Just Wait Until Next Year (lyrics)

Listen (MP3)

I sit watching the World Series
Texas and St. Lou
Here we're expecting snow flurries
Winter's almost due.
The Twins lost 99 games this year
The Vikings are one and five
But we are morally superior
And hope is still alive.

Just wait until next year
Justice will be done.
You'll be crying in your beer
And we'll be number one.
Victory's temporary
15 minutes of fame
We're out here on the prairie
And about to get our game.

The Gophers losing today
To Nebraska's Big Red
We're gonna be okay
Next year, he said
We'll be doing the interviews
And talking about our self
You'll be singing the blues
In 2012.

You just wait until next year Minnesota will rise
The meek will inherit the earth
Won't you be surprised
The righteous will triumph
Triumph we must
The odds, we'll defy them
They'll eat our dust

Just you wait, bye and bye

Next year.
Just you wait.
We'll celebrate
We will cheer
Next year.
