It's Opening Day

It’s Opening Day And the new spring brings the same dream, As the green and gold faithful awake. Throw on your cap, bitter winter has given way.

Echoes of familiar cracks, Line drives in the dry and distant Arizona sun. Cold, hardened hearts warm, The season has begun.

Forget the sting of seasons past. Forget bitterness and doubt. Buy into possibility That we will be standing after the final out.

Today is our new chance To raise up together and stand. So we can shout over and over, Let’s Go Oakland.

That is why we come. That is why we stAy. That is why we cheer. And that is why they play.

It’s our year, See you at the ballpark, It’s Opening Day.
