Take Me Out to the Ball Game
(Jack Norworth and Harry Von Tilzer)
Katie Casey was baseball mad
Had the fever and had it bad.
Just to root for the home town crew,
Ev'ry sou, Katie blew;
On a Saturday, her young beau
Called to see if she'd like to go
To see a show, but Miss Kate said "No
I'll tell you what you can do:"
cho: Take me out to the ball game
Take me out with the crowd,
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack
I don't care if I never never get back.
Let me root, root root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame;
For it's one, two, three strikes you're out
At the old ball game.
Katie Casey saw all the games,
Knew the players by their first names;
Told the umpire he was wrong
All along, good and strong.
When the score was just two to two
Katie Casey knew what to do,
Just to cheer up the boys she knew
She made the gang sing this song:
