In between visits to the Ernie Banks memorial on Saturday, I felt myself coming down with a cold and wanted nothing more than to lay down for a long winter's nap instead of driving out to Highland Park to record my sister's family for a Cubs Victory Song. But I thought to myself: WWED -- What Would Ernie Do? Ernie Banks wouldn't let a cold slow him down when there was a Cubs song to be recorded! In fact, he might record a whole album!

So north I drove with a bag full of recording gear and tracked some great vocals with my sister Amy, her husband Rob, plus all three of her kids! Ladies and germs…the Speeks!

This could be your family! Imagine the togetherness and love that will last all of 10 minutes!

You don't have to sing either! Just chant "Let's Go Cubs" at the beginning and email it to me at this address.

If you can't sing or chant send me your Cubs Fan Pics and help finish the video!

Thanks to Elija Ampo (pictured at the top of this article), who sent in a couple photos to use for the video. Keep the pics coming!

In honor of the sad news of this past weekend, I changed a lyric in the first verse. I now sing "Hey Ernie, Let's Play Two, We'll raise the "W", cause the Cubbies won today!" It needed to happen. The lyrics are posted below the video.

Please email me all pics, and audio files by Wednesday!

Be a part of a Cubs victory song with your voices and photos! Remember: WWED?

What a beautiful day for a ball game

The Cubs are on their way.

Hey Ernie, Let’s Play Two, we’ll raise the "W"

Cause the Cubbies won today

Raise your voice, stand up and cheer

Cause this is gonna be our year!

Holy Cow! Hey Hey!

We’re going all the way!

We’re cheerin’ on our Cubbies, cause we came to play

We’re gonna clap our hands

We’re gonna shake the stands,

Chicago Cubs and the world's greatest fans

Let’s Go Cubs!

Raise your voice, stand up and cheer

Cause this is gonna be our year!

Holy Cow! Hey Hey!

We’re going all the way!

We’re cheerin’ on our Cubbies, cause we came to play

We’re gonna clap our hands

We’re gonna shake the stands,

Chicago Cubs and the world's greatest fans

Let’s Go Cubs!

Let’s Gooooooooo!!!!!
