It's A Grand Old Game

Title

It's A Grand Old Game

Description

V1
You may talk about the weather if it’s going to rain or shine
Figure on the market and you’re apt to get in line
You may figure on the horses and perhaps you’ll dope them out
But to figure on a ball game is to always be in doubt
V2
You may talk about old hockey in the good old winter time
Figure on a big fight and maybe you win some time
You may place a bet on football and perhaps your side wins out
But to figure on this Big League game is to always be in doubt
Chorus
It’s a grand old game, it’s a wonderful game
Delighted excited
The fans are all the same
The players come from all the states from Frisco up to Maine
The fans go near insane when you mention Babe Ruth’s name
It’s a grand old game, it’s a wonderful game
Let’s all cheer the players out there each day
Mickey, Chochrane and Rommel
See those fans stand up and yell
It’s a grand old game
C2
It’s a grand old game, it’s a wonderful game
Hack Wilson, the great Babe, are in the Hall of Fame
You’ll see the ball parks crowded any day it doesn’t rain
Just listen to them shout if the great Babe should strike out
It’s a grand old game, it’s a wonderful game
Let’s all cheer the Rabbit out there each day
Lindstrom, Terry and Mel Ott
Are some stars the Giants got;
It’s a grand old game
