
All the same, I play the game I have to
In the ballpark, I stand beneath the floodlights
But all they see is Tim not me forever and forever

Zito says it's only in my mind
But he's talking to himself there next to Tim
And I know the media is blind
Still I say
There's a way for me

I will win Game 2 against the Rangers!
I will win
I'll beat them nine to nothing!
Besides Tim, they think we have no starters
But I'll induce so many outs
I'll mock my xFIP numbers

I will win
I'll be the conquering hero!
All my life they'll buy me drinks and love me
Without me, the world champs won't be winning
A Series full of happiness
The City's never known!

They love me
They love me
They love me
But I'm still on my own.
