Back in 1950, the last time the Phils were in the Series with the Yankees, the Delaware County String Band cut a tune called "The Fightin' Phils Polka."

Give a listen here, courtesy of the Polish American Cultural Center.

Lyrics, should you want to sing along at home (a-one anna two anna...):

The Fight, Fight, Fight-in Phils! It's a tough, tough, team to beat.

They're out to win, win ev-'ry day. Every victory is sweet.

Watch em hit that ball a mile; play a game that's packed with thrills.

Get Pa to bring your Mother, Sister and your Brother

Come out to see the Fight-in' Phils. The fight, fight, fight-'in Phils.

 

("Fly, Eagles, Fly" it ain't.)
