“Let’s Go Padres” Sheet Music (1969)

There was actually an “Official Song of the San Diego Padres” back in 1969 and it was written by an actor by the name of Preston Foster. Looking at his IMDb page it appears he mainly did a bunch of old westerns back in the day and sadly died in 1970. Whether or not the Padres had anything to do with it I don’t know. It was printed by a company called Ozzies Music (which one is still around but I’m not sure if it is the same Ozzies Music). This is quite possibly the longest song ever written using the same words over and over again but here it is typed out in all it’s glory for everyone to sing along with.

Let’s Go Padres, we are out to win!
Let’s Go Padres, we will not give in!
Let’s Go Padres, we will never stop!
We’ll keep goin’, We’ll keep goin’,
‘Til we reach the top.

Let’s Go Padres, hear that mighty cheer,
Let’s Go Padres, hit it outta here.
Let’s Go Padres, we will never fade,
We’ll keep goin’, We’ll keep goin’,
‘Til we’ve got it made!

Let’s Go Padres, we have got good stuff,
Let’s Go Padres, we are rough and tough,
Let’s Go Padres, we are on the ball.
We’ll keep goin’, We’ll keep goin’,
‘Til we win it all!

Let’s Go Padres, now is the time,
Let’s Go Padres, hit it down the line!
Let’s Go Padres, give ’em all a fit.
Sock it to ’em, Sock it to ’em,
Get that great big hit!

Let’s Go Padres, Now’s the time to fight,
Let’s Go Padres, hit it outa sight!
Let’s Go Padres, we will never sag,
We’ll keep goin’, We’ll keep goin’,
‘Til we win the flag!

Oh and guess what? There is even a chorus for individual players that sounds strikingly similar to the 3rd chorus.

Let’s Go *_________, you have got the stuff!
Let’s Go *_________, hang in there real tough!
Let’s Go *_________, Hit it *_________,
Up against the wall!

What’s that? You want a special chorus for bases loaded situations? Well I got just what the doctor ordered!

Let’s Go *_________, you’re a mighty man!
Let’s Go *_________, hit a big grand slam.
Let’s Go *_________, dig in with you cleats,
Hit it *_________, Hit it *_________,
Hit it in the seats!

Now I want to see everyone printing this out and bringing it to games next year so we can all sing together…..or not.

  1. What about the much improved version from the eighties???

    Let’s go Padres, let’s show ’em how it’s done
    Let’s go Padres, let’s have some baseball fun
    Line drives and stolen bases, diving catches
    We’re goin’ places
    Come on….
    Come on…
    Come on…
    Let’s go Padres!

  2. HAHA I remember that! That’s what the Padres are lacking now…..an official song.

  3. Padres have had an official song each year since moving into Petco. They play it at every game. Its new each year.

  4. They keep playing that Gary Hoey “Go Padres” song that has no lyrics and sounds exactly like the Beverly Hills 90210 theme song. I don’t consider that an official song. Not to knock Hoey since he is a great guitar player but that is a horrible horrible horrible song choice by the Padres. Are the fans supposed to get fired up for baseball by thinking about Shannen Doherty?? They haven’t had a decent song since the Keep the Faith days.

  5. Thanks Matt. Those are the lyrics I was looking for. My friends get confused when I sing the first line of that during games!! lol
    Searching for a download tho
