Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Verse 1]
Lazy stadium night
Catfish on the mound
“Strike three,” the umpire said
Batter have to go back and sit down

[Chorus]
Catfish, million-dollar-man
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can

[Verse 2]
Used to work on Mr. Finley’s farm
But the old man wouldn’t pay
So he packed his glove and took his arm
And one day he just ran away

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Come up where the Yankees are
Dress up in a pinstripe suit
Smoke a custom-made cigar
Wear an alligator boot

[Chorus]

[Verse 4]
Carolina born and bred
Love to hunt the little quail
Got a hundred-acre spread
Got some huntin’ dogs for sale

[Chorus]

[Verse 5]
Reggie Jackson at the plate
Seeing’ nothing’ but the curve
Swing too early or too late
Got to eat what Catfish serve

[Chorus]

[6Verse ]
Even Billy Martin grins
When the Fish is in the game
Every season twenty wins
Gonna make the Hall of Fame

[Chorus]
