The Lyrics

love baseball....dislike the all-star game
pitching mound, a spot for drubbing slaughter
curves, unsharp are blurred when clubbed with flair
hurlers, sad...they get lit up and how
a rally soon erupts...the tally starts to climb

managers get squirms, when balls uncaught here
guys with bats that beat them are to blame
pitcher changed...but its the same...kapow !
those batters hang in tough
from one through number nine

walking is out...even fouls are loud, well
no striking out...its a joke, thinks...this crowd

fans in stands shout out, "this team is P.U."
(team is P.U.)
titters start to swell from time to time
(time to time)
men get on...they tear the ball apart
the pitcher's on his knees but god pays him no mind

ballgame's a rout...ceding not allowed, well
fans stick it out...though their team may...get plowed

pitcher winds...it sure must suck to be you
(suck to be you)
ling drives start to sail down left field lines
(left field lines)
she is gone !...the distance off the chart
it went six hundred feet..the longest of all time

charlie brown could even make this roster
(make this roster)
charlie brown could even make this roster
(make this roster)
charlie brown could even make this roster
(make this roster)

The song title got me right off the bat. Loved the Charlie Brown reference! I'm in Colorado and wonder if Clint Hurdle mutters that phrase in the dugout. (Rockies have the second worst pitching in baseball, 18 games under .500)

I especially liked the beginning of the second stanza. This OS is so much fun to parody.

Not even a baseball fan at all, but the syllable-matching here is superb. 555+
