Back To The Bleachers For Me
Now, Mamie McShane loved a good baseball game,
And each year she’d wait for them to start,

When they went…

Baseball, Baseball
I met a lad handsome and witty who whispered to me you are so pretty.
Soon he and I were cabaretting, we had a good time, goes without saying.
He came to my house all the lights were low.
And then he held me close, set my heart a glow.

Molly McNamara
Just a year a go I met her my Molly, my own,
And I never will forget her for she would grace a throne,
Altho’ she is kind as a girl can be,
Sometimes she seems quite in dif’rent to me,

So I sing to her…

I Want To Go To The Ball Game
Billy O’Grady and his little lady
Were sweethearts for many long moons;

A V-spot and take you somewhere”
She’d listen…

Manda At The Base Ball Game

You Better Play Ball With Me
Something tells me, compels me to tell you that you’re swell, and yet

He had a mild and modest air;
When the bell rang “play ball”
