Full Lyrics

Let’s go! Batter up! We’re tak-ing the af-ter-noon off! It’s a beau-ti-ful day for a ball game, for a ball game to-day The fans are out to get a ticket or two From Wal-la, Wash-ing-ton to Kal-a-ma-zoo It’s a beau-ti-ful day for a home run, But e-ven a tri-ple’s o-kay! We’re gon-na cheer and boo and raise a hul-la-ba-loo At the ball game to-day Bat-ter up! Strike one! Hey! The game has just be-gun, And the home team’s out to win! There he swings! Strike Two! At the pitch-er’s dip-sy doo Boy! That fast ball popped right in! This is it! Strike three! Fans are tearing up the chairs, but what the heck! Who cares? It’s a beau-ti-ful day for a ball game, for a ball game to-day If you and I are out of dol-lars and cents, Oh hon-ey, we can al-ways share a lit-tle hole in the fence. It’s a beau-ti-ful day for the la-dies, So throw all your dish-es a-way We’re gon-na cheer and boo and raise a hul-la-ba-loo At the ball game to-day At the ball game The won-der-ful ball game to-day WOW!”
