My Coach says to choke up more.
My parents yell out I'm fine.
Coach says use a 28 bat.
My parents shout 29!
Which one do I listen to?
What's a boy to do?
I'm only eleven years old and they're both forty-two!
Someone will get angry and I'm stuck in the middle. How do you think that I can solve this very difficult riddle?
I know! I know! I've got it!
Can this really work?
I hope that neither one of them will think that I'm a jerk!
Somehow I will get the Coach to tell my parents the facts. That there's only just one coach. Mom and Dad, will you please relax!
Just watch the game and laugh a lot.
Cheer, don't shout advice. Maybe you'll find that watching games can actually be nice!
He stands at the plate with his heart pounding fast, The bases are loaded; the die has been cast.
His parents can't help him; he stands all alone, A hit at this moment would send his team home. The ball nears the plate, he swings and he misses, There's a groan from the stands, with some loud boos and hisses.
A father's voice cries, "Strike out this bum!"
The batters eyes fill, (is this game fun?)
He's just a little boy, who stands all alone,
And at times like this he would rather be home.
So open your heart and give him a break, For its moments like this, an adult you can make. Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget. He's just a little boy and not a man yet!
