ODE TO THE O'S

Can't count these days on nothin at all
'Cept in Baltimore, if you believe in baseball
Sure things can shatter or just fly away
But the Orioles come back like it was only yesterday
Well you could look it up--in this life one truth is sound
Always look out for the O's when each Fall comes around

In these days when you can't count on last Fall's clothes
When the rays of the sun dim and fickle wind blows
In these days when a rose ain't a rose ain't a rose
Never count out the O's for October

Cardinals and Blue Jays'll fly south in the Fall
Yankees go with 'em and the Giants get small
The Braves run away and the Rangers need guns
Expos are no shows and the Padres are nones
The Dodgers get drafted and the Brewers get plowed
The Nats have small bats and the Tigers meow

The As need Zs, the Phillies wheeze, the Sox should wear shoes
Royals get flushed and the Reds get the blues
The Mariners Marlins and Rays take a dive
The Astros still play like the Colt 45's
The Rockies play high, the Pirates like Tinkerbelles
The Twins are babies, Mets are pets, the Angelsí game is going to

Hey but these days when you can't count on last Fall's clothes
When the rays of the sun dim and fickle wind blows
In these days when a rose ain't a rose ain't a rose
Never count out the O's for October

O Robinsons Frank or Brooks, Roberts, Mooses or Moes
Ripkens Hansens Belangers or Aparicios
Flanagans McGregors McNallys or Cuellars, Wilhelms Gentiles Triandos
Never count out the O's for October

Fishers Barbers Millers Weavers Boddickers Palmers Portocarreros
Dempseys Estradas Stones Machados Johnsons Jones or Steferos
Eddies Freddies Singies Tippies Boogs or Bees Sugar Bears Turkeys Bucks Rhinos or Crows
Never count out the O's for Octo-

Olsons Kells or Altobellis Orsulaks Milackis Blairs Adairs Chitos Titos
JJs BJs Bauers Dauers Richards Woodlings Bradys Devereux
Moras Markasis Martinezes Mays Davis Wieters Elrods Brother Lo's
Never count out the O's for October

Aw in these days when you can't count on last Fall's clothes
When the rays of the sun dim and fickle wind blows
In these days when a rose ain't a rose ain't a rose
Never count ut the O's for October
Oh never count out the O's for October
O's never count out the O's for October
Always look out for the O's by October
O's O's never count out the O's for October
