"Pressure" - Another YPOM Themed Song

Pressure
by Joe Terranova
(Parody of "Pressure" by Billy Joel)


You have to learn to just say no
Pressure
You’re just like everybody else
Pressure

You only want to do short runs
Sounds good
But you will meet with the club
Where the only thing you see
Are shiny medals in your face
And you’ll have to deal with
Pressure

Race talk used to make you annoyed
Pressure
But it seems you can not avoid
Pressure

You vowed to only run 5 and 10K’s
Now here you are with your GU
And your white Elvis costume
In another marathon
Cause you succumbed to club pressure

Retired then you see the bling
Detroit, Vegas
They’re all going
Here it comes Marathon 13
Lined up in the street
It’s not a dream

Pressure
Pressure

Don’t try to fight
Your cause is lost
Pressure
You’ll have to explain
To your spouse
Pressure

I’m sure you’ll have some kind of rationale
But here you are at an Expo
Everyone’s urging you on
No one to help you resist
Where we all succumb to
Pressure
Pressure

Each weekend is spent on the run
I do it too
We think it’s fun

Pressure

I’m sure you’ll have some kind of rationale
But here you are with your bib
And your Garmin set to go
Your outside friends think you’re nuts
Cause you cannot handle pressure

Pressure, pressure
Y-P-O-M
Pressure


====================================

Original Version

Pressure
by Billy Joel


You have to learn to pace yourself
Pressure
You're just like everybody else
Pressure

You've only had to run so far
So good
But you will come to a place
Where the only thing you feel
Are loaded guns in your face
And you'll have to deal with
Pressure

You used to call me paranoid
Pressure
But even you can not avoid
Pressure

You turned the tap dance into your crusade
Now here you are with your faith
And your Peter Pan advice
You have no scars on your face
And you cannot handle pressure

All grown up and no place to go
Psych 1, Psych 2
What do you know?
All your life is Channel 13
Sesame Street
What does it mean?

Pressure
Pressure

Don't ask for help
You're all alone
Pressure
You'll have to answer
To your own
Pressure

I'm sure you'll have some cosmic rationale
But here you are in the ninth
Two men out and three men on
Nowhere to look but inside
Where we all respond to
Pressure
Pressure

All your life is Time Magazine
I read it too
What does it mean?

Pressure

I'm sure you'll have some cosmic rationale
But here you are with your faith
And your Peter Pan advice
You have no scars on your face
And you cannot handle pressure

Pressure, pressure
One, two, three, four
Pressure
