Thank You Mrs. Favre!!
Who are we trying to kid – When it comes to having Bret
It wasn’t just his decision – On that you can place a big bet
His daughter was cool – And kept her opinion on hold
Until that first day of school – When she let daddy be told!!
Then the stars went into alignment – And the Gods took over the ship
You said you were feeling good – Your passes still had some zip
You probably couldn’t do everything – That your mind might expect
But there’s nothing like Sunday football – It’s a game you totally respect!!
The Viking fans are in a frenzy – The number “4” is selling fast
The naysayers are also busy – Saying, “No way, your arm just won’t last
But I personally think them wrong – You’ve brought something only money can buy
Hope for an emerging franchise – Riding on the shoulders of one great guy!!
Each day the news gets better – Brett Favre will start the 2nd Exhibition game
He’ll only play a series or two – Afterwards everyone will exclaim
It’s the best thing that could happen – We’ve truly got a chance this year
When he takes to the field, just listen – It will be a roar, not a cheer!!
It’ll be fun to watch the “Cheeseheads” – When the Packers come to town
They’ll totally look befuddled – When Favre gets that big first down
Do we cheer or do we boo – They won’t know what to do
I’m thinking it won’t matter – By the time the Vikings get through!!
But back to my original thesis – Mrs. Favre, thank you for giving a nod
I know without your blessing – We’d still be waiting for that act of God
I don’t know what your thoughts were – But I’m glad it all worked out
History is in the making – Brett said, “My legacy is my own”, no doubt!!
