Sight for sore eyes it's a long time no see
Workin' hard hardly workin' hey man you know me
Water under the bridge, did you see my new car?
Well it's bought and it's payed for parked outside of the bar

And hey barkeeper what's keepin' you keep pourin' drinks
For all these palookas', "Hey you know what I thinks
That we toast to the old days and Dimagio too"
And old drys Dale and Mantle Whitey Ford and to you

No the old gang ain't around everyone has left town
'Cept for thumm and giardina said they just might be down
Oh half drunk all the time and I'm all drunk the rest
Yeah, Monk's till the champion but I'm the best

And hey barkeeper what's keepin' you keep pourin' drinks
For all these palookas', "Hey you know what I thinks
That we toast to the old days and Dimagio too"
And drys Dale and Mantle Whitey Ford and to you

Guess you heard about Nash he was killed in a crash
Oh that must of been two or three years ago now
Yeah, he spun out and he rolled, he hit a telephone pole
And died with the radio on

No, she's married and with a kid finally split up with Sid
He's up north for a nickle's worth for armed robbery
And I'll play you some pin ball, no you ain't got a chance
Well then go on over and ask her to dance

And hey barkeeper what's keepin' you keep pourin' drinks
For all these palookas', "Hey you know what I thinks
That we toast to the old days and Dimagio too"
Drys Dale and Mantle Whitey Ford and to you
