The Lyrics

there's a ball that whistles down the line
a triple, cause the runner beat the tag in time
least the scoreboard said it went that way
if you're sittin' in the bleachers, you can't see the play

see that runner steamin' 'round the bend
its lookin' like the coach gave the OK to send
guess the pitcher's curveball went astray
if you're sittin' in the bleachers, you can't see the play

here he comes
woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-woo
oh man, i should be flippin' my wig
woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-oo-woo-woo
i cannot see the action, here...the park's too big

i can hear the sounds and smell the smells
but when it comes to seein', its just hard as hell
sure, the ticket's cheap, but then you pay
if you're sittin' in the bleachers, you can't see the play

Very clever title, but...
If the runner beat the tag, it wasn't in time, and
the coach either sends the runner or gives the OK to run, he doesn't give the OK to send.
