The Lyrics

I'm really big into baseball, so I thought I'd write about it.
Chorus: I just drove a base hit out into center field
My coach shouts, “Take two!”
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I guess the hit that I just got wasn’t enough
So I take two!
Man he’s such a fool!
Said, “Next time don’t wager, then I would be safer!”
Shoot, but now I am out (Now he is out!)
And although it counts as a hit
One more run we won’t get
Failed to take two!
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Verse 1: Coach I’m sorry
But I am not a Ferrari
But that don’t mean I can’t play some ball
I guess I’m no cheetah, not on no safaris
It’s a game we play before the Fall
I stepped to the plate
I didn’t know my fate, uh
(Oh yeah that’s a long single)
Well (Make it a two base jingle)
Ooooooooooh!
I tried to go for two
No, got tagged out diving for second base

Chorus: I just drove a base hit out into center field
My coach shouts, “Take two!”
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I guess the hit that I just got wasn’t enough
So I take two!
Man he’s such a fool!
Said, “Next time don’t wager, then I would be safer!”
Shoot, but now I am out (Now he is out!)
And although it counts as a hit
One more run we won’t get
Failed to take two!
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Verse 2: Now listen
Ways to get to second
Hit and run, or steal, or cheat
Tryin’ to win yeah!
Tryin’ again yeah!
Cuz playing games under your ass no breeze
I pity the fans
Who watch us lose again, uh
(Oh crap he’s a bad coacher)
Well (Just wait ‘til it’s all over)
Ooooooooooooh!
I’ve got a better plan
Ooh, I really hate this game right now!

Chorus: I just drove a base hit out into center field
My coach shouts, “Take two!”
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I guess the hit that I just got wasn’t enough
So I take two!
Man he’s such a fool!
Said, “Next time don’t wager, then I would be safer!”
Shoot, but now I am out (Now he is out!)
And although it counts as a hit
One more run we won’t get
Failed to take two!
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Bridge: “Now player, player, player”
“Why’d ya go and, go and get yourself out?!”
(You out, you out, you out)
I tried to be much safer but this coach just
Made me think of some doubts
(More doubts, more doubts, more doubts)
Yes I did, and I was like
Uh, why?!
Uh, why?!
Uh, why Coach Briggs?!
Oh, we lost now!
Oh, lost cuz of you!
Ooooh!

Chorus: I just drove a base hit out into center field
My coach shouts, “Take two!”
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I guess the hit that I just got wasn’t enough
So I take two!
Man he’s such a fool!
Said, “Next time don’t wager, then I would be safer!”
Shoot, but now I am out (Now he is out!)
And although it counts as a hit
One more run we won’t get
Failed to take two!
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Take 5s. Security code: 5VV, which is Romarabian for 555. Interesting.

Not a huge baseball fan, but nice idea going with the OS. You're safe here, 555!

(ABC) It's a "HIT"! and it ran into extra innings...555 of them

Not bad, I am not a baseball fan either, but you made it make sense to me and entertaining. Now here is a challenge for you: rewrite the same parody using the censored "Forget You"!

I've been wanting to do a parody of this song for awhile now but nothing came to mind. Well done here.

(ABC) As you know, I'm a huge baseball person, so I LOVED this one.

(ABC) Definitely not a baseball fan, though that's mainly due to my country plays cricket instead of baseball. That aside, this isn't one of your best parodies, it's just kinda bland and repetitive, though maybe that's the OS working against you, I dunno. Sorry man, it's just you've shown you can do better.

(ABC) Next time he says take two, hit coach in the leg with the bat twice. (LOVE THIS!)

Good song, pacing was very well done and I'm a sports fan so I got it.
