Creed's Scott Stapp Belts New Florida Marlins Anthem, "Marlins Will Soar," Lyrics Included

Scott Stapp really has a baseball-shaped dome, doesn't he?
​The happiest moment of Crossfade's day so far was transcribing the full lyrics for Scott Stapp's new musical wet kiss to the Florida Marlins, "Marlins Will Soar." After the tepid reception his National Anthem performance received at the Marlins' home opener, it's kind of a surprise that anyone would let him near the team.

"Marlins Will Soar"  features Stapp at his typical syllable-streching best: Marlins becomes "mah-a-lins" and day becomes "de-ey-ey." He also stretches the lyrical content a little thin by referring to both "a double play" and "a triple play." Nothing rhyme with "grand slam," or is that just fear of a Chris Coghlan sophomore slump?

A couple lines are a little hard to understand, so if commenters can give a little help, it's most appreciated. Listen to the song and help me with the lyrics after the jump.




"Marlins Will Soar"

Let's play ball, it's game day

We watch strikeouts, base hits, double plays

Take the field, hear the roar of the crowd

Come on Marlins, make us proud

Come on Marlins, make us proud


Keep hoping and dreaming and you will soar

With a little faith and luck, you will soar


One strike, two strikes, swing away

A diving catch, a stolen base

A perfect game, a triple play

A [undistinguishable] play of praise

We're series champs, we [crack of bat?]


Keep hoping and dreaming and you will soar

With a little faith and luck, you will soar


Keep hoping and dreaming and you will soar

With a little faith and luck, you will soar
