The Lyrics

Chicago was a really good band once. But they jumped the shark when they starting giving Peter Cetera most of the lead vocals.
(instrumental opening)

Saturday
in the park.
The inning is the fourth that's gone by.
Saturday
in the park.
The inning is the fourth that's gone by.

People talking, people cheering.
A man selling ice cream
at seven bucks a pop.

What a ripoff, and it's melted!
Can you dig it?
(No, I can't!)
But I've been waiting such a long time
for hot dog!

Later day
in the park.
The inning is the sixth that's gone by.
Later day
in the park.
The inning is the sixth that's gone by.

Red Sox two runs, Yankees seven.
A home run by A-Rod.
Of course, the game's not close.
Will you help him change his swing?
Can you dig it?
(Yes, I can!)
And he's been waiting such a long time
for October!

Slow-motion windup
drives a hitter nuts today.
A Bronx man still can
tell stories his own way.
Listen, Boston!
Rivera comes in!
This game is lost!
And won!

Fun and games
in the park
another Pennant's rung up to fly!
Fun and games
in the park
another Pennant's rung up to fly!

People singing
"New York, New York."
A real celebration.
Waiting all year long.
(Waiting all year long!)
If we want it, really want it
can you dig it?
(Yes, I can!)
And I've been waiting such a long time
for today!

Woo-hoo!
Just a month until pitchers and catchers report!

The only Chicago song I've heard that I really like is "Smokin". I liked A man selling ice cream at seven bucks a pop. What a ripoff, and it's melted!
