The off-season is here
Let’s all celebrate
None of our rivals won the Cup
Isn’t that great?

Of course, we won no hardware either
Because our offense is sub-par
And with Hamlett at the helm
I can’t see us going too far

Go wild & crazy, this winter, Big D
Sign a forward and a couple of defenders
Give me a reason to come out to see the team

Sign Junior and Josef just for me
Bring Long back or else I’ll go off on a bender
And, for old time’s sake, bring back Tim Ream
