I usually wake up a few times during the night, with last night being no exception. Tossing and turning, I reached for my phone at 4 a.m. and saw a text from my buddy Lyle, "Cubs sign 3 time All-Star LHP Jon Lester." I was so excited, instead of trying to fall back asleep, I started favoriting and retweeting tweets for about an hour. Eventually, I drifted back to finish my dreams, all that much sweeter knowing Jon Lester is playing for the Chicago Cubs.
Paul McCartney said he wrote the song "Yesterday" in a dream, and when he woke up the song was right there for him to write down. So it was with me this morning when I awoke inspired to write "Lesterday."
Lesterday, the World Series seemed so far away
Now I can’t wait for opening day
2015 starts Lesterday
Suddenly the Cubs have an ace who’s a lefty
Can’t wait to watch him pitch at Wrigley
Jon Lester is a Cubby
Thank you to Theo!
Cause you got Jon Lester paid
We’ll remember you
When the Cubs go all the way!
Lesterday, we told MLB we came to play
Plus we stole Joe Maddon from the Rays
And last year we ripped off the A’s
Cubs are spending dough
Montero, behind the plate
It’s been six long years
since the playoffs in 08
Lesterday, the Cubs could be in a pennant race
The damn Cardinals in second place
Oh I believe in Lesterday
