A Different Meaning to Same Old Tune

June 01, 1985

I propose some alternate lyrics to "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" for some of the "fans" at Dodger Stadium:

Thanks for the tickets to the ballgame,

I hope there's not a crowd,

Buy me a Kool-a-coo and Koala Bear

I'm not concerned with how the Dodgers fare

For it's root, root, root for whoever

To cheer for the winner's my aim

Cause I only come three times a year

To the Ol' Ball game

I'd suggest that these fans sing this during the seventh-inning stretch, but most of them are gone by then anyway.
