The Lyrics

OK, so it's not baseball season - probably as far from it as it can get, but my muse has a funny sense of humor and so she's got me writing baseball parodies in November.
I’m hearing, “Strike three”, man, that call; it was bad
I seethe and sneer
I know you don’t know a strike from your ass
your crank from your rear
I grumbled, then said, “Man, you stink, you’re an inept
pathetic ass”
He said to me, “Friend, you will live to regret this”
And then he laughed

“Had my fill, you are wrong, I think
you are crazy and boy
you’d better watch the things you say
Best to chill and think a bit
or get thrown out of the game”

You know you’ve been slumping, your average is bad
You’re real uptight
Depressed that you’ve left men on base, yeah, and man
that sure does bite
You press and you swing like a dame, yes, the fans howl
“You stink”, they boo
You’ve taken the collar, you bum, you won’t play now
You’re benched now, dude

[brief instrumental break]

“That last pitch was a ball, you fink”
and you stay annoyed at that ump
you rant; get in his face
He said, “Chill, and stifle it”
Then he told me, “Go away”

[instrumental break]

Protested; I spewed out some phrases; I raged on
Said things to dude
“You stink”, I did holler, then thumb he displayed out
He said, “You’re through”

[brief instrumental break]

That was it, I was gone, “ka-ching”
have to face it; a dumb mistake
My ass thrown from the game
Think I’ll be suspended and
coach will bench me; won’t get paid…

[brief instrumental to end]

Interesting...your muse is a 'she'? Never thought of them as either. Loved the parody...no wonder he got thrown out...he ranted so much! 5's

alvin, that's a treasured compliment since I know how well you know the game. JB, yes it has...it happens I've recently written several similarly-themed batter-umpire parodies to OS material from Steely Dan's "Countdown to Ecstacy" LP. Pat, well OF COURSE Ms. Muse is a "she" - yeah, he sure did '**gripe' a lot . ** Except I didn't say gripe...site program wouldn't let me use the "b" word that means "complain"...Geez...I'm sorry, but that's plain blue-nosed prudishness in my book...oh, well ~ ~ ~

I wanted to balk when I started reading this but then I wanted to ball until that last strike about stink so now I want out. Fun read from start to finish. The OS was fuzzy in my head so I cheated and used youtube. It was worth the listen just for the read. You get 5 outs this inning for a fine performance. Run with those 5s.
