KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There have been several ‘Royals’ parody songs popping up on the Internet just in time for the World Series. But one of them was written and produced months ago by Royals fans John Long, Aaron Lage and Aaron Durkalski.

“Royals” Parody Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
A baseball diamond green and fresh
I cut my teeth on series rings in the 80s
I’m quite proud of my address
In a crazy town, Kansas City
But every year it’s like bullpens, dugouts, swingin’ for the fences
Homeruns, strikeouts, trashin’ the opponents
We don’t care, we’re driving homers in our dreams
But everybody’s like, Cardinals, Red Sox, what about the Yankees
Mets, Braves, Marlins, Tigers and the Phillies
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair

Chorus
Cuz you’ll never beat the Royals
It don’t run in your blood
That kind of loss just can’t for us
We create a different kind of buzz.
We will be your rulers
Kings of the MLB
And baby we’ll rule, we’ll rule, we’ll rule, we’ll rule
It’s not just a fantasy

[Verse two]
The fans and I – we’ve cracked the code
We count our wins on the plane from your city
And everyone who knows us knows that we’re fine with this
We’ve only come for glory

But every year it’s like bullpens, dugouts, swingin’ for the fences
Homeruns, strikeouts, trashin’ the opponents
We don’t care, we’re driving homers in our dreams
But everybody’s like, Cardinals, Red Sox, what about the Yankees
Mets, Braves, Marlins, Tigers and the Phillies
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair

Cuz you’ll never beat the Royals
It don’t run in your blood
That kind of loss just can’t for us
We create a different kind of buzz.
We will be your rulers
Kings of the MLB
And baby we’ll rule, we’ll rule, we’ll rule, we’ll rule
It’s not just a fantasy

Bridge Lyrics
ooh ooh oh
We’re even better than we seem
We’ll beat every other team
ooh ooh oh
Life is great at ‘The K’
Winning every single game
