The Lyrics

A hundred years. Maybe this time. Maybe not...
(instrumental opening)

There's a man whose ballpark's known as Wrigley.
Whenever his team loses games, it's bigly.
Aw, with every game they lose
he digs Chicago "Blues."
Odds are, they will lose again tomorrow.

Really patient man!
Really patient man!
The Cubs have lost forever.
Ain't takin' away his shame.

Since 1908, they ain't won it all.
To them, it ain't called "autumn," it's called "fall."
Great joy they haven't felt
since Teddy Roosevelt.
Odds are, they will lose again tomorrow.

Really patient man!
Really patient man!
The Cubs have lost forever.
Ain't takin' away his shame.

(insrumental break)

Really patient man!
Really patient man!
The Cubs have lost forever.
Ain't takin' away his shame.

Swooning in September in the Sixties.
And then choking in October in the Eighties.
Aw, no, 2003 did slip.
Steve Bartman, he's such a drip.
Odds are, they will lose again tomorrow.

Really patient man!
Really patient man!
The Cubs have lost forever.
Ain't takin' away his shame.

Really patient man!

Maybe this year, maybe not, indeed. Good stuff, MP, particularly the "felt/Roosevelt" couplet.

Beautiful Cubs subs!

It's too bad Joba Chamberlain hung his head when David Dellucci hit a game winning home run against him. Maybe he would have learned to show some class in victory or defeat.

Lord Pacholek,You really put the CUBs "up there", despite their ineptness at the game; and thanks for mentioning my favoite Prez: ~T.R.~ cowboy par excellence, & fellow ~Scorpio~ too!
