This slideshow is a bit short, but it reworks each verse of the Chicago Bears fight song that is played at every home game after a score.

The original lyrics were composed in 1941 by a Mr. Al Hoffman. The actual lyrics are as follows:

Bear down, Chicago Bears, make every play clear the way to victory;
Bear down, Chicago Bears, put up a fight with a might so fearlessly.
We'll never forget the way you thrilled the nation with your T-formation.
Bear down, Chicago Bears, and let them know why you're wearing the crown.
You're the pride and joy of Illinois, Chicago Bears, bear down.

This spoof is in no way to poke fun at Mr. Hoffman's work, but is more aimed at taking what is currently a frustrating and depressing time of the season and making a joke out of it...

...Not that the actual Chicago Bears haven't already made a joke out of the season, but you know what I mean.

I will say that it helps to know the tune, so as you read through it, you have a better understanding of how that goes.
