Lyrics WHEN I PITCH,
CAN YOU CATCH?
WILL YOU HOLD THE BALL?
WHEN IT'S DEAD
TO THE PLATE,
WILL YOU SWING
AND FALL?
IF YOU PLAY
YOU GOTTA KNOW
HOW IT'S DONE.
CAN YOU CATCH,
CAN YOU HOLD
A HARD ONE.

I MEAN, BABY,
DO YOU KNOW THE GAME!
I MEAN, BABY,
DO YOU KNOW THE GAME?
I'M A BIG LEAGUE PITCHER.
CAN YOU CATCH
THE HURL I FLING?

CAN YOU HIT
THE BALL
I THROW TO YOU?
SOUTHPAW,
CAN YOU HIT
THE BALL
I THROW TO YOU?
WELL,
GET YOUR BAT READY,
BABY,
LET'S SEE
WHAT YOU CAN DO.

DO YOU KNOW, BABY,
WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT?
DO YOU KNOW, BABY,
WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT?
I NEED A PINCH-HITTER
BECAUSE MY LAST MAN
JUST FANNED OUT.

GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY,
GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY,
GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY,
GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY;
GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY,
LET'S HAVE SOME FUN,
IF YOU CAN HIT THAT BALL
YOU CAN MAKE A HOME RUN.

(PLAY BALL!)

I'VE GOT A DROP
THAT WILL MAKE YOU
SWING DOWN LOW.
I'VE GOT A DROP
THAT WILL MAKE YOU
SWING DOWN LOW.
IF YOU CAN'T PICK IT UP,
BABY,
THAT MEANS
YOUR STROKE
IS TOO SLOW.

WHEN I WIND UP,
I'M PITCHING MY ALL
TO YOU.
WHEN I WIND UP,
I'M PITCHING MY ALL
TO YOU.
SO GET YOUR BAT READY,
BABY,
LET'S SEE
WHAT YOU CAN DO.

GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY,
GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY,
GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY,
GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY;
GET YOUR BAT READY, BABY,
LET'S HAVE SOME FUN,
IF YOU CAN HIT THAT BALL
YOU CAN MAKE A HOME RUN.

(PLAY BALL!)
