What's This? A winning record?

Just a quick tribute to the now 5-4 Miami Dolphins, and my general reaction to their season thus far.

What's this? What's this?
The Dolphins won a game
What's this?
The single wing's to blame
What's this?
I can't believe my eyes
I must be dreaming
Wake up, Joe, this is insane!
What's this?

What's this? What's this?
It's called the "Wildcat"
What's this?
It tore apart the Pats

What's this?
The fans are saying
This time things are different
Oh I surely should not listen
Because last year's tears still glisten!
What is this?
What's this?

The QB's throwing touchdowns here
Instead of throwing picks
The coaching staff is calling plays
From a giant bag of tricks!

The defense held LaDainian
to merely 35
The "Wildcat" it seems to score
On each and every drive.

Oh, look
What's this?
They're losing once again, oh well,
I guess it was a fluke, too bad!
The entire league is laughing, saying
We played well, we should be glad!
What's this?

What's this?
Right now, we stand at two and four, but wait!
They say we can win more
But how?

We're talking 'bout a team that only won one
On a pass to Camarillo
When our quarterback was Cleo
Was it just a year ago?
I do not dare
I do not dare
Oh, could it be I got my wish?
What's this?

Oh no, oh dear!
It wasn't quite enough.
See here, the "Wildcat" got stuffed.
But wait, we're finding other ways to beat the Bills
It's Teddy Ginn, he's catching balls and
We've won another upset.
What's this?

The Dolphins keep on winning
And it's not just on the ground
The passing game is working
And the defense, it is sound!

My team has won three in a row
And I think I understand
Whatever's happening in Miami
Is truly something grand.

The coach, the team
They're making it come true: my dream
that maybe someday soon, they might
Go further than I've ever seen them go before
I cannot take it anymore

I want it, oh, I want it
Oh, I want it more than gold!
I've got to know
I've got to know
What sort of future does this hold?!
WHAT IT THIS?!
Super Bowl? Hmm...

Ciao,
-Hich
