Two men on, two men down
Not a friendly face in this baseball town
I gotta make this fool swing, gotta cut him down
Or it's back to the farm
I might as well throw away my arm this time

And it's one strike, caught him lookin'
And it's two strikes, oh now I'm cookin'
Here's my hard one
As he swings I see his eyes
Another boy with diamond dreams like mine

Mama pleaded, "Son, stay in school
'Cause you don't wanna grow up to be no big league fool
And all they want is your body boy, they don't care about you"
Well I'm hoping that she's wrong
'Cause I'm feeling so strong this time

And it's one strike, caught him lookin'
And it's two strikes, oh now I'm cookin'
Here's my hard one
As he swings I see his eyes
Another boy with diamond dreams like mine

Oh when the crowd's on it's feet
How I live for this moment
The bitter and the sweet

Caught him lookin'
Oh now I'm cookin'
Here's my hard one
As he swings I see his eyes
Another boy with diamond dreams like mine

Caught him lookin'
Oh now I'm cookin'
Ooh Mama, I got these diamond dreams
I got these diamond dreams...
