I thought perhaps the Cubs would win
but not win that one game.
I put some money on it.
The Cubs they were to lose by ten.
Yet they won that old game.
Yes, they won that silly old game.
And the Cubs! The Cubs! They won that game.

I thought they were a good bet to place.
They never win their games.
But they won that old game you know.
Now I’m worried about my toes.
My bookie might break my toes.
My ankles, shins and toes.
I’m worried my bookie might break my toes.

How do you know if you are dead?
Will you see Cubs win again?
I thought they would never win.
I placed money on Indians.
I was certain they wouldn’t win.
I was quite certain they wouldn’t win.
But you know they won, and I lost my shirt.

How do you know when the world ends.
Is it because stuff happens?
Is it because the trump has won?
Is it because the Cubs they won?
Perhaps it’s gone too far.
Perhaps the end is here.
How do you know the world has not ended?
