It's three-thirty on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me,
Hums along with the Crazy Train din.

He says, "Son, ND ball's rudimentary
We're all pretty sure how it goes
Coach gets mad, playclock's beat, throw a fade incomplete
And Under Armour sells some clothes."

La la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Just go along with the big chunk man
Just go along, don't fight
'Cause we're not in the mood for your zealotry
And yeah, eight and five is alright.

Now Bri on the field, his pay's pretty fine
Gets wrap-around shades for free
To "it" we must "get used"; to Northwestern he'll lose
And there's someplace that he'd rather be
He says, "These academics are killing me.
And I really don't like the fan base
But I would be an NFL coaching star
If I could get out of this place"

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

BK has committed apologists
Who love him much more than their wives
So let's stop knockin' Davie; at least he beat Navy
While Charlie's on payroll for life

We've got rubber grass after much politics
As the Frozen Five cheat and get stoned
They share training tables now so copious
But who'll pay that big Crossroads loan?

Just go along, he's the big chunk man
Just go along, don't fight
'Cause we're not in the mood for your zealotry
And yeah, eight and five is alright

It's a pretty good crowd for a UMass game
And Savvy Jack just has to smile
'Cause he notes with some glee that if this they'll come see
We can go on like this for a while
And the jumbotron sounds like a carnival
As we chase aspirational peers
And I trudge to my car (the lots now are so far)
And say, "Man, what am I doin' here?"

Oh, la la la, di da da
La la, di da da da dum

Just go along, he's the big chunk man
Just go along, don't fight
'Cause we're not in the mood for your zealotry
And yeah, eight and five is alright
