Oh Manny! Some songs which sum up Manny Ramirez

In response to Manny Ramirez's 50-game suspension, mobile music site mSpot.com sent Subway Squawkers a list of five ringtones that sum up the the Manny mess. Their site lets you edit your own ringtones to the part of the song you want, so mSpot picked the most applicable lyrics for each ringtone choice.

Anyhow, I can't resist posting this list, and adding a few of my own:

1. Stars Are Blind (Paris Hilton): “…some people never get beyond their stupid pride…”

2. Before you Accuse Me (Eric Clapton): “Before you accuse me take a look at yourself…”

3. Rehab (Amy Winehouse): “When I come back you’ll know, know, know…”

4. Blame It (Jamie Foxx feat. T Pain): “I ain’t sayin what you won’t do but you know what we’re probably gonna do…”

5. Wasn't Me - Shaggy: “Never admit to a word…”

I have a few other suggestions of my own for Manny's ringtone, focused on the fact that he took the female fertility drug human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG):
  • "Man, I Feel Like a Woman": Shania Twain
  • "Mother's Little Helper": The Rolling Stones
  • "Having My Baby": Paul Anka
What songs fit Manny Ramirez - or any other baseball player, for that matter. Leave us a comment!

Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Bob Dylan:

You got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend.
When I was down, you just stood there grinning.
You got a lotta nerve to say you got a helping hand to lend.
You just want to be on the side that's winning!

You say I let you down. You know it's not like that.
If you're so hurt, why then don't you show it?
You say you lost your faith, but that's not where it's at.
You had no faith to lose -- and you know it!

I know the reason that you talk behind my back.
I used to be among the crowd you're in with.
Do you take me for such a fool to think I'd make contact
with the one who tries to hide what he don't know to begin with?

You see me on the street, you always act surprised.
You say, "How are you? Good luck" -- but you don't mean it!
When you know as well as me, you'd rather see me paralyzed.
Why don't you just come out once and scream it?

No, I do not feel that good when I see the heartbreaks you embrace.
If I was a master thief, perhaps I'd rob them.
And now I know you're dissatisfied with your position and your place.
Don't you understand? It's not my problem!

I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes.
And just for that one moment, I could be you!
Yes, I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes.
You'd know what a drag it is to see you!
