image for Fourth String On The Lakers

Fourth String on the Lakers

Well, the world revolves around me
I'm bigger than the biggest tree
Patrick Ewing and Reggie Miller
Don't have nothing on me
When game time comes around again
I'm always there for my team
But most of the time I'm ridin' the pine
Takin' in all I see

(Chorus) I'm forth string on the Lakers
My home is basketball
But last time I was put in the game
Was way back in the fall
I'm always there to cheer for the guys
Or dispute a ref's bad calls
First to pat old Shaq's behind
And the last to catch his balls

Flyin' into town is always a great big rush
Thousands of fans at the airport
then we're off on a charter bus
we always go to the best restaurants
where the waiters wear white gloves
I'm paid $500,000 a year to watch a game I love

Chorus

Well, some folks are fanatics
All they do is talk
They make good armchair quarterbacks
But they don't walk the walk
I'm always there in team huddles
When the coach is holding chalk
Never any doubt in my mind
Despite a bad press box

Chorus

Beverly Hills it's a dandy
I like to race my car
Takin' it around all the curves
Then I'm off to the local bars
I've always got good inside
And comments about the game
They look at me like I'm familiar
But they don't know my name

Chorus

Well, when I get home
From playing in the game
My family is there to greet me
They love me just the same
They say, "Hello, daddy. How've you been?
We saw you on that play.
First to stood up and then you sat down
And that was the end of your day!"
