Lyrics

We’ll beat the drum
And hold the phone
The sun came out today
We’re born again
There’s new grass on the field

A round in’ third
And headed for home
It’s a brown-eyed handsome man
Anyone can understand
The way I feel

Chorus:
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
Watchin’ it from the bench
You know I took some lumps
When the mighty Case struck out
So say hey Willie
Tell the Cobb
And Joe DiMaggio
Don’t say it ain’t so
The time is now

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

Got a beat up glove
A homemade bat
A brand new pair of shoes
You know, I think it’s time
To give this game a ride

Just to hit the ball
And touch ‘em all
A moment in the sun
It’s 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
I can be
Centerfield
