On, Cubs! Your season starts today!
Defeat is in the past;
Let Sox fans gloat as gloat they may;
Our turn has come at last!
On, Cubs! Your season starts today;
Up! Let your loins be girt!
Beware, O foe! This year we play,
Instead of getting hurt!

And Barrett... well, can hit!

Come, raise a mighty cheer!

Won't have to say, "Next year!"
On heros now our hopes depend.
Farewell to loss and pain!
On, boys! The time has come to end
The Cardinals' evil reign!
