The Lyrics

Took us out
To the ball game
Fifty dollars for gas
Bought the kids peanuts
And crackerjacks..
That was eighty bucks
Without the tax..

For the wife and I,
Beer and hot dogs
Some T-shirts, caps,
Logo name..
I blew one, two
Three hundred bucks
At the old ball game!

I blew one, two,
Three hundred bucks
At the old ball game!

Ain't nuthin' cheap anymore. When I was of college age I shared an apartment while furthering my education about three blocks from Forbes Field where the Pirates played back when. We used to sell the parking space in front of the apartment that we rented and then buy a bleacher seat. We'd then head for the ballpark with an empty lunch bag . We would drop the ticket sub off, in the luch bag, to the next guy in line and get about five of us in for the price of one bleacher seat from the parking place we sold where no one owned a car and the concrete property belonged to the city. You've been had for $300.00.

I can remember seeing Roberto Clemente in one game run to the opposite field and put a batter out with a behind the back catch of a deep fly ball and Willy Stargell knock one downtown completely out of the ball park over the right field roof. Try to do this today and yeah it'll cost ya at least $300.00. Ah for the good old days as most of your parodies bring back for us old timers. Thanks for the memories Farce.

I could remember when upper deck seats for the 1975 World Series in Cincinnati were only $10.00. Times have changed, and not for the better. Great job on the parody.

With the George Steinbrenner Memorial Coliseum about to replace the one and only Yankee Stadium, where good seats can still be had for 22 bucks, you get no sympathy from me. Fives, yes; sympathy, no.

Nice modern take on an old classic.

It's true! When I was in your fair country a couple of years ago I took Merry (note: not the other way 'round) to see the Dodgers beat Barry Bonds and whoever all the other Giants were. At some stage I went off to get (as I recall) a couple of Burgers, some fries, and a drink of Coke which I swear the smallest one I could get would have been about two gallons! The cost was almost as much as the tickets! And, had I known getting out of the carpark at Dodger Stadium would have taken as long as the game (truly) I would have retained some of it for sustenance!!!
