It's a Beautiful Day for a Ball Game

(The Harry Simeone Songsters)
Let’s go!
Batter up!

We’re tak-ing the af-ter-noon off!

It’s a beau-ti-ful day for a ball game, for a ball game to-day
The fans are out to get a ticket or two
From Wal-la, Wash-ing-ton to Kal-a-ma-zoo

It’s a beau-ti-ful day for a home run,
But e-ven a tri-ple’s o-kay!
We’re gon-na cheer and boo and raise a hul-la-ba-loo
At the ball game to-day

Bat-ter up!
Strike one!
Hey! The game has just be-gun,
And the home team’s out to win!
There he swings!
Strike Two!
At the pitch-er’s dip-sy doo
Boy! That fast ball popped right in!

This is it! Strike three!
Fans are tearing up the chairs, but what the heck! Who cares?

It’s a beau-ti-ful day for a ball game, for a ball game to-day
If you and I are out of dol-lars and cents,
Oh hon-ey, we can al-ways share a lit-tle hole in the fence.

It’s a beau-ti-ful day for the la-dies,
So throw all your dish-es a-way

We’re gon-na cheer and boo and raise a hul-la-ba-loo
At the ball game to-day
At the ball game
The won-der-ful ball game to-day
WOW!”
