Darvish

yu-darvish-ronald-martinez

In honor of Yu Darvish’s debut with the 2017 red-hot Dodgers, we have this song.  The song is based on Devo’s 1978 classic:  “Uncontrollable Urge”.

 

Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu
Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu

Got a surge in win streaks and it’s outta control
Got a surge don’t want to purge
And I’m losing control

Uncontrollable surge I want to tell you all about it
Got an uncontrollable surge let me, scream and shout it

I’ve got an uncontrollable surge
(He’s got an uncontrollable surge)
I’ve got an uncontrollable

It’s got style, it’s got class
So strong, I can’t pass the gas I gotta tell you all about it
I gotta scream and shout it

Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu
Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu

Got an surge in win streaks and it’s outta control now
Got an surge don’t want to purge and I’m losing con-trol
Uncontrollable surge I want to tell you all about it
Got an uncontrollable surge let me, scream and shout it

That’s right

I’ve got an uncontrollable surge
(He’s got an uncontrollable surge)
I’ve got an uncontrollable

It’s got style, it’s got class
So strong, I can’t pass the gas I gotta tell you all about it
I gotta scream and shout it

I got an uncontrollable surge I want to tell you all about it
An uncontrollable surge make me scream and shout
And I say Yu
(He’s says Yu)
And I say Yu, Yu
(He says Yu, Yu)
And I say Yu
(Yu)
And I say Yu, Yu
(Yu, Yu)

And I say Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu
Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu, Yu
