Natural Born Thriller

Kerry Wood
Why do you live so dangerously
Close to the edge:
The walks;
The hit batsmen;
And the deep fly balls.
Would a 1-2-3 inning bore you?
Do you not feel alive unless you have runners on base?
Yes, you get the job done
And you bleed Cubbie blue–
But think of Ron Santo’s heart next time you’re on the mound
And keep the excitement at a medium level.

Go Cubs Go? [2008 Remix]

Baseball season’s well underway
We thought at first it was a brand new day
Harry Caray is rollin’ in his grave
The Cubs just lost again today

They’re singing,
Go Cubs Go?
Oh god no
Harry Caray is rollin’ in his grave
The Cubs just lost again today

They got the power, they got the speed
To be the best in the National League
But if they don’t step it up a bit
The whole season will go to ****.

They’re singing,
Go Cubs Go?
Oh god no
Harry Caray is rollin’ in his grave
The Cubs just lost again today

You can catch it all on WGN
Unless they’re on Comcast again
Sometimes even on ESPN
But won’t be found in the postseason

They’re singing,

Go Cubs Go?

Oh god no

Harry Caray is rollin’ in his grave

The Cubs just lost again today
