The Way It Is (to the tune of 2Pac's "Changes")

I see no changes. Wake up in the morning and I ask myself,
Is Lyle worth starting? Should I blast myself?
I’m tired of his poor play, even worse his hacks
My stomach hurts so I’m lookin for a first to snatch
Doug give a damn about a zero? Pull the trigger, something bigger, he’s a hero
Give the crap to the kids who the hell cares? DFA now Lyle’s on the welfare
First ship ‘em Roache, and let’s deal some others
Get some guns, step back, and watch ‘em peel the cover
"It’s time to fight back," that’s what Carlos said
Two shots in the park, now he suspended
I got love for my Brewers, but we can never go nowhere
Unless we bunt over runners. We gotta start makin’ changes
Sedar learn to ice to the rubber all these TOOTBLANs gettin dangerous
Is that how it’s supposed to be?
Let the devils in St. Louis stay at two GB?
I’d love to go back to when we played with Prince,
But things changed, and that’s the way it is

That’s just the way it is
Things’ll never be the same
That’s just the way it is
Aww yeah

I see no changes, all I see is baseless faces
Misplaced ‘Bay brings disgrace to plate hits and runners,
I wonder what it takes to make this one better place
And stop wastin’ plate bits
Save the people from the weak hole, ‘less you think he’s right
Then both Ron and Doug are smokin’ crack tonight
And only time we chill is when he kills a double,
It takes skill to be real, time to deal the brother
And though it seems Heaven sent,
We ain’t ready, to see the young Hooper yet,
It ain’t a secret don’t conceal the fact
Triple A is packed and it’s filled with bats
But some things they will never change,
Try to show another way but they stickin’ with the grit game
Now tell me what’s a skipper to do,
When base hits don’t appeal to the Ron in you?
You gotta operate the Brewer way,
"I got RB’s today," but you did it in a bunty way.
Flailin’ bats for the kids, "He got veteran age,"
Well hey, well that’s the way it is

That’s just the way it is
Things’ll never be the same
That’s just the way it is
Aww yeah
We gotta make a change…
It’s time for Doug and some people to start makin’ some changes
Let’s change the way we bunt, let’s change the way we challenge,
And let’s change the way we give up runners.
You see the old way wasn’t always working so it’s on us to do
What we gotta do, to survive

And still I see no changes. Can’t a Brewer get a little lead?
There’s war on utility and war in the AL East
Instead of WAR on Lyle B
He’s got a war on runs so his K’s can bother me
Fat Juan was a crime they ain’t have to do,
And now he’s back with jacks, we still payin’ too
Didn’t let him pack the truck, back Mark up,
Now we stuck, like a pimp smacked us up.
‘Bay's gotta learn to hold his own
Or the only thing ringin’ be the bullpen phone
But tell the jock he can’t touch hits,
I don’t trust this, when he tries to rush I’m crushed kids,
*Whiff* That’s the sound of a tool,
You say it ain’t cool, but mama didn’t raise no fool
And as long as he still hacks, I gotta say that he’ll never get his swing back.
Cause we always got to worry ‘bout some payback,
Some club that we roughed up way back…comin’ back after all these wins,
Rat-a-tat-tat-need-bats. That’s the way it is.

(Special shout out to a haggard Scotsman)
