Full Lyrics 'Meet the Mets'

Meet the Mets, meet the Mets, Step right up and greet the Mets. Bring your kiddies, bring your wife, Guaranteed to have the time of your life. Because the Mets are really sockin' the ball, Knockin' those home runs over the wall. East side, West side, everybody's coming down, To meet the M-E-T-S Mets, of New York town. Oh, the butcher and the baker and the people on the streets, Where did they go? To MEET THE METS! Oh, they're hollerin' and cheerin' and they're jumpin' in their seats, Where did they go? To MEET THE METS! All the fans are true to the orange and blue, So hurry up and come on down - 'cause we've got ourselves a ball club, The Mets of New York town! Give 'em a yell! Give 'em a hand! And let 'em know you're rootin' in the stands! Come on and... Meet the Mets, meet the Mets, Step right up and greet the Mets. Bring your kiddies, bring your wife, Guaranteed to have the time of your life. Because the Mets are really sockin' the ball, Knockin' those home runs over the wall. East side, West side, everybody's coming down, To meet the M-E-T-S Mets, Of New York town, Of New York town!
