lyrics

Some guys win when the game is tied
In the bottom of the ninth with two men out
Some guys lose on the other side
That's what the game is all about

From what I can tell I know it so well
Having watched it night and day
Some guys win and some guys lose
At least they get to play

Some guys swing when it's do or die
They hit the ball and drive in runs
Some guys watch strike three go by
And think that they're the unlucky ones

From what I can tell it's all just as well
They'll get their cuts another day
Some guys win and some guys lose
At least they get to play

Oh to round those bases and score the winning run
Oh to be like Willie Mays
All those seasons in the sun
They told me my chances are a million now to one
I wish that I was young
Young again

For I still love this game
I do, I love it all
I love the sound a piece of good wood can make
On the sweet spot of a ball

From what I can tell I know it so well
Having listened night and day
Some guys win and some guys lose
At least they get to play
At least they get to play
