Cubs Creed for 2004

There’s weeping on Waveland,
And Sheffield is dark.
Another sad ending
At Addison and Clark

The Cubbies lost the big one
In the very last game.
A season so different
Has ended the same.

There’s no joy in Wrigleyville
As the ivy turns brown.
But who can forget
The Cubs lit up the town!

Our Boys of Summer,
Were a loveable crew;
With Sosa and Lofton
And Moises Alou

Prior, Wood and Zambrano
Threw fire at our foes.
And we counted on Farnsworth,
And Borowski to close.

Ramirez, Gonzalez,
Grudzielanek, and Karros,
Joined Miller and Bako,
To keep the games close.

Our skipper was new
From the city by the Bay,
But “In Dusty we Trusty,”
from opener to closing day.

If Baker was the brains,
Each win had another part.
Our perfect 10, Ron Santo,
Was in every Cubbies’ heart.

America we thank you
For loving the Cubs,
For cheering our long shots
In your living rooms and pubs.

Now in our despair,
There’s one thing to say:
Spring training is only
Four months away.

Next spring when the green
Is back on the vines,
Cubs fans will pour
Into the Friendly Confines

America don’t give up,
Don’t falter, don’t grieve,
If you wanna be a Cub fan,
You gotta believe.
