On the 7th day of Christmas, Beachwood gave to me
more Cubs mediocrity



1908, 1908, the TV wasn't invented, West Side Park's where you played
William Taft won the election
Ford produced his first Model T
Tinker, Evers, Chance and Steinfeldt made your infield deep
You beat the Tigers in five
Now there's no one who saw it alive

1908, 1908. all those years of frustration just keep slipping away
You've been cursed by a pet goat back in 1945
And a Black cat crossed Ron Santo's path as he roamed the third base line
And Leon Durham was a player you loved
Till that fair ball skipped under his glove

1908, 1908, Dusty chews toothpicks, Corey whiffs at the plate
Now the White Sox and Red Sox have played through the fall
And your Cubbies might have been there had Alou caught that ball
But Steve Bartman sat in the stands
And that foul ball, it glanced off his hands
