‘Spring Training’: A Cubs Song!

New, 5 comments

BCB’s Danny Rockett ushers in the 2017 season with the first Cubs song of the year!

A Spring Training Nap
Danny Rockett

The shortest Cubs offseason in our lifetime is nearly over and the 2017 campaign is about to begin with the three sweetest words ever uttered every February. No! Not “Happy Valentine’s Day” or “I Love You.” The sweetest phrase is “Pitchers and Catchers!”

To celebrate, here is the first song of many for the “2017 Cubs Canon” — a parody of “The Waiting” by Tom Petty. And for the first time ever you can become a VIP subscriber have access to all my Cubs songs as I release them! As a VIP subscriber, you get high quality downloads of all 31 songs from the 2015 and 2016 seasons, in addition to everything I release in the future! Please consider supporting my Cubs music.

Happy Baseball Season everyone!!! Lyrics printed below the video which features BCB reader Puckov and many pics from the last two years of Spring Training!

The Cubbies are playing, get back in the crowd

We’ll repeat in 2017

Leaving Chicago, going to Phoenix

Wanna be at the park out sitting in the sun

It’s pitchers and catchers and the winter is done.

It’s the first one since we won the Championship

I say yeah, yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah yeah

Spring Training is about to start

Grab your pencils and your scorecard

I’m going to a game instead of to a bar

Spring Training is about to start

I’m getting in a Kia and I’m leaving this town

Baseball is all I’m gonna do now

Yeah out with the fans drinking a cold beer

Forget about ice forget about snow

Catch a ballgame in the sun.. with me and Rizzo

You know we’re gonna win like a year ago

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Spring Training is about to start

I’ll see Koji Uehara

I’m going to a game instead of to a bar

Spring Training is about to start

Oh, I’m rooting for the Cubbies, I’m wearing Cubbie Blue

I’m rooting for the Cubbies, I’m wearing Cubbie Blue

I’m getting in the car, to spend my afternoons

Watching Schwarber go yard, Addison Russell too

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Spring Training is about to start

Pumping life in my Cubs Blue heart

I’m going to a game instead of to a bar

Spring Training is about to start

Yeah,Spring Training is about to start

Ooh

Baseball season starts

Ooh

Baseball season starts
