I guess I should've given it more time I thought I could see the hit and run sign I should've seen a change up coming my way I thought that my future looked just fine I saw myself running down the baseline I guess that home's where I'll always stay Cause now I'm gonna strike out I'll just swing away I shouldn't even play Though a hit is overdue I know I'll be striking with you And I can't blame the ump I just can't break my slump Just another pitch or two I know I'll be striking with you Now the ump is sweeping up the tears I cried when you looked right into my eyes And told me that our love was a swing and a miss I swear that I could've seen you balk How could you intentionally walk Out on me at a time like this? Now I'm gonna strike out I couldn't even bunt This isn't what I want My plans gone askew I know I'll be striking with you I'm no good in a pinch I'll be back on the bench It breaks my heart in two I know I'll be striking with you When I start swinging it feels so good I'd hit homers if I just could But I don’t ever see anything in the zone When it comes to you So I'm gonna strike out I'll hang my head in shame I'll never when the game No matter what I do I know I'll be striking with you I'll let my teammates down I couldn't face them now My heart is 0-and-2 I know I'll be striking with you
2.
Hey Homer Bailey, you're getting paid a lot Your ERA is high, but your win total is not Mrs. Bailey's boy, standing on the mound Thinks he's Nolan Ryan, but he's really Charlie Brown We're gonna homer off of Homer Bailey now Remember last time you came to our city? You were in the shower by the end of inning three If I liked your team, I think I'd wanna cry And I could give you like 100 million reasons why
3.
Somebody put something in my Gatorade This is the worst game that I've ever played I can't even see the ball I just let that pop up fall Somebody put something in my Gatorade Somebody put something in my Gatorade I can feel my energy just start to fade I feel like I've been sniffing glue I don't know what I should do Somebody put something in my Gatorade Well my knees, they were shaking My curve, it wasn't breaking That's what made me think There was something in my drink Now I'm feeling funny Just like it's all a dream It must've been somebody from the other team
4.
We spent the season just making plans, wishing, and hoping About being in the show together, playing up in Boston or Oakland When the scouts came around, they'd always watch us play Davey would blow their minds, and I was just OK That's why Davey, Davey got drafted He'll be leaving town I wish we could stay on the same team somehow But he got drafted now I remember just last year, when I was struggling to get time on JV But this year I played varsity and batted second just ahead of Davey But he'll be leaving soon to go play rookie ball And I'll be staying here, working at the mall And I know one day I'll be leaving I'm taking classes in the evening I'm saving up so I can move somewhere Because I know there's something else for me out there The MLB took Davey from me...
5.
We're going down to Rio, and I tell you what we're gonna do We're gonna bring the gold home for the red, white, and blue I trained for years in North Dakota I've never had a soda But I'm gonna spend my summer at the Summer Olympics I've waited all my life just to get up on that podium I wanna see my gold medal shine in the Rio sun I never got to sleep late But my trial time was so great And I'm gonna spend my summer at the Summer Olympics When he jumps, we're gonna jump higher When she runs, we're gonna run past her When the race goes down to the wire We'll go faster At the Summer Olympics We'll see you when we get back And then I'll have my first Big Mac But I'm gonna spend my summer at the Summer Olympics

For eight years we had the worst team in the division We couldn't pitch or hit, we couldn't field a ground ball We've been waiting, anticipating a long time Now it's happened, Ricky's batting with the whole season on the line And if he hits one here Then we'll be playing in the Fall this year He'll cross the plate and watch the fans all cheer We're gonna finish on top We used to get pushed around by the Braves and the Cardinals They'd come into our town and make our field their own We've been waiting, anticipating a long time Now it's happened, Ricky's batting with the whole season on the line And if the stars align We'll show the fans that it's our time We'll party like the Mets of '69 And we ain't ever gonna stop
8.
It's Rizzo 01:58
I know the guy who can take us all the way, it's Rizzo Hit it to the right side, he's gonna make a play, it's Rizzo He'll dive into the stands, you know he doesn't care 15th row, it doesn't matter, he can catch it anywhere It's Rizzo, yeah He'll lean over the plate, you can try to pitch inside, it's Rizzo But make a mistake, and he'll take it for a ride, it's Rizzo He leads the league in hit by pitches, he's never scared He tried to fight the whole Reds roster, so throw it at him if you dare It's Rizzo, yeah He hits the ball from Wrigley all the way to Lincoln Square The best first baseman in the league, nobody can compare It's Rizzo, yeah
9.
Hey Coach, put Robbie in I don't think you realize He's been practicing His grounders and his flies And it's not like Kenny's better I know his dad's your friend But if you wanna win You better put Robbie in Hey Coach, put Robbie in This isn't little league He's worked hard all year Just to make varsity I know you've never won against East Central They're in the state's Top Ten And you'll lose again Unless you put Robbie in If you wanna win You better put Robbie in Why won't you put Robbie in?
10.
We're in the bottom of the 7th inning The game is tied at three apiece If we could a hit, we would be winning The victory is well in reach But with one out and two men on base As Gary steps up to the plate This inning will be ending soon No matter what we do, no matter what we say Gary's gonna hit into a double play He'll get a take sign, and he still will swing away Gary's gonna hit into a double play Remember that one time up in Milwaukee? We really thought we'd get a win Joe got a hit, and then Ramirez walked me But it was Gary's turn again He hit a ground ball soft and slow The shortstop made an easy throw They turned two, and Gary never left the plate If he would sacrifice, well Hell might freeze that day Cause Gary's gonna hit into a double play If there's a man on base and less than two away Gary's gonna hit into a double play
11.
When it was summer, we did just what we wanted We stayed up so late My nights and mornings were all mine When it was summertime When it was summer, we spent our days just driving Straight up the East Coast New England weather felt just fine When it was summertime When it was summer, we played records every day Sunflower, Friends, and Pet Sounds, Shut Down, Today We had no worries in our minds We had no cares cause it was summer, summertime

I've got records, but the best one's Revenge is Sweet, and So Are You, it is And though I'd like to ask him lots of questions I don't know where Dr. Frank Lives We could take a trip to California Knock on every door 'til we find his We might lucky, but I gotta warn ya I don't know where Dr. Frank Lives Yeah, I know he's out there We'll take BART and find him somewhere We'll check every stop and station We're big fans, he'd understand Maybe we'll start a band Called Conflagration Sensation We'll bring along our collection Of Schoolhouse Rock! and Love Connection We might watch some episodes together If we could find him, I bet we Would be approximately Best friends forever and ever We could search until the summer's over We'll follow any lead anyone gives But our days are numbered, and then like I told ya I don't know where Dr. Frank Lives
14.
My friend Wayne, he came to America last summer But now it all seems so far away He finds himself California dreaming Now that the weather's cold and gray He remembers taking the kids to Disney And going to the bay Watching his first baseball game When he saw the Dodgers play And he had 20 different hotel rooms throughout his stay And he ate muffins for breakfast every day
15.
Crystal Lake 01:51
I know sometimes it feels like life can get you down Let's pack our bags and hit the road, get out of town I found a little place where we can just escape I'm gonna take my girl to Crystal Lake Sometimes the city life makes you wanna run away We need some peace and quiet, we could leave today It would be all we imagined, it would be so great When I take my girl to Crystal Lake She said she wanted to go somewhere romantic Where we could be alone without a care I know she's been so stressed, depressed, and frantic I found a little place, I'm sure there's nobody there It feels like life is killing us, and we need a break I'm gonna take my girl to Crystal Lake
16.
You aren't looking so great I know you're staying up late You're barely sleeping every night You say dreaming makes you so scared Some guy named Freddy's in there But I wanna make you feel all right So if you need me, well I'll be there when you call Just tell me what you need, and I can do it all And I'll say don't worry baby I'll do anything I can do But I can't stay up night for you I can keep the coffee brewing I'll do anything else worth doing But I can't stay up night I know you're staying awake And I'd stay up too for your sake He's in your dreams and makes you cry But when it gets close to midnight My eyes start closing so tight I couldn't stay up if I tried So if there's anything else I can do to show That I'll be here for you, then please just let me know And I'll say don't worry baby I'll do anything I can do But I can't stay up night for you I can keep the records playing Record everything you're saying But I can't stay up night for you Don't worry baby I swear my heart is true But I can't stay up night for you I can keep the coffee brewing I'll do anything else worth doing But I can't stay up night for you
17.
Don't wanna scare you with the things I say But you know it's true There's lots of rules that you have to follow now Though it's your favorite day of the year I can't be with you You know I would if I could be there somehow But it's Halloween And you know what that means Though Sam might like to hide He'll be right by your side When you trick or treat No matter where you go You better follow the rules Or Sam's gonna get you When you trick or treat No matter what you do You better follow the rules Or Sam's gonna get you tonight But it's Halloween And you know what that means Be careful what you do Cause Sam is watching you
18.
I'd go out camping at Crystal Lake at midnight I'd walk down Elm Street without even a flashlight I won't back down from a challenge But there's one thing I'm telling you I'd never do I don't wanna go to Haddonfield Memorial I'd take a swamp boat right to Victor Crowley's front door Yeah I'd say "Candyman" four times, and then I'd say it once more I know I don't scare easy But there's one thing I'd never try Cause I don't wanna die
19.
Teddy 02:22
Teddy don't you know we never meant to kill your dad Teddy don't you know we really feel so bad Don't wanna die, I'm not ready Don't kill me Teddy I know Clay can be a jerk when he's drinking I should've stayed at home, don't know what I was thinking But I don't wanna be buried Don't kill me Teddy I'd like to live to see another day So put the stick away And don't kill me Teddy I just wanted to relax for the weekend Hang out with my sister and our two friends But now I'm running and I'm sweaty Don't kill me Teddy It's just revenge, we have to pay But put the shovel away And don't kill me Teddy I'd like to give you my side if I may So put the hatchet away And don't kill me Teddy
20.
Jamie Lee 01:51
Jamie Lee, you're always on my screen On every Halloween It's nothing new And Jamie Lee, I'd read you poetry And I would totally Always be true Jamie Lee, he's everywhere you go He always seems to know Everything you do But Jamie Lee, you're gonna stay alive Though your friends won't survive You'll make it through And I'd give anything to prove That I'm the one you're looking for I'm cooler than Ben Tramer And I write songs too So Jamie Lee, I'm coming all the way To Haddonfield to be the one who saves you
