The Reason – Boyz In Blue lyrics

Watching the final game on tv
Here comes the pich from Mr. Tom Henke
The pennant is won, it's 1989
And there's a new goal that's burning in my mind.
Got a new glove for my birthday that year
Combine with a bat and now ya have no fear
I practiced real good, and ya I practiced real hard
I made a diamond in my backyard.

Playin' some baseball in 1989
And I say wow
It is just baseball, ya I think that I'll do just fine
But I need help.

I put on my glove and went to second base
That runner was stealing, umpire called him safe
So I went to the outfield for the rest of that game
But we were the champs, we put the others to shame.

George Bell is gone and so is Lloyd Moseby
The infield is dominated by Manny Lee
Tony Fernandez, Kelly Gruber, Mcgriff
Dave Stieb's on the mound, ya man he's got the gift.

Playin' the outfield in 1991
And I say wow
If Mookie Wilson were here ya I think that it might be fun
But I need help.
Kelly Gruber got a triple play
Here comes Joe Carter now to save the day
Roberto Alomar was number one
And I got some tips from Mr. Juan Guzman
Patty Hentgen taught me to stay loose
Jonny Olerud has got the juice
Devon White, Pat Borders each have two rings
Two years in a row they were the baseball kings.

They won the World Series in 1992, 93
And I say wow
How could all of this nonsense have such a great effect on me?
And I say wow
Collective Bargaining in 1994
This really sucks
I've had it with baseball
I refuse to touch my glove anymore...

Please forgive me
Cito Gaston
Cito Gaston
Please forgive me
I need help.
