[BC Solo]

"the last song of the day was my vague swing, as a chicago cubs fan, at the other team in town, the white sox.... it's a good-hearted diss (cause I watch the sox too) called "black sox," which goes out of its way to glorify our beloved cubs.... anyway, after doing it once or twice, I hit on the idea of having everyone sing along, so we did a few takes like that also...." -BC blog, 2004/04/12



on the south side they wait
for shoeless joe to come outside
and say hello to them
on the north side they wait
for mordecai to come outside
and sign an autograph

somebody listen, cause nobody cares
that the black sox are playing today
somebody listen, cause nobody cares
that the cubbies are playing their hearts out

now somebody listen/cause somebody cares
that the cubbies/are winning today
i'm not much for loving
but i'm all up for dares
cause the wind is blowing cross my face



New song from BC's upcoming solo project, mentioned on his blog
