The Lyrics

I never thought that I would be writing a song about baseball, because as a European I don't know much about it, but with all the parodies here as of late I can't help picking up pieces of knowledge, and with this tune that I have been working with all week stuck in my head I decided to go for it.
Some win, some lose
And either way the viewer's gonna booze
Some cheer, some cry
They must have a reason why-ay-ay
We hear them talk about it much as they can
Is every American a baseball fan?

Some won, 4 to 3
We guess it must have been a batting spree
With home runs, fast balls
It's on the way to the old famehouse halls
We see you write about it much as you can
Seems every big pen is here a baseball fan's!

Prime time, high pulse
It won't be Yankees 'gainst the Cardinals
Boston, Red Sox
Goin' there, and goin for knocks
Come World Series we will hide in our cans
We shit you not fellas who are baseball fans!
Peter Andersson. Does this make me "enlightened"?

I'm not really into sports, but I'm pretty sure that every other American is a baseball fan! I'll admit to getting into the World Series though...it's pretty exciting.

I don't follow sports very much either, but after the Red Sox clinched the pennant last week, it's been rather exciting. I do remember when they last played in the World Series, though; it was a bummer that they didn't win! Anyway, this parody was pretty good. :)

Thank you Ashkicksass, Serafina and Johnny D.

Not counting the three of you I have to admit that I'm a bit surprised that "...every big pen is here..." so far have missed the opportunity to discretely comment about their batting skills and bat size with smooth references to that line. ;-)

I, too, am happy about the Yankees getting creamed. Anyway, game 3 is tonight in St. Louis; the Red Sox are up two games to none. I'm rooting for the Sox, since they haven't won a World Series in 86 years. Anyway, great parody, k1chyd.

As an American parody, this would only be average (3), but I'm bumping you up a point for not having grown up with the game. By the way, that's "Whitey Ford" -- not "Fjord." And do yourself a favor and DON'T look up the name "Swede Risberg."

Thanx Michael, I'll try to avoid that.
