Right here, I stood right here
But most of the time, I sat right there
If we were ahead by 50 sometimes the coach would remember to empty the bench

You had to keep a lookout for splinters
It wasn't easy to play the postion I played
And I made up my mind that somehow some day I would be able to make my dad proud

Hey batter batter, is something the matter, huh?
Pee Wee Baseball kiss
Hey batter batter, is something the matter, huh?
Pee Wee Baseball, kiss my asterisk at the bottom of the song...

Even if I stood on tiptoes
I couldn't see the lineup chart
The coach always held it just high enough that my heart would start racing to wait and find out

If today was the day he'd decided
To trot out his big secret weapon
But I ended up off the page and still dreaming of using my own secret weapon...


Dairy Queen at the end of the game
Was something I did quite well
But no strawberries to show all the girls and my cleats had no dirt at all

At night I hung out in my bedroom
Listening to Cheap Trick
And I spun and I spun and I spun and I spun... and thought about getting a hit


Hey batter batter...
Hey batter batter it won't be long before the asterisk at the bottom of the song
Here comes the windup...and here comes the pitch
Don't take your eye off... here's the asterisk:

* Lily-white butt, pink backside, right down where the sun don't shine.
