2013-14 CBJ overture: Welcome to the Boonetown

I couldn't help but adapt one of my favorite songs from my younger days when I saw the CBJ's Captain Of The Future made the team.

Don't worry if you don't get it, kiddos...the original 1986 version by David + David (which peaked at #37 on the Billboard Hot 100) is at the end of this post. 

Thanks to Gallos for helping me tighten this up! - Tom


Mr. D plays his Callaway four
Relaxation oozes from his pores
He lets Jarmo man the phone

Running the draft floor, drafting kid after kid
Trades to be done, he keeps his ear to the phone
He keeps his ear to the phone

So I say, I say welcome, welcome to the Boonetown
Choose a leader, we got plenty to go around
Welcome, welcome to the Boonetown
Your ticket dollar makes such a comforting sound
Welcome to the Boonetown

Dancing Kevin went a little off track
Took a trip out to Denver and rarely gets back
Now he jiggles a lot, probably has a trick back

Got paint on the belly, paint on his back
He always dances to the sound
Always dances to the sound

So I say, I say welcome, welcome to the Boonetown
Grab a stick, we got plenty to go around
Welcome, welcome to the Boonetown
Your ticket dollar makes such a comforting sound
Welcome to the Boonetown

Well the playoff run came too late
Lord Stanley, he didn't want to wait
