The Baseball Project 2010: Cubs 2010 Song

Green Bay Packers Cheesehead HatThe Chicago Cubs home opener is Monday, April 12th 2010 against their Cheddarific friends from the North (who like to wear Cheesehead hats), The Milwaukee Brewers. The home opener brings a lot of things including hope, chicken wings at Yakzies, people taking pictures holding beer around the Harry Caray statue, and of course...a new song of hope and promise that this year will finally be the year to break the 102 year old Chicago Cubs curse.

The new song this year is titled "Cubs 2010" and is the 2nd release off the 2010 Baseball Project 2010 album (in the making - as they release one new song per month).

The Baseball Project consists of: Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5, R.E.M., Young Fresh Fellows), Steve Wynn (The Dream Syndicate, Gutterball, Miracle 3), Linda Pitmon (Miracle 3, Golden Smog) and Peter Buck (R.E.M.).

Ryan White of The Oregonian wrote an article about the new song on The Baseball Project titled, "Cubs 2010." (we wrote about it last month with their first release, "Broadside Ballads"), along with an interview the Baseball Project's Scott McCaughey.

From the article...

Does McCaughey truly believe this could be the Cubs' year?

Chicago Cubs - Reverse the Curse - Break the Curse Billy Goat - Cubs Cursed Goat"Sure, why not? It's like the song says, if all these things happen, it could go that way," McCaughey wrote in an e-mail interview last week. "They need Zambrano to be dominant, they need to get [Ted] Lilly back soon, they need Ramirez, Lee and Soriano to be healthy, and see if Marmol really is going to be able to harness his closer stuff."

McCaughey acknowledges that's a lot of ifs, but he said he believes that offseason outfield acquisition Marlon Byrd could potentially have a huge year and that the offense "could be tremendous if Geovany Soto gets it back together."

Cubs 2010 Song Lyrics

This is the Cubs year
Two thousand and ten
One hundred and two years
This draught has to end

Everybody from 1908 is dead
Like Merkels boner it will be heaven sent
Time to win it again cuz
Time to win it again

Goodbye Milton Bradley
And all those mistakes
Looks like Carlos Marmol - has finally got what it takes
To hold down the closers job

Aramis and Derrek
Will be thirty one / hundred men (30 HR's / 100 RBI's)
Time to win it again cuz
Time to win it again

Zambrano is going to keep his head
Soriano's knees will painlessly bend
Soto will hit like a rookie again
And we'll hear all about it from Bob and Len
from Bob and Len

This will be the year of no *** joke  (if anyone knows the missing lyric..please let us know)

This will be the year of no last-minute choke
No Will Clark, no black cat, and no billy goat
No cursing billy goat

Pinella didn't come to Chicago
Just to contend
Time to win it again cuz
Time to win it again

Ernie Banks will be there
Tears of joy in his eyes
Ron Santo will moan with ecstatic surprise
forgetting nineteen sixty-nine

Harry Caray will look down from heavenly skies
It's two thousand and ten cuz
World Champion time

Time to win it again
Two thousand and ten
Time to win it again

Thank you Kevin. I kept hearing joke, choke should have been obvious.

I think the lyric should be "Time to win it again, Cubs..."
