Centerfield

Well, I beat the drum and hold the phone
The sun came out today
We′re born again, there's new grass on the field
A-roundin′ third, I'm headed for home
It's a brown-eyed handsome man
Anyone can understand the way I feel

Oh, put me in coach, I′m ready to play today
Put me in coach, I′m ready to play today
Look at me, I can be centerfield

Well, I spent some time in the Mudville Nine
Watching it from the bench
You know I took some lumps
When the Mighty Casey struck out
So say, "Hey Willie, tell Ty Cobb and Joe DiMaggio"
Don't say it ain′t so you know the time is now

So put me in coach, I'm ready to play today
Put me in coach, I′m ready to play today
Look at me, I can be centerfield

You got a beat up glove, a homemade bat
And a brand new pair of shoes
You know I think it's time to give this game a ride
Just to hit the ball an′ touch 'em all a moment in the sun
It's-a gone and you can tell that one goodbye

Oh, put me in coach, I′m ready to play today
Put me in coach, I′m ready to play today
Look at me, I can be centerfield

Oh, put me in coach, I'm ready to play today
Put me in coach, I′m ready to play today
Look at me, gotta be centerfield
Yeah
