I’ll never puke at home, yessirree,
While watching Fukudome play baseball on TV.
His hitting is sensational, a real superstar in his prime.
It’s just that…well, he plays for the Cubs,
America’s loveable losers, the Major League’s true blue flubs.
And well, I doubt he was brought in just for his ability to hit, no management needs to sell tickets and you can’t sell tickets to a game, if the team plays so lame, so you need to ornamentate the actuality with a little gold lame’.
Just to bring the suckers in…
Yeah, there’s one born every minute.
