The Lyrics

The "Ordeal" in this song is of course the baseball strike.
there will be more playin'
there wont games left out
try to catch the foul balls in your leather glove
theres a ball game today
many ball games are lost
but now we'll never see the end of the road
'till at least 2003

Hey now, hey now,
the Ordeal's over
Hey now, hey now,
players still playin'
they tried, they tried
to get all the cash they wanted
we thourght they would strike

Now the TV is on
watching the Mets lose
Barry Bonds is hitting hit after hit and the games are cool
In the paper today, tales of the war they raged
But I turn right over to the Baseball page

Hey now, hey now,
the Ordeal's over
Hey now, hey now,
players still playin'
they tried, they tried
to get all the cash they wanted
we thourght they would strike

They're not striking again, like in '94
And I'm counting the wins that the Yankees have got
There will be a World Series, there will be playoffs
Get to watch the players score runs again and again

Hey now, hey now,
the Ordeal's over
Hey now, hey now,
players still playin'
they tried, they tried
to get all the cash they wanted
we thourght they would strike
