The Cardinals began a stretch

A great one without distress 

It started in Houston 

The pitching staff giving a big boostin'

The players had a break

Some coaches and players went to Table Rock Lake

Carpenter took the hill

The Dodgers hopes went downhill

Holliday hitting with great power

The opposing team's pitchers felt sour

That faithful Sunday began

The hitters in the last two innings looked like Stan

Allen Craig with a great birthday

Holliday wins the game with great play

Kendrick had a great start

The feeling afterward in his mouth was great tart

Mike Shannon calling of get up

Pujols started the great turn-up

Moyer had strained his elbow

The Cardinals felt no sorrow for the next fellow 

In question was the winning Carpenter

The Phillies Carpenter was not a great factor

Winn hit the ball with great force

Charlie Manuel's face with great discourse

Pitched today a young rookie

The weather outside was quite stuffy

The streak continued on to eight

The team in a great state

The players look forward to tomorrow

Luck the Cardinals do not need to borrow

For extending to nine

Would be a task completed so divine 

Though the task not completed today

I have little feeling of dismay
