We've Been Waiting

Posted on March 30, 2012 at 5:30 PM
Filed Under: St. Louis Cardinals
You probably have blocked out of your memory, but back before pitchers and catchers reported, I tied a number of the Cardinal hitters to the songs on Adele's album 21, which had just won a number of Grammys.  Well, I'm going back to that well that I never should have gone to in the first place.

About the only upbeat and happy song that Adele has out of her two albums is called "I'll Be Waiting".  Sometime in the last month, I thought that it would be a great song to rework to show our anticipation of the season that is to come.  Unlike a number of my other stabs at parody, this one took more than an hour and one sitting to write.  I've worked on it for quite a while and, while it's still not great, it's as good as it's going to get.  If you aren't familiar with the original, I've embedded it in this post.  Hopefully you will enjoy!  (If not, don't trash me too hard!)


We've Been Waiting

It's getting closer, it's almost time,
So much has happened since we said goodbye.
Raffy stayed here, Beltran's in
Albert left for new waters,
But you still can win,
Missed the game under winter's sky,
Viewed every blogger and read every line,
The trophy came home to St. Lou,
You were the greatest, this is true,

Seemed we had time against us,
A strike between us
We almost cried
Then Freese left us speechless,
And now the sky is clear and it's blue,
And we can see that green grass too,

We've been waiting for you to be ready to play ball again,
Mike says "Get up", year's new
Not much is different
Since we happily flew,
We've been waiting for you to be ready to play ball again,
Mike says "Get up", year's new
Not much is different
Since we happily flew,

Watch Berkman swing, with all his might
See the ball hit bat now,
And soar into the night,
It's awesome to see that Waino's strong
It's time to play now, for the curveball to burn,

Seemed we had time against us,
A strike between us
We almost cried
Then Freese left us speechless,
And now the sky is clear and it's blue,
And we can see that green grass too,

We've been waiting for you to be ready to play ball again,
Mike says "Get up", year's new
Not much is different
Since we happily flew,
We've been waiting for you to be ready to play ball again,
Mike says "Get up", year's new
Not much is different
Since we happily flew,

Time against us,
Strike between us,
Heavens cried,
Then Freese left us speechless,
Time against us,
Strike between us,
Heavens cried,
Then Freese left us speechless,
Then Freese left us speechless,
We've been waiting,

We've been waiting for you to be ready to play ball again,
Mike says "Get up", year's new
Not much is different
Since we happily flew,
We've been waiting for you to be ready to play ball again,
Mike says "Get up", year's new
Not much is different
Since we happily flew
