    Hmmmm .... I'm wondering if this means I should start singing in the shower more often in order to practice.

    WOW! Chris Bond is the Director/Composer/Creator of Evil Dead: The Musical.

    Even though I hate x-mas tunes, I'm creatively cheesy enough to write something I know Chris will like!

    Both Chris' song and Steve's tunes are hilarious. I'd be surprised if anyone could come anywhere close to theirs.

    Raptors Ball

    Slashing through the lane
    In their Nike Shox
    Through defenders they go
    They’re shook out of their socks
    Soles on sneakers squeak
    Making ankles snap
    What fun it is to scream “Shit’s weak!”
    And give their man a slap

    Oh, Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to watch
    Jose get beat every play
    Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors all the way
    Oh, what fun it is to watch
    Banks do nothing and get paid

    Last Saturday night
    I thought I’d watch a game
    The Raps could play no D
    It seemed nothing had changed
    Their O was tight and hot
    Though it just was not enough
    Andrea’s attempt at help defense
    Resulted in a stuff

    Oh, Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors all the way
    Oh what fun it is to watch
    Antoine Wright attempt to play
    Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors all the way
    Oh what fun it is to witness
    CB4’s dismay

    Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors every night
    To find his way to the basket
    ‘Drea may need a flashlight
    Raptors ball, Raptors ball
    Raptors now and then
    Suicide rates will double
    If Bosh leaves in twenty-ten

    Hey!

    By far the most fluid stanza - and the funniest. PLus it puts Bargs in a positive light - not too shabby.

    I guess what kind of light Bargnani is in in that stanza depends on your definition of "stuff" :P.

    Default Happy X-mas (Toronto Raptors) - a la John Lennon

    So these are our Raptors
    And what have they done
    They've spent 15 years playing
    Losing much more than they've won
    And so these are our Raptors
    Losing hasn't been fun
    They say they've been trying
    And that the franchise is still young

    Yes we love our Raptors
    We're still here to cheer
    Players come and they go
    But Fans will always be here

    And these are our Raptors
    Our future looks strong
    But we need to win in the playoffs
    Or else Chris Bosh will be gone
    So let's cheer for the Raptors
    Home game wins are the key
    This season's too important
    So let's not give up on this team

    Yes we love our Raptors
    They're Canada's team
    Let's hope this season's a good one
    Cuz we'll need Bosh to succeed

    And so these are our Raptors
    Owned by MLSE
    They tell us they've been trying
    And so has BC
    And so these are our Raptors
    We want a championship team
    We hope it'll happen
    As fans it's truly our dream

    Yes we love our Raptors
    We're still here to cheer
    Players come and they go
    But Fans will always be here

    Win a title, in our lifetime
    Win a title, now

    Happy X-mas (Toronto Raptors)

    To the tune of Jingle Bells.
    Play this in the background for some auditory aid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fU9d79ho6dE

    Slashing like a pro
    He passed up an open trey
    Toward the rim he goes
    But little does he know
    Waiting 'neath the rim
    The Big Diesel he will find
    Making Raptor fans cringe
    As Kid gets knocked on his 'hind

    DeRozan fell, DeRozan fell
    Everybody pray!
    Oh, how we hope that he's okay
    'Cause the future's kinda gray! (Hey!)
    DeRozan fell, DeRozan fell
    Not a soul thinks Bosh will stay
    Oh, how we need a decent young piece
    With our cap space on the decrease

    The fans are out of their seats
    But on the floor he lies
    That's not a nickname, Devlin
    It's actually a cup size
    The Kool-Aid has been drunk
    He is the future of this team
    Now who will get the highlight dunks?
    And don't say Sonny Weems!

    DeRozan fell, DeRozan fell
    Everybody pray!
    Oh, how we hope that he's okay
    'Cause the future's kinda gray! (Hey!)
    DeRozan fell, DeRozan fell
    Not a soul thinks Bosh will stay
    Oh, how we need a decent young piece
    With our cap space on the decrease

    (Repeat)

    Default Santa Claus is coming to town

    You better start to win,
    You better not suck.
    Better not grin,
    I'm telling you Canuck.
    Chris Bosh is leaving this town.

    He's making a list,
    He ain't coming back,
    Gunna find out that Toronto is wack.
    Chris Bosh is leaving this town.

    He sees DWade in Florida,
    He knows New York will try,
    He knows Texas is home and safe,
    So be ready to say goodbye.

    Oh you better hope the Raps,
    Can turn this thing around.
    Because if we collapse,
    Then don't be astound.
    Chris Bosh is leaving this town.

    To the tune of 'Deck the Halls"

    Deck the halls with Reggie’s trophies
    Fa-la-la …
    Instead of John they’ll call you Sophie
    Fa-la-la …
    (When) he returns you’ll be in trouble
    Fa-la-la la-la-la …
    (He’ll) reach right through and take a double
    Fa-la-la-la-la …

    While he roams there on the sideline
    Fa-la-la …
    Giving fashion tips if you’re blind
    Fa-la-la …
    (Don’t) let his smiling face now fool you
    Fa-la-la la-la-la …
    If he can he will de-ball you
    Fa-la-la … …

    When is Reggie back, we’re asking?
    Fa-la-la …
    (We) want to leave the Celtics gasping
    Fa-la-la …
    When we re-match we’ll be melding
    Fa-la-la …
    And maybe Pierce will leave a gelding …
    Fa-la-la-la-la …

    Default This Rift (sung to 98 Degrees - This Gift)

    The shots aren't falling, and nothing is right
    My eyes are bleeding watching Raptors tonight
    And I'm not alone
    Lose the game at home
    We're out of luck – no pizza again

    The night is violent
    And clipboards break here
    I couldn't ask for more from Chris Bosh this year

    But I love you, Raps
    I always will (perhaps)
    But now I know the mojo ain't right
    The mojo ain't right

    'Cause I've been waiting to mend this rift tonight
    His game is so wrong, but his words is Wright
    It's something to hope for as long as he's gimped
    Tonight we need some toughness (Oh, lord!) from Reggie Evans, pimps!

    I thought he'd give us a big shot or two
    Instead turnovers came from Turkoglu
    But I realized
    When there is no pride
    There's some things that money can't buy!
    (Oh, no!)

    I fear the Magic, whenever they're here
    I fear them even more with Carter this year

    But I love you, Raps
    I always will (perhaps)
    But now I know the mojo ain't right
    The mojo ain't right

    'Cause I've been waiting to mend this rift tonight
    His game is so wrong, but his words is Wright
    It's something to hope for as long as he's gimped
    Tonight we need some toughness from Reggie Evans, pimps!

    You know I'll always be tuned to you
    And you know I'm online on the boards, too
    (Oh, oh yeah)
    ACC, on the road, or anywhere
    You know I'll be pulling my hair!

    'Cause I've been waiting to mend this rift tonight
    His game is so wrong, but his words is Wright
    It's something to hope for as long as he's gimped
    Tonight we need some toughness from Reggie Evans, pimps!

    Default You better not...

    You better not drive
    You better not kick
    You better not rebound
    That isn't our schtick
    Not how ball is played in... this town.

    You better not rotate
    No talkin' on D
    Don't get back in transition
    Hey you passed up a three!?
    Not how ball is played in... this town.

    And now a word of warning
    If you don't play like you're supposedta
    Although it pains us to have to say,
    We'll break your shin like Garbajosa

    So,
    You better not drive
    You better not kick
    You better not rebound
    That isn't our schtick
    Not how ball is played in... this town.
    (reprise last line)
    If you wanna do that shit, go and play in Cleveland with Lebron.
    Whoooooa yeeeaaahhh!

    Default Tight Defense

    I'm... dreaming of a tight... defense
    Just like the Raps I used to know
    When the quick Doug Christie
    And big, tough A.D.
    Had wives tougher than Rasho...

    (Vince's mom was pretty tough too.)

    I'm... dreaming of a tight... defense
    With every night the Raptors blow
    May Bargnani box out tonight
    And may all our defenses be tight

    I'm... dreaming of a tight... defense
    Just like the Raps I used to know
    Back when Oakley's elbows
    Were Dave Semenkos
    For Vince, Trace and Muggsy Bogues

    (It was also important to pay him on time.)

    I'm... dreaming of a tight... defense
    Just like one B. Colangelo
    May our shooters learn how to fiiiight
    And may all our defenses be tight

    To the tune of Christmas Time Is Here

    Marcus Banks is here
    Injuries must be near
    And Calderon sits by the bench
    And Raps fans shed a tear

    Three-pointers in the air
    Turnovers everywhere
    A combo guard that couldn’t hit
    The broad side of a bear

    Banks looks in the air
    Ticket holders everywhere
    He sits when the Raptors win
    But his suit is debonair

    Marcus Banks is here
    He hears a Bronx cheer
    This is what the Raptors call
    The garbage-ist minutes of the year
    This is what the Raptors call
    The garbage-ist minutes of the year

    To the tune of "Here comes Sanata Clause"

    There stands Rasho N.

    There stands Rasho N., there stands Rasho N.,
    Camping in the key
    Jose and Marco and all his bitches
    Giving up the threes
    Mesh is swishing, fans are crying
    Just an ordinary day
    Realgm has to change their pants
    When Rasho says “Let’s NBA”!


    There goes Rasho N., there goes Rasho N.,
    Jogging to the net
    He’s got the knees of a very old man
    But he’s still our trusty vet
    Watch him move at a snails pace
    He just might leave his feet
    Rasho N. lost his virginity
    While you were at your Mother’s teet!

    There sits Rasho N., there sits Rasho N.,
    Resting on the bench
    He’s so deep and quiet
    His mind’s like an ocean trench
    Heaven knows we’re Rasho’s children
    Our Mother’s could not resist
    Rumour says under his beard
    He has an extra fist!

    There walks Rasho N., there walks Rasho N.,
    Tto the lockeroom
    When Jose hands out gatorade
    Rasho beats him with a broom
    Hungry children will find food
    If we pray to Rasho at night
    Rasho N. wears no left shoes
    Because Rasho is always right!

    Default Raptors Wonderland (sung to Winter Wonderland)

    Shot clocks wane, are you listening
    In the lane, refs are whistling
    A beautiful sight
    Raps played D tonight
    Shocking if the effort never ends

    Gone away are the boo birds
    For a day 'til the tide turns
    Hedo flings a long bomb
    Andrea goes up strong
    Shocking if the streak never ends

    Let's not meddle with the coach's gameplan
    Just pretend that he is Larry Brown
    He'll say “Pack the house!” We'll say “Hey, man!
    But you'll contest the shots from downtown?”

    Later on, we'll desire
    Quit the team, unretire
    Debate all the trades
    Demand that they're made
    Shocking if the panic ever ends

    In the future, build around Derozan
    And pretend that it's a slam dunk crown
    We'll have lots of fun then, I'm supposin'
    Until we drive that kid outta town

    When we win, ain't it thrilling
    Playoff games, gets top billing
    We'll holler and cheer, year after year
    Shocking if the passion ever ends
