a musical interlude

From Damn Yankees

yankees.jpgYou've gotta have heart
All you really need is heart
When the odds are sayin' you'll never win
That's when the grin should start
You've gotta have hope
Mustn't sit around and mope
Nothin's half as bad as it may appear
Wait'll next year and hope
When your luck is battin' zero
Get your chin up off the floor
Mister you can be a hero
You can open any door, there's nothin' to it but to do it
You've gotta have heart
Miles 'n miles n' miles of heart
Oh, it's fine to be a genius of course
But keep that old horse
Before the cart
First you've gotta have heart

Jason has offered up some sacrifices to the gods that watch over Bambino's Curse.


Great choice for tuneage!Before my Dad died we all went to see that show at the Schubert in Chicago starring Jerry Lewis as the Devil.I forgot about it till now.Thanks as always

We're pulling for ya (temporarily) over at SR, with our 'Thought of the day' feature

Damn Yankees..... That's not a reference to the play, that's a plea to God

It seems decidedly improper to use a song that was invoked to bring down the Yankees in support of those same Yankees. Good song, though.

Yeah! When them Cubbies sweep the Series, it will be even sweeter against the Yankees.

Nice song, but I'm not sure that "Wait'll next year and hope" is precisely the exhortation you were looking for...

Now, can we bring the Washington Senators back?

Thank you for nothing, Bud and Peter.
