The National Pastime Lyrics
by SMASH Cast
Fellas! (Is it?)
Hey, team! (Off the benches, its Marilyn!)
I just got a date (She just got a date!)
With baseballs Joltin Joe! (That lucky so-and-so!)
So run me round the bases,
Put me through my paces,
And teach me all the things a sluggers lover
Whats that there? (Thats the pitchers mound!)
Have you ever seen a shape that is so perfectly round?
(Batter up!) Play ball!
(You better give it your all!)
Cause all men like to play at
The national pastime.
Whos that man? (Thats the first base coach!)
Have you noticed that he signals every time I approach?
(Kill the ump!) Throw him out!
(Because there isnt a doubt..)
That all men like to play at
The national pastime!
When I was just a little girl,
I liked being dainty and purty.
But now that Im giving sports a whirl,
I find I kinda like to get dirty!
Baby, whats that there?
(Thats the team bullpen)
And I like the odds Im seeing: no girls, all men!
(Hit the deck, look alive! Beware the lady's line drive!)
Because my skill and my passionll
Elevate the national...
Hot Dogs! Crackerjack!
I dont care, I dont care if I ever get back!
(When the seasons over, the play wont end...)
Cause a baseball diamond is a girls best friend!
Yes, my style and my fashionll
Elevate the national
