I played the bejeebers out of this mess in my parent’s basement (so no one else would be disturbed by the noise), as a little kid. it was set to an awful disco beat and the lyrics made little sense. Of course, Luzinski had to play the “fat guy” fool, even though looking at him now, he barely seems chubby.Â The offenders are: Larry Bowa, Dave Cash, Mike Schmidt, Garry Maddox, Greg Luzinski.
Phillies Phever! (off key) refrain
And we’ll go dancin’, dancin’ in the streets, cause we’re the Phillies, you know we can’t be beat
So come on, baby, won’t you get on down….Veteran’s Stadium is the hippest place in town!
(Then we have the 2 black guys inexplicably rapping as CB operators):Â “Breaker 19 for some local info”, “Go head local info” “Hey good buddy can you tell me what the hottest thing in Philadelphia is?” “GOT to be the Phillies good buddy.” “That’s a big 10-4. is that you Dave?” That’s me, Garry, 10-4. SAY Greg going out for batting practice? “SURE Dave, after i finish these THREE CHEESEBURGERS” (guffaws)
Phillies Phever (refrain repeats)
Let’s get together and dance with all your friends, it’s just a party, the music never ends
So come on, baby, won’t you get on down….Veteran’s Stadium is the hippest place in town! (“Charge” horn blares)
“Hey schmidtty by the way what time is it”?
“It looks like its about 8 o clock Garry”
“Jeez The game started an hour ago!”
“We better finish this song then! Say Gary how do you like playin’ at The Vet”?
“It’s really nice, Mike.” (Mumbling agreement)
We got the phever, with the phillies, YEAH! (repeat and trail off into inevitable static)
Don’t get me started on the instrumental only b-side.
