Hockey's Back!

To the tune of "Welcome Back," John Sebastian's theme from the TV show Welcome Back, Kotter:


Another lockout is over. Remember: It was not a strike, it was a lockout. It was ALL the fault of the owners and their grinning lackey, Commissioner Gary Bettman.
Hockey's back!
A deal is at last all worked out.
Hockey's back!
Going after the Cup that we dreamed about.

Well, some names, they have changed since they've been around.
But the dreams, they've remained, and they've spun around.

And who'd have thought we'd see them?
(Who'd have thought we'd see them?)
Back here, where we need them?
(Back here, where we need them?)

Yeah, it sure feels so nice
that we got 'em on the ice!
Hockey's back!

(Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!)
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)

Hockey's back!
So now, on ESPN
hockey's back
and NASCAR and the poker go home again!

And a season, we'll finally getting in.
We'll see Brodeur and Crosby and Ovechkin.

And who'd have thought we'd see them?
(Who'd have thought we'd see them?)
Back here, where we need them?
(Back here, where we need them?)

Yeah, it sure feels so nice
that we got 'em on the ice!
Hockey's back!

(Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!)
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)

(rink organ replaces Sebastian's harmonica)

And we'll see Ranger goalie Henrik Lundqvist
who's still got a sore neck from the goals he missed

And who'd have thought we'd see them?
(Who'd have thought we'd see them?)
Back here, where we need them?
(Back here, where we need them?)

Yeah, it sure feels so nice
that we got 'em on the ice!
Hockey's back!

(Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!)
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)
Yeah, it sure feels so nice
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)
that we got 'em on the ice!
(Hockey's back, hockey's back...)
Yeah, it sure feels so nice
that we got 'em on the ice!
Hockey's back!

Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!
Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!
Hockey's back, hockey's back, hockey's back!
