The Lyrics

Some people stay far away from the park
'cause there's no chance of the Cubs winning games.
They hear the voice on their old radios
and if the Cubbies lose, it's a shame.

Some people live with the fear of a curse
and the anger of having been a fool.
They will not listen to anyone
who says the billy goat's a lie.

I know you're only protecting yourself.
The winner has to be somebody else
someone who beat you.
But I was on top of that fly, a pop
you've been denying you would ever grab.
I'm not above doing anything to get out of this garbage can.

Some people see through the eyes of the old
'cause you never saw a Pennant when young.
I'm willing to let you make my cry
because I am an innocent fan!

I am... an innocent fan! Oh, yes I am!

Some people say they will never believe
another Pennant will come to this park
because they only remember too well
they heard somebody tell them before.

Some people cry all alone every night
'cause the Cubs give them so many tears to shed.
Some people find it's easier to hate than to wait anymore.

I know you don't want to hear what I say.
I know you think I just gave it away.
But they ain't killed me, I still survive
and the Cubs will still strive.

I'm not above going out there again.
You're not above being cruel for a while.
If you drool on me, I'll understand.

Some people run right up to Wrigley Field.
Some people figure we can never win.
And although my face is bloody and bruised
the accused is an innocent fan!

I am... an innocent fan!
Oh, yes I am... an innocent fan!

You know you only hurt me out of your spite.
I guess you'd rather martyr Bartman tonight.
That's your decision, but I'm not below
our own team, you know.

If there's a chance of winning Pennants at last
I'm not above forgiving all of your hate
because I'm not where the heartache began.

Some people hope for a miracle team.
Some people just accept the truth as it is.
But I'm still willing to stand up and cheer
because I am an innocent fan!

I am... an innocent fan!
Oh, yes I am... an innocent fan!
