To paraphrase Chicago Cubs great Ernie Banks:
“The Cubs will be great
. . . in 2 – 0 – 0 – 8.”
The North Side is hopping. Next year may be here.
The Cubbies are winning. Hear Wrigleyville cheer.
No fledgling athletics, this blue-striped clan,
They take to the field, and they thrill every fan.
We’re fillin’ the flivver and headin’ to town;
At Will-Call at Wrigley, we’ll lay the farl down.
The fricative jeers will be silenced for good,
As frowzy opponents are trounced in our ‘hood.
Let warning signs fly. Let the bleachers erupt.
Express yourselves, Cubs fans. Let none interrupt.
A Major League pennant is close to your reach.
To victory sweet, we invite and beseech.
