1. Baseball Benny ... he was goin’ crazy ... he didn’t know what t’ do
When the baseball strike was goin’ on ... he was really losin’ his cool
Bitin’ his nails ‘n when all-else failied ... you’d find him at a little league game
Up in the bleachers...squintin’ his features like an addict withdrawing in pain
2. But now that the call is to play ball ... even tho, he’s a fanatical fan
He’s feelin’ betrayed but what can ya say ... I guess, the little guy gets it again
Still, Benny’s a sport...he’s just that sort ...hangin’ in there just like an old pro
Buyin’ his ticket ‘stead’a tellin’ ‘em t’ stick it...ain’t that always the way it goes
Baseball Benny ... (Baseball Benny) was climbin’ the stadium walls
But Baseball Benny (Baseball Benny) je’s feelin’ just like he’s been thrown a super curve ball
3. Take me out to the ballgame, why that was Benny’s favorite song
He’d sing it, he’d hum it, he’d whistle, he’d work t’ it, it kept him keepin’ on
But now h don’t know what he’s feelin’ ... you could say he’s a little confused
'cause, more ‘n more it’s (been) soundin’ like the take-me-out-t’-the ballgame blues
