The Lyrics

When you spend a lot of time watching baseball, and a lot of time watching two-year-olds and hearing children's songs, this is what results.
I know a Met fielder who bobbled a fly.
I don't know why he bobbled the fly.
The Met fans cry.

I know a Met pitcher who hang-threw a slider.
Their ballpark, it couldn't have stayed long inside 'er.
He hang-threw the slider after the fly.
I don't know why they bobbled the fly.
The Met fans cry.

I know a Met batter who whiffed on a curve.
Oh, but what nerve, to whiff on a curve!
If the Met pitcher curved, instead of the slider:
The ballpark, it might've stayed longer inside 'er.
He hang-threw the slider after the fly.
I don't know why they bobbled the fly.
The Met fans cry.

I know a Met batter who broke his new bat.
Imagine that, he broke his new bat.
He broke his new bat, then he whiffed on a curve.
If the Met pitcher curved, instead of the slider:
The ballpark, it might've stayed longer inside 'er.
He hang-threw the slider after the fly.
I don't know why they bobbled the fly.
The Met fans cry.

I know a Met batter who popped up a bunt.
Oh, what a runt, he popped up a bunt.
He popped up a bunt after breaking his bat.
He broke his new bat then he wiffed on a curve.
If the Met pitcher curved, instead of the slider:
The ballpark, it might've stayed longer inside 'er.
He hang-threw the slider after the fly.
I don't know why they bobbled the fly.
The Met fans cry.

I know a Met runner who got picked off first.
Is this the worst? He got picked off first.
He got picked off first after the bunt.
He popped up a bunt after breaking his bat.
He broke his new bat then he wiffed on a curve.
If the Met pitcher curved, instead of the slider:
The ballpark, it might've stayed longer inside 'er.
He hang-threw the slider after the fly.
I don't know why they bobbled the fly.
The Met fans cry.

I know a Met manager, swallowed his gum.
His players so dumb, made him swallow his gum.
He swallowed his gum at the pickoff on first.
He got picked off first after the bunt.
He popped up a bunt after breaking his bat.
He broke his new bat then he wiffed on a curve.
If the Met pitcher curved, instead of the slider:
The ballpark, it might've stayed longer inside 'er.
He hang-threw the slider after the fly.
I don't know why they bobbled the fly.
The Met fans cry.

I know a Met GM who signed up a horse.
Better than the bums they got now?
Of course!
So why am I still picking on the Mets when the Yankees will be starting the World Series mere hours from now? Because this is Amiright, and the Mets are FUNNY!
