Lyrics

I want to see a cool thing.
Perhaps a game where players’ swing.
I think perhaps the Cubs might win.
But maybe not in my lifetime.

Cubs! Cubs! Could you one day
win a lovely game of sports ball?
Cubs! Cubs! Could you one day win?
I love my game of sports ball.

I heard that they once won games
but long ago and far away.
I’ve heard that they did once win games
but never in my lifetime.

Cubs! Cubs! Will you one day win
a lovely game of sports ball?
Cubs! Cubs! Will you one day win?
I love my game of sports ball.

I thought I might survive just long
enough to see the Cubs win.
I thought that I might have just one
chance for a win in my lifetime.

Cubs! Cubs! Might you one day win
a lovely game of sports ball?
Cubs! Cubs! Might you one day win?
I love my game of sports ball.

I thought that you might win this game
and sure enough, I could not complain.
I may be old but you did it.
And I saw it with in my lifetime.

Cubs! Cubs! I knew you would win the lovely game of sports ball!
Cubs! Cubs! You really won the lovely game of sports ball.
