I Love This Team (my apologies to Toby Keith)

We got winners, we got losers

8th inning chokers and boozers

And we got Hughes, we got Santo

We got Goodman's "Go Cubs, Go!"

And the girls in the bleachers are hot, if you know what I mean

 

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this team

 

We got catchers, we got pitchers

We even got some belly itchers

And we got hustlers, sometimes loafers

A brand new field, so no gophers

And the veterans aren't as old as they may seem

 

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this team

 

[Chorus:]

 

I love this team

They're my kind of guys

I love watchin' them play baseball

Brings a tear right to my eyes

It ain't a dream, the best I've seen

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this team

 

I've seen shortstops, we got highlights

Our Beanballs can start fights 

And we got power, lot's of homers

And "The Wonder Hamster" is a misnomer 

Cause he looks benign but deep down he's really mean

 

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this team

Yes I do

 

I like Big Z (I like Big Z)

I like Rich Harden (I like Rich Harden)

I like Ted Lilly tagging up

to take a catcher out now and then

 

I love this team

They're my kind of guys

I love watchin' them play baseball

Brings a tear right to my eyes

It ain't a dream, the best I've seen

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this team

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this team

 

We got Derrek and a big Wood man

An old manager and real good fans

We got Aramis and he hits big flys

And Dempster is a wise-guy

If you win the game he'll get ya with shaving cream

 

Reason number 672 why

 

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this team

Play it on out boys

Octobers almost here

Got to take it on home

 

Hmm, hmm, hmm I love this team

I just love it

 

Al's recap today gave me just enough inspiration to whip this up...call me stupid.
