Home Game

Here’s to the team that still lines up
When their record’s 0 and 10
Here’s to the hours of practice drills
When a beating looms again

Here’s to the men and women who
Everyday, go out to fight
In a battle they won’t win
And who still press on, despite

Though their fans might be but few
Still they strive to be their best
Every day, they work for more
Every night, they’ve earned their rest

Life’s a game that we all lose
So, let’s not our time misspend:
Going on to fight the fight
Makes us winners in the end
