Wait til next year

Just a few words, I’m compelled to recite,

The Stanley cup finals are finally in sight.

So much to say, but let me be brief,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.

Each season opens with promise and hope,

The fans screaming YES, the team answers NOPE.

With unquestioned passion and total belief,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.

Forty-eight seasons of utter despair,

Very few playoffs but we didn’t care.

They steal your heart, like a common thief,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.

Things will look down but then things can look up,

We all know the date of their last Stanley Cup.

Lester B. Pearson had defeated old Dief,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.

That was the year Donald fathered, a Keifer,

The cup was Toronto’s we were all a Beleafer.

Each season since, has transformed into grief,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.

From Sittler to Gilmour from Sundin to Clark,

Forty-eight seasons we’re left in the dark.

It is hard to explain the unbridled devotion,

Like that mystery plane in the Indian Ocean.

Where is the cup? is like where is the beef?

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.

To be a leaf fan, is not hard to master,

Though records might show this team’s a disaster.

We long for the days of Big M and the Chief,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.

From Maple Leaf Gardens to the new ACC,

Changing location was hardly the key.

It a beautiful view like the Great Barrier Reef,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.

One can get suicidal as a losing streak grows,

But it can’t last forever, as every fan knows.

So I put my shiny knife back in its sheath,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leath.

This team of distinction, this team that we honour,

Each draft we never acquire a Connor?

McDavid’s an Oiler, there is no relief,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.

But it’s nice when the playoffs don’t have your team,

You sleep well at night with your Stanley Cup dream.

So we might lose our minds, but not our belief,

Wait til next year my team Maple Leaf.
