Everyone knows the chorus, but few many know that ‘OK Blue Jays’ has verses

Everyone knows the earworm chorus, but few know “OK Blue Jays” has several versus. Here are the lyrics:

 

You’ve got a diamond.

You’ve got nine men.

You’ve got a hat, and a bat, and that’s not all.

You got the bleachers, got ’em from spring ’til fall.

You got a dog, and a drink, and an umpire’s call.

What do you want?

Let’s play ball.

Is that a fly ball, or is it a seagull?

Coming in, from the lake, just to catch the game.

It’s the last inning, our guys are winning.

Dave’s put down a smoker, a strike and you got no doubt. You’re out.

What do you want?

Let’s play ball.

OK, OK  Blue Jays, Blue Jays!

Let’s, Let’s Play, Play Ball!

It’s a beautiful evening, fans.

At the ballpark, when the game starts.

Warm summer breezes, sun’s going down.

It’s all dark at the ballpark.

That’s OK, it’s a night game.

OK, OK  Blue Jays, Blue Jays!

Let’s, Let’s Play, Play Ball!

OK, OK  Blue Jays, Blue Jays!

Let’s, Let’s Play, Play Ball!

Bring on the White Sox.

Bring on the BoSox.

Bring on the Angels, the Rangers, and the Yankees too.

We’ll beat the Indians.

We’ll beat the Tigers.

We’ll beat the As so bad it’ll make Billy Blue.

What do you want?

Let’s play ball.

OK, OK  Blue Jays, Blue Jays!

Let’s, Let’s Play, Play Ball!

OK, OK  Blue Jays, Blue Jays!

Let’s, Let’s Play, Play Ball!
