Track Name: If He Hits One Here
For eight years we had the worst team in the division
We couldn't pitch or hit, we couldn't field a ground ball
We've been waiting, anticipating a long time
Now it's happened, Ricky's batting with the whole season on the line

And if he hits one here
Then we'll be playing in the Fall this year
He'll cross the plate and watch the fans all cheer
We're gonna finish on top

We used to get pushed around by the Braves and the Cardinals
They'd come into our town and make our field their own
We've been waiting, anticipating a long time
Now it's happened, Ricky's batting with the whole season on the line

And if he hits one here
Then we'll be playing in the Fall this year
He'll cross the plate and watch the fans all cheer
We're gonna finish on top

And if the stars align
We'll show the fans that it's our time
We'll party like the Mets of '69
And we ain't ever gonna stop
Track Name: It's Rizzo
I know the guy who can take us all the way, it's Rizzo
Hit it to the right side, he's gonna make a play, it's Rizzo
He'll dive into the stands, you know he doesn't care
15th row, it doesn't matter, he can catch it anywhere
It's Rizzo, yeah

He'll lean over the plate, you can try to pitch inside, it's Rizzo
But make a mistake, and he'll take it for a ride, it's Rizzo
He leads the league in hit by pitches, he's never scared
He tried to fight the whole Reds roster, so throw it at him if you dare
It's Rizzo, yeah

He hits the ball from Wrigley all the way to Lincoln Square
The best first baseman in the league, nobody can compare
It's Rizzo, yeah
Track Name: Hey Coach, Put Robbie In
Hey Coach, put Robbie in
I don't think you realize
He's been practicing
His grounders and his flies
And it's not like Kenny's better
I know his dad's your friend
But if you wanna win
You better put Robbie in

Hey Coach, put Robbie in
This isn't little league
He's worked hard all year
Just to make varsity
I know you've never won against East Central
They're in the state's Top Ten
And you'll lose again
Unless you put Robbie in
If you wanna win
You better put Robbie in
Why won't you put Robbie in?
Track Name: Gary's Gonna Hit Into a Double Play
We're in the bottom of the 7th inning
The game is tied at three apiece
If we could a hit, we would be winning
The victory is well in reach

But with one out and two men on base
As Gary steps up to the plate
This inning will be ending soon

No matter what we do, no matter what we say
Gary's gonna hit into a double play
He'll get a take sign, and he still will swing away
Gary's gonna hit into a double play

Remember that one time up in Milwaukee?
We really thought we'd get a win
Joe got a hit, and then Ramirez walked me
But it was Gary's turn again

He hit a ground ball soft and slow
The shortstop made an easy throw
They turned two, and Gary never left the plate

If he would sacrifice, well Hell might freeze that day
Cause Gary's gonna hit into a double play
If there's a man on base and less than two away
Gary's gonna hit into a double play
