Belle, Baerga, Visquel, Ramirez,
Lofton, Alomar,
Cleveland’s heroes you’ll be crown’d.
You make Lake Erie’s shores resound.

Nagy, Martinez, Clark, Tavarez,
Orel, Ogea,
Mesa: Masters of the mound.
You make Lake Erie’s shores resound.

Your exciting baseball,
exciting baseball play.
Oh, if you could win it all:
playoffs, American League, yes, win it all —
World Series — we’d be standing tall.
We’d celebrate,
we’d celebrate the glories of the day
the glories, the glories of the day!

  Come all ye baseball fans
Wahoo! Hooray!

To Jacob’s Field we’ll go
see the Indians play.

Lift all your voices
their labors repay
Let’s celebrate
Let’s celebrate their triumphant day.

Buy me some peanuts,
forever we’ll stay.
Let’s celebrate
Let’s celebrate their triumphant day.
