The Lyrics

Well at Wrigley Field, Chicago,
The Cubs have a lot of fans.
And next year when they play
They'd better stay away
From a fan named Steve Bartman.

Now these Cubs have had trouble,
You see it just kept getting worse.
All the sports talk experts called it "big game choking."
All the fans just called it "curse."

(Chorus)
They've got the billy goat curse,
Vilest curse in the universe,
Stronger than a voodoo hex,
And more painful than Kobe's sex.

But these Cubs made the playoffs
And they finished off the Braves.
And their thoughts turned to World Series rings
'Cause they were everybody's faves!
Against the Marlins, they looked awesome.
They went up three games to two.
They had no cause for alarm with Mark Pryor's right arm
And the home field advantage, too.

(Chorus)

Now the Cubbies had a safe lead,
Pryor had good stuff.
And up for the Marlins
Was a guy named Castillo,
And oo - that guy looked tough.
But Castillo hit a foul ball
Into Chicago's mystique
And these Cub fans learned a lesson
'Bout messin' with the goat of an angry Greek.

(Chorus)

Alou thought he'd catch that foul ball,
And when he bounced off of the wall,
He looked just like a jack-in-the-box,
Because Steve Bartman took the ball!

And it's bad, bad Steve Bartman,
More infamous than the Taliban,
More stained than that blue dress,
And less loved than the IRS.

And it's bad, bad Steve Bartman,
More infamous than the Taliban,
More stained than that blue dress,
And less loved than the IRS.

Yeah, he'll be more stained than that blue dress,
And less loved than the IRS.

Agree with Guy; some great lines in there.

Good shot with "the goat of an angry Greek," but I had to dock you a point in each category for mentioning Monica's laundry. In case you didn't notice, not guilty by majority vote.

Excellent. I have to disagree with MP on one thing. If the Taliban and the IRS are fair game, so's Monica's wardrobe.

amazing how concerned with Bill Clinton people are despite the fact he's been out of office for years now.. I guess it's easier than worrying about real issues.. like the Taliban and the IRS, which are still problems in today's society

Ditto and ditto on the aboves - nicely done. Ok, so I'll pick - it's "Prior" - and I only mention this because he's my vote for NL Cy Young.
John Jenkins - October 22, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks for the comments. I realized that I misspelled Prior when I read Michael Pacholek’s “W-T-P;” and since MP knew the correct spelling, I was surprised that he didn’t chastise me for that as well as for the stained dress.

(sports) Great job...even though I don't believe in the Billy Goat Curse (the Cubs have just sucked for 100 years)
Jeff Reuben - March 01, 2005 - Report this comment
(Sports) Alright, no more Sosa's gone comments. Dang...too late! Good job on the song, enjoyed it =)
Rex - March 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Maybe the Cubs should change their name to the Goats. Nice job.

(SPORTS) Damn that day of infamy. This is the most singable of the sports parodies in this competiton.
Scathe - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
(SPORTS) The Cubs need to enlist El Chupacabra to balance things out.
Guy - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
(Sports) See above comments. Also loved the goat reference.

"Curses" are made to be broken. I agree with Charlie; they've just sucked for 100 years. Mark it down, though-- this is the year. Or next year. Or maybe the year after that. Still some great lines here.

(sports) some nice gags in this one - well done John - 555

(sports) it was good up until the last verse... and then it was great.

I think it's fair to mention Monica too, this is a sports parody comps and we've said nothing beforehand about making a difference between outdoor and indoor sports... ;-)

(Sports) Bartman and Buckner, the Bad Boys of Baseball ! Great job, JJ, and your choice of original song --- "Bad Bad Leroy Brown" ( from Chicago, just like the Cubbies ) --- was brilliantly appropriate.

Castillo, tough? all 63 lbs of single-hitting intimidation. lol Good parody here. I hate the cubs, so I particularly enjoyed reliving this loss.
