Stretch Time!

July 10, 2011

You might be interested to know that, like many popular anthems, "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" has a number of verses that are seldom sung by the public. These charming lyrics are a reflection of a simpler time. Next time you're at the ballpark, why not try them out?

TAKE ME OUT THE BALLGAME, verses two through five


Conquer now the opponent
Vanquish all who defy
Bathe in the blood of the infidels
Bring to them the true meaning of hell
Fight, fight, fight to the last man
To he who runs horrid shame
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game!


Hear the drums of god's army
Thund'ring righteous and true
Judgement awaits at the final hour
Tendons rip under His awesome power
Fie, fie, fie nonbelievers
Prepare to perish in flames
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game!


Hear, sons of the away team
Listen now to the pleas
Your whimpering fathers disgrace your name
Know their weakness and greed are to blame
We shall crush, crush crush all their windpipes
Their gurgling deaths bring us fame
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game!


All the realm is now ashes
Purified from all sin
Bat-wielding angels have worked God's will
Burning fastballs rain down from the hill
Kill, kill kill valiant home team
Spare not the sick or the the lame
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out at the old ball game!
