Oh My Darling, Colin's Time

The San Francisco 49ers are named after the men who participated in the gold rush of 1849 in the Sierra Nevada mountains east of San Francisco.

"Oh My Darling, Clementine" is a ballad about the daughter of a miner who participated in that same gold rush.

It's time for these two facts to meet.

And so I give you "Oh My Darling, Colin's Time"

In a big dome, in Atlanta
Awaiting their next time to shine
A team the "experts" say will lose
Whispers "now, it's Colin's time."

Oh my darling, oh my darling,
Oh my darling, Colin's time
The clock is ticking, fingers itching
Just two days 'til Colin's time.   

He can run and he can throw
All say he's the next in line
But all great stories have an ending
Lance then Manti, now Colin's time.


They've picked Peyton and blanked Eli
And caused Cam to moan and whine
Stopped Drew Brees' touchdown streak
And folks now it's Colin's time.


All the pundits and the writers
Say this man is just sublime
Can't be stopped, his team so hot
But guess what, it's Colin's time.


They said all the same things last week
If I only had a dime
For each slight of the Birds' game
Oh who cares, it's Colin's time. 


Hey guys do me one big favor
Go ask Russ what's more sublime
Losing within 30 seconds or
Knowing now it's Colin's time.


C-Nick might I make a call here:
Your next tat will be the grime
Of the turf you eat all day
That's Spoon, this is Colin's time.


Curtains closing, hot streak's ending
Grab a bud, add a lime
You're about to meet the Falcons
So Rise Up, it's Colin's time.


  1. So good, Abby! I hope you'll be at the game. I've built my weekend around watching football all afternoon and evening on Sunday. Can barely wait. I feel very fortunate to get to see my current home team play at 3 and then my original home team play at 6:30! RISE UP.

  2. I LOVE it. I'm a regular reader but this one is extra special.

    1. i too enjoyed your sing-songery but not as much as knowing batman reads your blog!
