Is being quiet having heart?
Because I haven't heard a Phillies fan from the start.
It's 3-1 so just throw it in the bag.
27 rings to be, I think we are allowed to brag.
It's ok there's always next year, fans.

Go ahead, brag if you must
That the Yanks will leave us in the dust.

Till it's over" -- in Cliff Lee we trust!

I know nothing about baseball
But as I read about this squall
between the Phillies and the Yanks
I feel excited but still a little dank
What a shame no one can win them all!
