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

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


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]
