Songs
Take Me Out to the Ballgame
Take me out to the ballgame, take me out with the crowd, buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks, I don't care if I ever get back.
Let me root, root, root for the Astros, if they don't win it's a shame. For it's one, two, three strikes you're out a the old ball game!
Baseball Pokey
You put your bat in, you put your bat out, you put your bat in and you shake it all about. You do the basball pokey and you turn yourslef around. That's what it's all about.
Other verses: glove, cleats, cap, whole baseball self.
I'm a Little Ball Player
I'm a little ball player, I can run, here is my bat to have a little fun. When I hit a homerun everyone shouts, "Way to go, he knocked it out!"
