"Centerfield" lyrics

Centerfield

Well, a-beat the drum
And hold the phone
The sun came out today
We're born again
There's new grass on the field
A-rounding 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

Well, I spent some time
In the Mudville Nine
Watching it from the bench
You know I took some lumps
When the mighty Case struck out
So say hey, Willie
Tell the Cobb
And Joe DiMaggio
Don't say it ain't so
You know the time is now

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

Yeah, I got it
I got it

Got a beat-up glove
A home-made bat
And a brand new pair of shoes
You know I think it's time
To give this game a ride
Just to hit the ball
And touch them all
A moment in the sun
It's a-gone and you can tell
That one good-bye

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

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 gotta be
Centerfield
Yeah
