Take Me Out to the Ballgame lyrics
Nellie Kelly loved baseball games,
Knew all the players, knew all their names;
Told the umpire he was wrong,
All along good and strong.
When the score was just two to two,
Nellie Kelly knew what to do,
Just to cheer on the boys she knew,
She made the gang sing this song:
"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don't care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, your out,
At the old ball game."
this is the San Francisco version. In some towns the girl was named Katie Casey. But don't you think Nellie Kelly is a better name?
