Play ball!! I heard the ump say...
Stepped to the plate so full of pride
That humble pitcher cannot hide
My cocky smile must be a mile wide
Strike one!!! I heard the ump say
Oh, I stared the pitcher in the eye
I so am going to make you cry, I'll
Hit the cover off ball it's going to fly
Strike two!!! I heard the ump say
A home run, now you're gonna see
The pitcher's shame is my glad glee
Yes, a hero's welcome soon will be
But instead I heard, Strike three!!!
I stood there frozen feeling lame
The pitcher said Guzzi's my name
Raised her cap she was a dame
Struck me out three times that game!
