Astros Sweep Pirates

"She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes!"

(The following lyrics work to the tune of “Comin’ Round the Mountain:”) *

Chorus One:

If we played the Pittsburgh Pirates every day!

If we played the Pittsburgh Pirates every day!

We could glide right to a pennant!

With the Astros sure to win it!

If we played the Pittsburgh Pirates every day!

Chorus Two:

If old Lance could hit ’em twice a bit more often!

If old Lance could hit ’em twice a bit more often!

We could let our hard hearts soften,

‘Stead of shopping for a coffin!

If old Lance could hit ’em twice a bit more often!

Chorus Three:

If sweet Roy could throw those goose eggs every time!

If sweet Roy could throw those goose eggs every time!

He’d be through with Astro-costin’,

‘Cause he’d soon be up at Boston!

If sweet Roy could throw those goose eggs every time!

*Indulge me, folks. This sort of word-rambling is my favorite remaining avenue of celebratory expression.
