Fight Songs

  1. Been Caught Stealing” by Jane’s Addiction

    Played when the Chihuahuas take the field

    I’ve been caught stealing
    Once when I was 5
    I enjoy stealing
    It’s just as simple as that
    Well, it’s just a simple fact
    When I want something,
    I don’t want to pay for it
    I walk right through the door
    Walk right through the door
    Hey all right!
    If I get by, it’s mine
    Mine all mine!
    My girl, she’s one too
    She’ll go and get her a shirt
    Stick it under her skirt
    She grabbed a razor for me
    And she did it just like that
    When she wants something, she don’t want to pay for it
    She walk right through the door
    Walk right through the door
    Hey all right!
    If I get by, it’s mine
    Mine all mine!
    We sat around the pile
    We sat

    You think you beating chuco town, we thinking no not today,

    Chihuahua nation standing strong, good luck is all i can say,

    Have mercy on the other team, after the game we’ll pray, send you away sad face, hope you enjoyed your stay

    Your not the only one we’ll beat, the other teams we’ll slay, they said the game was down in Texas, you thought barrels of hay,

    Had no idea bout EPT, the 915 on display, Dog pound all day, good pitch we swinging away, and after slugging home-runs, your pitcher gets a bouquet,

    Won’t hesitate to steal a base without a second delay, strategic bunt we make it easy, could be called child’s play, the way we feasting on these points, its like a bone buffet YEAH!


    Second Verse

    Southwest Park, it be the place we feel that warm embrace, and for that triple A crown we tryna be in the chase,

    The new dogs in the yard, we wanna be in the race, we playing hard in every game we will be pleading our case,

    We need support from all our fans so please keep showing ya face, Is west side in the place, how about the east side today,

    Central and the lower valley – is the North here today, EL SEGUNDO BARIOOOOOOOOO is ft bliss in the place,

    Horizon city and Socorro, Thanks for coming today, and all surrounding other cities help us get on that base,

    Chico’s pumping up the crowd, somebody start up the wave, day of the dead, cause we send the other team to the grave,

    We making so much noise they scared to come out the cave, barking loud in their ear, dog pound behave,

    No one can hear your cry for help, nobodies coming to save; EPT is where we stay, in history we engrave – YEAH!
