John Fogerty – Centerfield lyrics

Well, beat the drum and hold the phone - the sun came out today
We're born again, there's new grass on the field
Just roundin' 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 center field

Well, I spent some time in the Mudville Nine, watchin' it from the bench
You know I took my lumps when the Mighty Case struck out
So Say Hey Willie, tell Ty Cobb and Joe DiMaggio
Don't say it ain't so, you know the time is now

[Chorus]

Yeah! I got it, I got it

Got a beat-up glove, a homemade bat, and 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

[Chorus: x 2]
