Watch: 'Some Nights' parody gets us ready for the World Series

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) - FOX 2 viewers alerted us to an online video parody they say is firing them up in time for the World Series.

A YouTube channel called 'The NOC' posted the World Series parody set to the tune of Fun's hit song "Some Nights." It features clips of both the Tigers and Giants.

NOC says it's an entertainment channel about "the personalities and lives of athletes."

Lyrics:

Some games, I stay up, scream at Tim McCarver
Some games, I dress like Joe Buck
Some games, I wish that I was Miguel Cabrera
Some games, I wish I was Posey

But I still stay up, watching every out
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure 'bout Valverde, oh
I watch Verlander; I watch Bumgarner
Leyland, don't you smoke anymore?

Scutaro, Barry Zito, oh oh

Santiago, Octavio, Phil Coke, oh oh

It's not baseball, this is war - what are we waiting for?
I think the series might go seven
I'm watching until my eyes turn numb - grow my hair like Lincecum
You're lucky if you can score a run, 'cause even in the pen
The boy's got style

And that's alright; Prince Fielder's on TV tonight
All Detroit is praying he'll hit a slam, hit a slam, hit a slam
Oh, eat a ham. Mmm... mmm...

Well, some games, I wish they would never end
And they would sub me in for DH
And some games, I hit like I'm Hunter Pence
Some games, I always win, I always win...

But I still stay up, watching every out
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure 'bout Valverde, oh
I watch Verlander; I watch Bumgarner
Leyland, don't you smoke?
