LYRICS: Stairway To Seven, Steelers D, Tomlin Song

My traffic is way down from last week (not a surprise), but a lot of the hits I'm still getting are people searching for the lyrics to these wonderful Rich Banks covers. I've had the song links up for a while (see the sidebar at right, there are both streamers and download links), but I haven't typed up the lyrics till now. Here are all three.

Stairway To Seven
to the tune of Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven
performed by Rich Banks


By the Three Rivers shores
A team wears black and gold
With a QB who wears number seven

From the days of Chuck Noll
Jack Lambert and Mean Joe
The Lombardi Trophy's what we play for

Oooh Oooh
Bradshaw's throwing a touchdown to Lynn Swann

There's a feeling I get
When I drive the Parkway West
With snow falling it's playoff season

In Heinz Field I have seen
Golden towels all waving
And the voices of those screaming 'De-fense'

Oooh Polamalu

Ooooooh Troy Polamalu

Now there's a tussle with the Ravens
And it's gonna snow
Beat them and go and win that sixth ring

Steel Curtain's blitzing for Joe Flacco
Thanks to Dick LeBeau
Noll, Cowher, and now Coach Tomlin

Yes there are two teams that are playing
But in the long run
One's a lame bird and one's a Champion

And as we wind on down the road
Towards the Tampa Super Bowl
Mel Blount, Jack Ham, and Franco
Make way for Hines, Willie, and Santonio

Here we go Steelers here we go
And if you listen very hard
You'll hear the voice of Myron Cope

Steelers fans both young and old
Not black or white but Black and Gold

And our QB wears the number seven

Steelers D
to the tune of AC/DC's T.N.T.
performed by Rich Banks


Yoi yoi yoi and double yoi, yoi yoi yoi
Kiesel, Hampton, Aaron Smith, and Hoke
Taylor, Clark, and Forty-Three
Out to make opponents bleed
Go ask Willis McGahee

Woodley to the left of James
And Silverback to his right
We don't need a gun
Don't need a knife
To beat the sissy Cards in a fight

It's the

Steelers D
Steel Curtain time
Steelers D
Warner's gonna cry
Steelers D
Arizona's doomed
Steelers D
Edge James needs a hospital room

They're dirty, mean, best you ever seen
They'll hurt you bad
Arizona, this ain't gonna be fun
Understand?

So lock up Kurt Warner
Hide your O-line
Just stay in Phoenix
Or you'll get last rites
The Curtain's back in town
And Arizona's goin' down

Steelers D
Yoi Yoi Yoi
Steelers D
Yoi Yoi Yoi
Steelers D
Yoi Yoi Yoi
Steelers D
Yoi Yoi Yoi
Steelers D
Yoi Yoi Yoi

The Tomlin Song
to the tune of Kenny Rogers's The Gambler

performed by Rich Banks

In the winter of '07
Dan Rooney lost Coach Cowher
So he sat down with Mike Tomlin
After Whisenhunt and Grimm

No one gave Mike a shot 'cause
The others knew the Rooneys
But Tomlin overwhelmed Dan
With all that he told him

Mike said "Sir, I've made a life
Out of coaching lots of ball games
And I know how to beat up
The Browns, Ravens, and Cinci"

Rooney passed up on the favorites
And took a chance on Tomlin
And just two seasons later
He's coaching for a ring

You got to know when to blitz 'em
Know when to Max Protect
Know when to Cover 2
Know when to run

You never count your rings
When you're standin' on the sidelines
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the beating's done

On the eve of the Super Bowl
His players lookin' for inspiration
And that Cards offense lookin' scary
Tomlin's words were bold

"Arizona's just a team
While we represent a Nation
It don't matter if you're black or white
Just that you're Black and Gold"

And when Tomlin's team had won
He turned back towards the Three Rivers
Folded up his Terrible Towel
And faded off to sleep

And somewhere in the darkness
Dan Rooney's still the genius
'Cause in the wake of Tampa Stadium
He found a sixth ring he could keep

You got to know when to blitz 'em
Know when to Max Protect
Know when to Cover 2
Know when to run

You never count your rings
When you're standin' on the sidelines
There'll be time enough for countin'
When the Cards are done
