View Full Version : Imagine

Sung to the music of John Lennon's Imagine

Imagine Crede hitting,
No more pop flys,
No Jose to blow it,
Reinsdorf says goodbye,
Imagine all the Sox fans,
Happy with every play...

Imagine there's no Cubbies,
Unless your at the zoo,
No double plays from Paulie,
Five strong starters too,
Imagine all the Cubs fans,
Working during the day...

Imagine players pushing it
Giving it all they can,
Every hitter gets a hit or two,
And every runner ran,
Imagine all the players
Acting like teammates...

You may say I'm a deamer,
But my friend, our time has come,
I hope some day we’ll fix this team,
And a World Series will be won.

Slow day at the office, Deuce? Or are you just laden with free time now that PI is no more?

That's for another thread.

Dream on!
With apologies to Aerosmith . . .

Every time that I turn on the TV
Corpseball makes my stomach feel queasy
The season's done
This year Sox fans haven't had much fun
Maggs is done too
Without him and Frank, our offense looks like poo

I know and every Sox fan knows
Frank is great but Crede blows
Our crappy payroll is JR's biggest sin
That's why the Chi-Sox lose as often as they win

Damn, Pale Hose, another crappy year
At least we have churros and plenty of cold beer
Drink it with me, every freaking day
If we drink enough, this crappy season might fade away

Stairway time!

There's a chairman who's sure all that glitters is blue
and he's buying some new hunter green seats

When he gets them, he knows, if the box office is closed
for more scratch, he can sell all the old ones.

Ooooooh...ooooooooh-oo-oo, and he's bu-y-ying a Free Agent pitcher.

There's a sign on the wall of the Upper deck concourse
it says "Poor folk, please remain on your level
Do not wander, roam or mingle, for if thou art male and single
there's a good chance you might storm onto the field."

If there's a bustle in your pocket, don't be alarmed now
It's just some kickback from your cheap ways
Dear, Jerry can you hear the wind blow? And did you know?
Your shortstop's making a mighty wind.


And as we wind on down the road
Your tale of failure's often told
There walks a slugger we all know
He once was great but he's getting old
And if you listen very hard,
The fans all call your GM a 'tard
When all he wanted wasn't hard
A merely adequate payrooooooooooollll

And he's buying a stairway to the FUNdamentals deck...

Great thread! Love to see creative WSIers. Unfortunately I am not one, but I do appreciate all those people that are.
