Take Me Out To The Ballgame

and variations

click here for music

Take me out to the ballgame,
Take me out to the crowd.

Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks,
I don't care if I ever get back.

Cause it's root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.

For it's one, two, three strikes you're out,
at the old ballgame.

 

Take Me Out Of This Ballgame

Sung to the tune of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame"
Lyrics by The Animals

Take me out of this ballgame,
Take me out of here now.

Put someone in who can throw the ball,
My curve is flat and I can't get a call.

So it's hit, hit, hit for the home team,
My E.R.A. is a shame

For it's one, two, three runs are in,
and I pray for rain.

Note: The Animal's perennial #1 hit, sung here at Howser Stadium, Florida's McKethan Stadium-Perry Field, Omaha, and everywhere else we've belted it out. We sing this song when we deem a pitcher worthy, usually after he surrenders 3 or more runs (or multiples of 3).

The Beer Song

Sung to the tune of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame"
Lyrics by The Animals

Take me out to the beer bash,
Take me out to the beer.

Buy me some pretzels and beer from Jax,
I don't care if I'm flat on my back.

So it's drink, drink, drink for the An-i-mals,
If we run out it's a shame.

For it's one, two, three kegs are down,
and we feel no pain.

Note: The Animals' official party song...when we can remember the words. This can be followed by a rousing chorus or two of the Budweiser song.
