The Lyrics

And now, on the 0-2 pitch...
Keep your eye on that ball
You gotta swing a big, fat Rawlings to hit that ball
A pitch is coming your way
1 more strike, and your chance at bat is gone
3 strikes and you're out
3 strikes and you're out

Think of it as whiffing
You can strike it out and have to let that slide
Think of what i'm saying
You can make a hit, get a homerun or goodbye
3 strikes and you're out
3 strikes and you're out

It's the 0-2 pitch and there's no time
For you just standing, my friend
It's now 2 outs up in the 9th
You blew the game once again
The ball was in your way
You swung the bat too low, and now you gotta go
There's another game
There's a chance to make your batting stance longer
3 strikes and you're out
3 strikes and you're out

(repeat last verse)

Hmmmm, I thought that the original was by the Beatles. On the other hand, if Stevie has a version, I'd love to hear it.
