At last the Cardinals can truthfully say
Stand aside we are champions of all we survey.
However as a Pirates fan it’s a pain in the butt
All I can think to say: so freakin’ what!
And when it’s the Cardinals vs Texas I’ll confess
That I care, please believe, a whole lot less.
But this year I did become slightly involved
And I thought about it until the problem was solved.
It concerned Albert Pujols and what would he do
Would he stay in St. Louis or try something new.
I hear he wants 30M to stay… bless my soul
That’s almost the entire Pirates payroll.
He had one great game where he really got hot
But other than he didn’t do diddley squat.
But I think he will leave the Cardinals and strange as it seems
End up with the Red Sox eating those Boston beans.
The BoSox can afford him and I can dream
You see, Boston in my favorite American League team.
So Albert let me make one thing perfectly clear,
Please… oh, please put St. Louis in your rear view mirror.
