As I celebrate my 100th article, I figure it's time for a song.

(Habs are) Free Fallin'

with apologies to Tom Petty

 

Know a Habs fan, loves Bob Gainey,

Loved Carbo, and his line changes, too.

Know a Habs fan, is crazy about Koivu,

Loves Halak...and Carey Price, too.

 

It's been a long day, down at the Bell Center.

There's a scalper, tryin' to unload some seats.

It's been a bad day, Habs are fightin' for contention.

They're a bad team, don't think anyone disagrees.

 

(chorus)

Habs are free, free fallin'.

Yeah, Habs are free, free fallin'.

 

In the last game, they lost to Toronto,

Had to endure boos from the crowd.

Now my jersey has the stench of failure

One hundred years, let's not be too proud.

 

(chorus)

 

I wanna' ride in a Stanley Cup parade.

I want the Habs to take it all,

but it's a free fall out of the standings

Price can't stop a friggin' beach ball! 

 

Habs are free, free fallin'.

Yeah, Habs are free, free fallin'.

(repeat for the remainder of the season)
