John Fogerty

John Fogerty's, "Centerfield"
Better Lyrics:
This may sound dumb, but on the phone
The team just called to say
They picked me and I’m to go to the field.
Now roundin’ third, and headin’ for home
I’m just about out of breath,
The coach knows but the owner’s ego won’t yield.

‘Don’t put him in, coach,” the fans they all say. No wa-ay!
If he goes in coach, no catch will be made. Today.
We can see he just can’t play the field.
Original Lyrics:
Well, beat the drum and hold the phone - the sun came out today!
We’re born again, there’s new grass on the field.
A-roundin’ third, and headed for home, it’s a brown-eyed handsome man;
Anyone can understand the way I feel.

Oh, put me in, coach - I’m ready to play today;
Put me in, coach - I’m ready to play today;
Look at me, I can be centerfield.
