Rejoice, Cubs fans! Theo signed Yu Darvish! The 2018 rotation is complete and the Cubs look poised for another year of winning baseball! Of course I couldn’t let this momentous occasion pass without writing and performing a parody song. Kudos to Al Yellon for the song idea!

All winter long we didn’t know
To which baseball team Yu Darvish would go
Now he’ll be wearing Cubbie Blue
20-18, the Cubbies they got Yu

Paid
We got Yu paid
We got Yu paid

Our rotation’s gonna bring
Another World Series ring
Yu’s missing bats, strikes ‘em out
The Cardinals are scared when Yu’s on the mound

Contract he signed is six years long
Had Tommy John, let’s hope nothing goes wrong
We’ll have him when he’s past his prime
But I’m so happy Theo got him signed

Paid
We got Yu paid
We got Yu paid

We’ve got Yu and Yu’s the man
We’ve got Yu, it’s Theo’s plan
We’ve got Yu on the Cubbies
Yu’s a #2 or 3

We’ve got Yu.
Kiss Jake goodbye.
Cardinals and the Brewers cry

We’ve got Yu in Chicago
Lot’s of years and tons of dough

Paid
We got Yu paid
We got Yu paid

We got Yu paid
We got Yu paid
We got Yu paid
We got Yu paid
We got Yu paid
We got Yu paid
