WASHINGTON — Your 2016 Nationals postseason anthem has arrived.

Keith Elgin, a D.C. based solo artist and founder of 360 Collective, remixed Taylor Swift’s 2014 hit single “Shake It Off,” putting a Nationals spin on it ahead of their NLDS matchup against the Dodgers.

Elgin’s “2016 Nats Playoffs Theme” — which he co-wrote with his brother, Nate, and debuted Wednesday on 106.7 The Fan’s Grant & Danny Show — is available for purchase on iTunes, with 100 percent of proceeds going to Nationals Youth Baseball Academy.

The chorus mirrors Swift’s, but instead highlights Bryce Harper, Dusty Baker, Max Scherzer, Trea Turner, Daniel Murphy and Ryan Zimmerman with its lyrics, while other lines in the song — like “Jose Lobatoning” — reference other Nationals players:

Harper gonna rake, rake, rake, rake, rake
Dusty gonna bake, bake, bake, bake, bake
Scherzer gonna K, K, K, K, K
Playoffs, playoffs

Lead-off hits from Trea, Trea, Trea, Trea, Trea
Murphy hits for days, days, days, days, days
Zimm with diving plays, plays, plays, plays, plays
Playoffs, playoffs

Another notable lyric: “Hey, hey, hey! Just think, while you’ve been getting down and out and worrying about the Cubs and the Dodgers of the world, you could have been underestimating this… sick… team.”
