Bill Murray puts his own 'Daffy' spin on 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game'

Want to know the secret to nailing a performance of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game?"

According to actor Bill Murray, who performed the song at Friday's Cubs-Indians World Series game, the trick is to "spray it ... don't thhh-ay it!"

The Chicago native performed the classic fight song at the bottom of the seventh inning ("the last chance to order a beer," as he reminded the crowd) in the style of another beloved American icon: Daffy Duck.

And he was sure to let the crowd sub in "Cubbies" for "home team," as per the team's tradition. See his rousing rendition for yourself!

Warning: If you try out Murray's technique at home, you might want to warn the person sitting in front of you.

Or at least offer to buy them that seventh-inning beer.
