The Lyrics

Jose Canseco, can you hit a homerun right now?
In Oakland, big bad city,
Got a pretty face that's better than me
Jose Canseco came into life
and gave it meaning and pure delight
Now, Big Mac's a guy I'd do without
'Cause now I know Jose makes it count

All I say is
(Jose, hit it way deep, yeah yeah yeah)
I'm saying...
Jose, Hit it way deep, yes indeed

Now, he won a title ring right here
But got beat by Cincy next year
And then you traded down to Texas
Where it's also the home of the Nolan Express
A pretty face got some Red Sox taste
and then the Angels took your place

I can still say...
(Jose, hit it way deep, yeah yeah yeah)
I can still say
Jose, hit it way deep, oh baby, oh yeah
(oh yeah, oh yeah)

(Jose, hit it way deep, yeah yeah yeah)
(Jose, hit it way deep, oh yeah)
Yes, it is

My friends say, "What's White Sox to you?"
Well, my answer is that he did it true
Returned to Oakland for his personality
and went up east with his Yankee quality
In Tampa Bay, Jose had his time
And the fans heard him say before he retired

Let's say it...
(Jose, hit it way deep, yeah yeah yeah)
And I believed that...
Jose hits it way deep

By the time I was an A's lover (oh yeah)
I saw Mr. Canseco on the cover (Oh yeah)
He plays defense on the outside (oh yeah)
But can stroke dingers on the inside (oh yeah)
