Where's the Nationals' Novelty Song?

I grew up a Chicago Cubs fan. The Cubbies are still my first love, though when I moved to Maryland six years ago I adopted the Nats as my local team (passing over the closer O's) because the Nats needed the love. The Cubs have given me many things over the years — they've given me hope, they're broken my heart, they've taught me patience.

And they've given me novelty songs. Steve Goodman's "Go Cubs Go." Eddie Vedder's "All the Way." The first, a rousing song written about the 1984 team. The last, a melancholy song about the travails of the long-suffering Cubs fan. Inspiring songs. Even beloved songs. Songs that speak to being a fan.

The Nats haven't given me those things yet. Exciting baseball, yes. A gorgeous stadium, yes. Teddy, absolutely. But I have to ask. Where's the Nationals' novelty song?

Where's the song that personifies Nationals fandom? Where's the song that encapsulates the season? Where is "Go Nats Go"?

I don't know the local music scene well enough to take a guess at who would write such a novelty song. Nor do I know what the song would be. A song about Strasburg's arm, Harper's eye black, Werth's beard, Clippard's specs, and Teddy's futility would be good for this season, but perhaps it should be something timeless, in the way that "Go Cubs Go" is timeless.

Natitude needs a novelty song.
