A New Pirate Generation

It occurred to me that those of you from outside the Pittsburgh area might not fully appreciate my blog’s title without the following information.  Here are the lyrics to the theme song of the Pittsburgh Pirates played after home games at PNC Park:

Take me out to where the Pirates play

Catch the sights, cheer the plays, feel the glory of yesterday

Centerfield, grand slams, fans and Cracker Jack

Crowd cheers, I don’t care if I ever get back

I listen to the game with my radio on

Clap along to the rhythm of a Bucco song

Two aboard, full count with nobody out

Stomp your feet, line drive everybody shout

Root, root, root for our home team

A new Pirate generation everybody shout, "Let’s Go Bucs!"

With every slide there’ll be Pittsburgh pride

At the ol’ ball game everybody shout, Let’s Go Bucs!

Cross the bridge, through the gate to the field of green

Young and old stories told from your childhood dream

Pops, Wagner, Traynor, Maz, and heroes yet to be named

Great catch, clutch hits like Clemente played

I listen to the game with my radio on

Clap along to the rhythm of a Bucco song

Two aboard, full count with nobody out

Stomp your feet, line drive everybody shout

Root, root, root for our home team

A new Pirate generation everybody shout, "Let’s Go Bucs!"

this song says it all about Pittsburgh. I love it!

I always sing the second verse,
Cross the bridge, through the gate to the field of dreams

Young and old black and gold from your childhood dreams
