Writer(s): joe raposoAnd there used to be a ballparkWhere the field was warm and greenAnd the people played their crazy gameWith a joy I’d never seen.And the air was such a wonderFrom the hot dogs and the beerYes, there used a ballpark, right here.And there used to be rock candyAnd a great big fourth of julyWith fireworks explodingAll across the summer skyAnd the people watched in wonderHow they’d laugh and how they’d cheerAnd there used to be a ballpark, right here.Now the children try to find itAnd they can’t believe their eyes`cause the old team just isn’t playingAnd the new team hardly triesAnd the sky has got so cloudyWhen it used to be so clearAnd the summer went so quickly this year.Yes, there used to be a ballpark, right here.
