The Lyrics

After three hockey parodies yesterday, time to go back to the National Pastime. Original written by Pete Seeger.
Well, the batter went up with a bat in his fist.
And he swung at a fastball and he really missed.
Then he swung and he missed at another and then
and then...

Oh, Lord, well, he missed it again.
Because
he had missed it, swinger did whine.
He had, uh-uh
missed it, swinger did whine.
(Swinger did whine!)

Well, he swung really hard, didn't hear the good word
and he came back up to the plate in the third.
He had a lot of courage and he had lots of nerve
but then, whoops, oh Lord, he missed a hanging cuvve!

Because
he had missed it, swinger did whine.
He had, uh-uh
missed it, swinger did whine.
(Swinger did whine!)

Well, he's struck out twice and that's really no jive
but he came back up in inning number five.
A fastball on the corner, he just had to chase
and then, whoops, oh Lord, he left two men on base!

Because
he had missed it, swinger did whine.
He had, uh-uh
missed it, swinger did whine.
(Swinger did whine!)

Well, his strikeouts, he didn't want to reach four
but the Mets had a rally, they were knockin' on the door.
Our hero stepped right up to the plate
but then, whoops, oh Lord, ends the inning of eight!

Because
he had missed it, swinger did whine.
He had, uh-uh
missed it, swinger did whine.
(Swinger did whine!)

Well, down to Triple-A, this batter did go.
Got to thinking 'bout what happened back up in The Show.
Got a lot of practice, thought he's ending the pain
but then, whoops, struck out when they called him up again!

Because
he had missed it, swinger did whine.
He had...
Uh-uh...
missed it...

Swinger did whine!
(Swinger did whine!)

I'm sure the dude reached 3+2 on at least 3 of those Ks. That adds up to 555. :-)

555 as I love this OS, and the swing of batter along with the constant strike-Outs is depressing . . Thanks for bringing back this tune; I wonder where Mr Jim Rodgers is today? I also liked his Oh, The Honey Wind Blows" circa 1960?? He was a great folk song writer!
