Track Name: The Little Love Ditty
There must have been some kind of magic in the air
When you said you would be my love, darling
You'd be my sweet baby
You'd be my sugar plum for life

You know I thought I'd make my living playing this guitar
Still I drink all night here in this shitty bar
And you sing along like I'm a superstar
If I'm the apple of your eye then I could die

Then I could

If the stars had not aligned where would I be
Would I be in your life maybe
But in this life I don't think
That I would be the same tonight

There must be some mistake your beauty wasn't meant for me
But I'll take it anyway
Until forever and a day we'll make it our own way
Until the good Lord has his say and takes me home

Until he takes me
Track Name: The Baseball Game
Well my Granddad was a hell of a man
And he had more kids than he had planned
And all his children did just about the same

So in the Summertime when the air was fine
He'd gather us up and put us all in line
And tell us about Dimaggio, Cal, and the Babe

And then he started to talk about Doubleday
And how the rules they made are still the same today
And then he put four bases in the grass
And pointing to each and every one
He said it's not a game if it ain't fun
So remember if the fun is gonna last

You gotta get on base Chase
And if you can try to steal Bill
Look out now the ball is on its way
You gotta load 'em up Chuck
And try to hit a home run son
That is how you play the Baseball game.

Now there's two sides to every tale
And just because you think you're doing well
You have to let the other side take a swing
So grab your glove and take the field
And pray you brought your nerves of steel
'Cause somewhere in the outfield someone sings

"Come on throw 'em a strike Mike!"
You gotta give 'em the heat Pete
Set 'em down in order 1, 2, 3.
And if you don't you make a tag Chad
Or try to turn a double play Jay
Hear the crowd go wild wait and see!

I can't tell you how short them Summers seemed
Playing right field on the family team
Dreaming away and watching them flowers grow
And every now and then a ball would come my way
About half the time I would make the play
And the other half well you know how it goes...

But all the same...

You gotta get on base Chase
And if you can try to steal Bill
Look out now the ball will be on its way
You gotta load 'em up Chuck
And try to hit a grand slam Sam
Yeah, that is how you play the Baseball game

You gotta give 'em the heat Pete
And strike out the side Sly
No matter how you get 'em out it's all the same
Look for your ball Paul
It takes one swing of the bat Matt
To get you in the family hall of fame
And that is how you play the Baseball game
