The Lyrics

Guess the next best thing to a Cubs-Red Sox World Series is one between the Cubs and White Sox. You may not know it, but the Pale Hosers are cursed, too: They haven't won since 1917, and they're best known for forfeiting the 1919 Series against Cincinnati on purpose (remember Shoeless Joe Jackson and the Black Sox scandal?).
Look at the fans in Wrigley
A sellout at Comiskey
The outfield ivy's very green
The greatest fans I've ever seen

We want that El-Train Series, that good old El-Train Series

Sammy hits a long roundtripper
Big Hurt Hits a towering homer

October soon will be here
Won't mean a thing to me, dear
Let's fly the banners really high
I hope Chicago wins this time

We want that El-Train Series, that good old El-Train Series
Our favorite series of the year

Just wait and see
There is no better time like this, a chance I'd never miss
Now's the time

From North to South, in Wrigleyville we'll stop to kiss
And while the nation will be watching football
We will still be playing baseball

You want to see the trophy
Let's watch the Sox and Cubbies
I know what's running through your mind
I say this is the perfect time

We want that El-Train Series, that good old El-Train Series
Let's see it all right here and now
Let's get that trophy into town

Let's root for them all summer now
Let's hope for this October now
We want that El-Train Series now!
Dedicated to Minnie Minoso, George Bell, Lance Johnson, Ron Santo, Fergie Jenkins, Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Ryne Sandberg, Rick Sutcliffe, Mark Grace and, of course, Jack Brickhouse and Harry Caray (wherever you two are, we miss you).
