The Lyrics

Can't seem to remember, who's on pitcher's mound,
Base on balls, who's scorin', confusion does abound.
Batter's in their cages,
Tryin' score a run,
Lou does wonder, he does wonder,
Who's what's his name?

Who can't be the pitcher, now I ask who's on first base?
Who's the guy you'd label, walked a while ago?
Who's the guy that you feel,
Second base he claims?
Got to wonder, still must wonder,
Don't Know's his name.

--- Instumental break ---

Who's the player standing, down near first base bag?
He was the last batter, they hit him in the leg.
What's his name they're callin'?
Known by all his peers,
I still wonder, how I wonder,
Who's what's his name?

Here's my highest parody-writing compliment, Guy: I wish I had thought of this first.

I've been sketching to TOS earlier this week; "Who'll be the Pope", but gave it up on behalf of Steppenwolf. Why? God only knows.

Thanks everyone for your interest. I figured with baseball season beginning again this would be the perfect way to celebrate a new season with one of my most favored comic routines. Play Ball!

(ABCW) Good job. Looks like the 1-voter has struck again :(

Awesome reworkings of the greatest comedy skit of all time. This and 7-words you can't say on TV are classic comedy skits, now somebody needs to turn that one into a song.

(ABC) A long fly ball to Because! Why? Because this was funny and I do give a darn.
Max Power - July 15, 2008 - Report this comment
Sound like Sabathia pitching

(ABC) see above - the whole routine is so funny, it's genius, and coming up with the idea to honour it using this OS is brilliant too - one question though: how come you didn't rhyme the first two lines of the second verse? anyway, it's very clever Guy

(ABC4-W) Excellent tribute to a great comedy routine. 555 for you! Who? That's the guy!

I thought it was really creative, I wasn't familiar with that comedy skit though as it predates me, so I did need to watch the show to get it--very interesting.
