The Lyrics

ol' houk said, "now, roger, son, hit me a ton"
rog says, "ralph, you must be puttin' me on"
houk say, "no"....rog say, "what ?"
houk says, "i've seen you take some...vicious cuts"
"the next ball you see comin'...give it both guns"
well, rog say, "just what is your requested sum ?"
houk says. "you'll hit home run 61"

well, he and mantle were...pretty close
at one point mick was leadin' rog by a nose
the disabled list was where he had to go
and maris passed him, as you might suppose
mick said, "i'm still sick...but you go have fun"
while mantle just sat there restin' on his buns
rog was on his way to home run 61

well frick was sittin' then as baseball's king
he said, "there's no way i can pull no strings"
"he may reach the quota, but here's the thing"
"ruth set the record with a lot less swings"
and ford frick said, "let me think for a minute, son"
then he said, "yes, if the babe is undone...
an asterisk goes by home run 61"

now rog was just fodder for the press, alright
hair fell out durin' the season's height
the compassion was spare as the balls took flight
they said, "ho-hum", and treated it light
he was puzzled, quite
as he struggled with the...record run
but he wouldn't quit until the deed was done
and he kept on seekin' home run 61

yes, he was hittin' ample as reporters snored
he was tryin' to be great but was just ignored
finally got to sixty but he needed one more
he said, "no one ever hit this many taters before"
but then he proved it could very easily done
and tracy stallard was the chosen one
who gave up that historic home run 61

Great baseball flashback on a hard song. 555

It's impossible to hit a five-run homer in baseball, but here, yeah, I believe it has been very easily done. Proving that... atrocious pun alert... We Didn't Start With McGwire.
