Famed local comedian Joe Conklin and his daughter, Casey, have teamed up on a music video that mocks Andy Reid's failures this season.
The video is based on Taylor Swift's song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." It's a fair bet that many Eagles fans have been saying just that to Reid throughout this season.
By the way, the Eagles announced Wednesday morning that Taylor Swift will perform at Lincoln Financial Field on July 20 as part of next year's tour schedule. We doubt Reid will still be around at that point, but if he is... how about a duet?
Here are the lyrics to the Conklin version of the song. All words are sung by Casey Conklin unless otherwise noted:
[Andy Reid in a voiceover, with an actor portraying him on camera: Alright, got to do a better job, I'll take full responsibility, time's yours]
I remember when you screwed up the first time Fourteen years later is enough, cause like We haven't had a sack in a month And you say, you'll do a, better, job
[Reid in a voiceover, with an actor portraying him on camera: Better job.]
What? Then you come out again and say Listen, I'm taking full responsibility. I've had it. Every week is Groundhog Day, I say: I hate you. You say, you'll fix it. Times yours
[Reid in a voiceover, with an actor portraying him on camera: Time's yours]
Oooh you screwed it up again last night But Oooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you We are never ever ever gonna win with Andy We are never ever ever gonna win with Andy
You go fire your friends, Always your friends, it's never you But we are never ever ever gonna win with Andy
[Joe Conklin on screen: What do they call the definition of insanity?]
Like ever... I'm really gonna miss our Monday talk And your, funny way managing of the clock. Your stupid, play calling in the red zone And all the, fourth quarter leads that you've blown.
[Casey Conklin stops singing, and says in a speaking tone: So he comes out again and he says: "I gotta do a better job" And I'm like, "I mean, this is exhausting, you know"]
We are never going to win with anything with Andy ...like ever. We are never ever ever gonna win with Andy
[Reid voiceover: Better job]
We are never ever ever gonna win with Andy
[Reid voiceover: Gotta do a better job]
You go fire your friends, Always your friends, it's never you
