Here is to the greatest of them all

Here is to the king of football

Fame, riches, records, rings

And oh so many other things

Let’s go back to 2001

Back to where this all begun

Before any Patriots fan dared to utter the word dynasty

Before any alleged scandals or invasions of privacy

You started as a draft pick in the 6th round

How could we know then, that you were Canton bound

Pick 199, what a disgrace

Yet you had the confidence to look Kraft in the face

You told him you were the best decision this organization has ever made

Even back then, you knew you could not be outplayed

Thinking about it now, that was 16 years ago

Yet not once have you ever slowed down your tempo

Bledsoe went down, you had to ready up

Bill Belichick called for the next man up

That year you took ring number 1

Just the first of many to come

Next came rings numbers 2 and 3

Out came the cries of dynasty

How can team go 4 years, with 3 rings?

I’d just say #JustPatriotThings

Soon enough the underdog glow had faded

In its place, a team the rest of the league hated

How could a team have this much success, year in and year out?

It is because of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, no doubt

Up popped a scandal and scathing allegations

Lies, cheating, and many other accusations

Spying, cameras, practices, and illegal filming?

Yet this is all ok from other parts of the building?

Spygate started a never before seen bloodbath

Word was out, Tom Brady is undoubtedly a psychopath

Has there ever been a connection as deadly as Brady to Moss

A combination so scary the team did not suffer a single loss

18 and 0, but perfection never came to fruition

The Giants ended Tom’s undefeated mission

The undefeated pressure ended up taking its toll

With a major upset, the Giants won the Super Bowl

Next year, first game, season opener

Brady’s season ends thanks to a guy named Bernard Pollard

Thanks to a tackle that came in a bit low

The Patriots couldn’t give the post season another go

A few years pass and success is still the norm

Brady is back but no return to sports biggest platform

Then came another shot for Brady to ascend into football heaven

Another Super Bowl, rematch with the Giants, the year is 2011

A game in which Tom and co. sought redemption

But a game-winning drive ended with an interception

Eli Manning did what he does best

Another miracle pass put the Patriots to rest

Another 2 years passed with a Super Bowl drought

Then finally the 2014 season came about

The Patriots ended up winning the AFC Championship Game

But another scandal would surface to taint Tom’s name

Stories of air in footballs began to bloom

Meanwhile, Tom is focused on the Legion of Boom

Brady is determined to not take the bait

Of the media perpetuating lies about so-called Deflategate

Ignoring the media and surrounding noise

Tom Brady enters the stadium with calm and poise

And so started the Battle of Super Bowl 49

For Tom and fans, the best story line

In the final seconds, Malcolm Butler saved the game

Aa goal-line interception resulted in sudden fame

Pete Carroll, of course, did not know it at the time

But with Lynch in backfield, run it from the 1-yard line

Next year, next season, new team, the same thing

Tom’s goal is to get another Super Bowl ring

4 rings, and talk of being the greatest of all time

Even that is not enough for this wonderful guy

And so starts the 2016-17 season

And thank you, Roger, for giving Tom a reason

Using Deflategate, you tried so hard to tear us apart

And because of this, Tommy had to miss 4 starts

Things were not meant to be, despite getting so close

A missed kick resulted in a win for the Broncos

But Bill Belichick had definitely learned his lesson

Home field advantage is the best place to have success in

But thank you, Roger, for giving Tom some time to rest

The team worked hard to bring out their best

Even in what should have involved Brady moving to a lower tier

Brady remained elite, and put up some of the best stats of his career

Tom Brady steamrolled his way to Super Bowl number 7

Tom Terrific had a chance to finally cement his legend

However, it seemed like we were all witnessing heartbreak

What was going on? the Patriots were down 3-28

But the GOAT preserved and engineered the greatest comeback

And Patriots fans cheered proudly, “That’s our quarterback!”

Unicorns, show ponies, where’s the beef?

Falcons fans stared in complete disbelief

The Falcons’ lead began to slowly dwindle away

Pass by pass, Brady made things look like child’s play

All of sudden this would-be blowout is now tied

Arthur Blank stands on the sideline horrified

With that, we finally move into overtime

And with that, comes that difficult final climb

Just put the ball in Brady’s hands,

For he will lead this final stand

The final drive is poetry in motion

Brady is calm, cool, in control of his emotions

At the end, a final toss to halfback James White

TOUCHDOWN PATRIOTS!, and so ends this dogfight

Confetti, screams, another Lombardi in hand

The Patriots are once more in the promised land

But 5 rings is not enough for this football lunatic

Brady is already focused on this year’s blitz for six
