Benched

Sitting on this bench     For an entire season     Committed no errors      No strikeouts     No sure what`s the reason     Made love to the manager`s daughter     In the dugout Before the game     Maybe this is the answer       Where I should be putting the blame    Thought I hit a home run      When I heard her scream      Always knew      You were the best on the team     Seems the old man      Was in earshot of this     Told me       Your benched      For going beyond the first kiss      Well I guess      There is always next year      No more homeruns in the dugout      When the old man is near
