"Fire Sale," the song

We all know the Cubs are sellers this year, so in keeping with this reality and with a little inspiration from Weird Al Yankovic, I've penned the following lyrics (sung to the original Spiderman theme music). For those readers not old enough to remember this theme, go to the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUtziaZlDeE

Fire sale, fire sale

Season's lost so it's time to bail

Dump contracts big in size

Free agents be advised

Look out: Here comes the fire sale

Theo's smart, he's not blind

He's got a sabermetric mind

See him trade for prospects

Or at least for draft picks

Hey there, here comes the fire sale

By mid-July, well before the deadline

No need to be shy, he deals ahead of time

Fire sale, fire sale

Theo's annual fire sale

Don't like it, that's too bad

He's not here to make you glad

In last, trades are a great big cash bump

In hopes of future bump up

Here comes the fire sale
