Winter's here and we all say
hate to see summer pass away.
Robins all have taken wing
and mockingbirds no longer sing.
The little wren has left her nest
and flown south to take a rest.
All we have are days of gray
that seem to go on day-by-day.
But wait, the Ravens still are here
listen up and have no fear.
Together they will make a team
the likes of which you've rarely seen.
So every cold and dreary Sunday
it will be a glorious fun-day.
Wave the purple, all is fine.
In Baltimore, the sun will shine.
