about

"E.B.U.G." Emergency Back Up Goalie is what David Ayres was/is. It was a dreamy night for him, his family, hockey fans and anybody who loves a great story. We love it so much, we wrote recorded and released this song in about 8 hours. Please support our stupidity, obsession and very focused borderline un-healthy love of music and hockey. Have an ice day, The Zambonis

lyrics

Hi my name is David I'm a back-up goalie
Yes I have a day job I drive a Zamboni
Goalie's all went down they told me to get dressed
42 years old time to take a real test

and i'm a back up goalie yeh, that guy is me
a back up goalie TEXT ME if it's an emergency

first two shots got by me at the end of two
Brindamour said have some fun so I did and then we won

and i'm a back up goalie first game and my first win
a back up goalie now i'm retiring

back in the minor leagues I never got me a win
but now check out this grin!

and i'm a back up goalie tonight, was like a dream
a back up goalie even the Leafs fans cheered for me

and i'm a back up goalie, but tonight I went in
you may not know me
MY NAME'S DAVID AYRES AND I GOT THE WIN

SHOT 1 SHOT 2
UH-OH SO I LET IN A FEW
SHOT 3 SHOT 4
SHOT 5 OH YEH NOTHING'S GETTIN BY
SHOT 6 ........
SHOT 7 SHOT 8
I GUESS IT'S NEVER TO LATE
SHOT 9 SHOT 10
The Canes got my number hope they call me again
