Lets play two today

Inspired by this post (and my comment there), I decided to work every major league team into the lyrics of Cole Porter's "Let's Do It".

God help me, here goes:

Cubs do it, Sox do it,
Even Bible-thumping Rox do it,
Lets do it
Lets play two today

Rays do it, Jays do it,
Cards in their rebuilding phase do it,
Lets do it
Lets play two today

(bridge)
Do the Bucs, to empty stands, do it?
We'll just take it on faith.
In L.A., Dodger fans do it,
But they're gone by the eighth.

(chorus)
M's do it, O's do it,
A's and ex-Expos do it,
Lets do it,
Lets play two today

The Rangers -- worst in the West -- do it,
The Padres when they're feeling blessed do it,
Mets do it
Lets play two today

(bridge)
Giants with good vibes do it
Not to mention the Fins.
Why ask if the Tribe do it?
Watch them take on the Twins.

(chorus)
H-town's struggling 'Stros do it,
SoCal's hard-to-place Halos do it,
Lets do it
Lets play two today.

Royals in KC do it,
D'backs blasting the AC do it,
Reds do it,
Lets play two today.

(bridge)
Down south, Atlanta Braves do it,
To a tomahawk beat.
Detroit Tigers, to big raves, do it --
Just don't park on the street.

(chorus)
In New York, gold-plated Yanks do it,
Phillies -- those ill-fated cranks -- do it,
Lets do it,
Lets play two today!
