Sister Jean (sung to the tune of Billie Jean, by Michael Jackson)

Michigan takes on Loyola-Chicago tonight. Go Blue!
I  'wrote' a song about Sister Jean for just this occasion.

Note: Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt is the 98-year-old nun who serves as the chaplain for Loyola-Chicago’s basketball team and sends each player a personalized scouting report before each game.

Sister Jean (sung to the tune of Billie Jean, by Michael Jackson)

She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
I said don't mind, but what do you mean, I am the one
Who will dance on the floor in the Final round
She said I am the one, who will dance on the floor in the Final round


She told me her name was Sister Jean, as she caused a scene
Then every Loyola-Chicago head turned and dreamed of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the Final round


People always told us be careful who you drew
Just go around breaking old nuns' hearts
And Coach Beilein always told us be careful of who you shove
And be careful but Go Blue! 'cause Michigan basketball is the truth


Sister Jean is not my mother
She's just a nun who claims that they are the one
But her kids are one and done
She says they are the one, but her kids are one and done


For Final Four days and Final Four nights
The press was on her side
But who can stand when she's in demand
Her schemes and plans
'Cause we'll dance on the floor in the Final round


So take my strong advice, just remember to always think twice
(Don't think twice, don't think twice)
Coach Beilien told us to shoot the three, then she looked at me
Then the Rambler's cried their eyes like a sign divine (oh, no!)
'Cause the Wolverines danced on the floor in the Final round


People always told me, hail to the victors and Go Blue!
Just go around breaking old nuns' hearts
Wolve's celebrated in the locker room
Just the smell of sweat perfume
Chicago is going to gloom
The Ramblers met their doom


Sister Jean is not my mother
She's just a nun who claims that they are the one
But her kids are one and done
She says they are the one, but her kids are one and done

Sister Jean is not my mother
Sister Jean is not my mother
Sister Jean is not my mother
Sister Jean is not my mother
Sister Jean is not my mother

THE END

and now, because the tune is in your head...
