Lyrics

I thought that perhaps the game would go on longer.
So I went to the kitchen to make me some food.
I thought that the baseball game would have gone on longer.
So I was away when the game, it was won.

Would you have ever thought that the Cubs, they could win it?
I was pretty sure that they would lose once again.
Have you have ever thought that the Cubs, they would win it?
I was pretty sure that they would lose once again.

Have you ever thought that perhaps the Cubs they like games?
They like to sing and dance and sometimes throw a ball.
Baseball it involves some bats and some leather gloves
I think that sounds really cool perhaps with a leotard.

Have you ever thought of maybe playing more games?
Perhaps with a diff’rent bat or a diff’rent ball?
I have really found that baseball can not complain.
They bring lots of money to their very wealthy teams.

But you know the Cubs are not the most wealthy team,
so it is very hard when they pick all their players.
Football is nonprofit so they don’t have that issue.
They can pick from the best when picking it is fair.

With baseball they’re not playing on a level field.
It is like the wealthy they get all the best.
Baseball it is like they’re not playing on a field.
It is like a mountain side; some of them are blest.

Have you ever thought that baseball could be better
if it weren’t so corp’rate with their moneyed betters.
Have you ever thought that baseball could be better
if they were more socialist: played on the level.

I have often thought we, perhaps, could do one, too.
We could make ourselves a game, here with our crew.
I have quite often thought that we should play our game.
We could bring the best of bits. It would not be lame.
