The Lyrics

The story of a Little League, overweight eleven year old who's debating a tough situation that many get in when it comes to baseball of any sort. Song number 24, and I will be one away from the magical 25.
Andrew steps up to the side of the plate
Three on and nobody out now
Down by three, bottom of the ninth
They're hoping he'll take one downtown
Oh, but thinking too hard cause panic attack-ack-ack-ack-acks
You oughta know by now (you oughta know by now)
Up next is Eric Happensack
The best home run hitter
It would seem such a waste of time
Your average leaves a doubt
Give Happensack a chance, cause you're striking out!
You're striking out!

Pitcher O'Meare started him outside
Umpire called it a strike, wow
Bill Malarkey's been living off of Allentown Drive
Ten miles from the town center
Pitch two, he fouls it back-ack-ack-ack-ack
You oughta know by now (you oughta know by now)
You weren't much of an 0-2 hitter
These fans want to see one go out
As far as the ball can go
That's what it's all about
Now you're down 0-2, you should just strike out!
You're striking out!

You should never doubt Eric Happensack-ack-ack-ack
You oughta know by now (you oughta know by now)
Too late, the third one is past you
Malarkey raised up his right hand

O'Meare was just wasting time
Happensack would drive one out
Yeah, we won the darn game
Cause you... just struck out!
You just struck out!

(Sound of bus revving, drving away after victory as song fades)

Hey, Andrew, great song. I hear of this situation a lot in baseball and most of the time batters don't think of this. I like the creative names too (O'Meare, Eric Happensack, Bill Malarkey). Great job. Have some 5's.

Sounds like your experience in little league was similar to mine =)

Barry, Jeff, thanks. I never was in little league, but was overweight, as mentioned. Sports are no fun anymore because of the pressure to win, instead of just having a blast like they are supposed to. I wrote this in response to a co-worker at WallyWorld who told me this story about their son, how he was forced to strike out with the bases packed and zero outs in the last inning so that the next batter, the team's leader in homers, could have a chance at winning the game, not the poor kid who "sacrificed" for the team's sake. I find that to be a shame. I picked "Movin' Out" by Billy Joel because I had heard the song so many times (Joel's one of my favorites, as I have now done 5 parodies of his) and found myself making up the words as I go, then I penned it last night in 10 minutes, as I do all my other songs. Thanks for the comments, now I'm striking out!
