Well, I beat the drum and hold the phone, the sun came out today
We're born again, there's new grass on the field
Just a-roundin' third and headed for home, it's a brown-eyed handsome man
Anyone can understand the way I feel

Oh, put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play, today
Put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play, today
Look at me, I can be Center field

Well, I spent some time with the Mudville Nine, watchin' it from the bench
You know I took my lumps when the Mighty case struck out
So say "Hey Willie, tell Ty Cobb and Joe Di Maggio"
Don't say "It ain't so", you know the time is now

Oh, put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play, today
Put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play, today
Look at me, I gotta be Center field

Got a beat-up glove, a homemade bat, and brand-new pair of shoes
You know I think it's time to give this game a ride
Just to hit the ball and touch 'em all, a moment in the sun
It's gone and you can tell that one goodbye!

Oh, put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play, today
Put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play, today
Look at me, gotta be

Oh, put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play, today
Put me in, Coach, I'm ready to play, today
Look at me, I gotta be Center field
Yeah!
