Wait 'till Next Year

Words and Music by Brian Fife


Listen to the MP3 clip


I heard that this would be our year;
Looks like we finally had a winner here.
Expectations ran so high;
We believed and never questioned why.
But somewhere in the middle
of those long hot summer days,
The wheels came off and then
I heard that old familiar phrase.

Chorus
Wait 'til next year! We'll be right there.
We'll raise that trophy high into the air.
Wait 'til next year! We'll get 'em then.
This losing streak is coming to an end.
Wait 'til next year.

I bought my tickets at the door,
Just like I did so many times before.
Hope springs eternal once again,
Just like those childhood days of way back when.
And I don't know why I'm hangin' on
through the heartache and the pain.
But when I want to walk away, I hear that old refrain. (Chorus)

Our hopes we watch them slowly fade.
Looks like we won't be having that parade.
But I hear they've got a plan,
To finally take us to that promised land.

Final Chorus
Wait 'til next year! We'll be right there.
We'll raise that trophy high into the air.
Wait 'til next year! We'll get 'em then.
This losing streak is coming to an end.

Wait 'til next year! We'll be right there.
We'll raise that trophy high into the air.
Wait 'til next year! We'll get 'em then.
This losing streak is coming to an end.
Get on your feet and cheer,
'Cause next year is here.
Next year is here.
NEXT YEAR IS HERE!!!
