Swinging For The Fence Lyrics

(Ray Barnette - Billy Dean)

Home game, little league
Bottom of the ninth: it was up to me
The bunt sign: a man on third
Tie the game, Coach? That's absurd.
I made my mind up at the plate
"If I see that fast ball,
Well, I just might have to swing away."

Big deal, so what?
I had to take that home run cut
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swingin' for the fence.

Home girl, major league
Everybody said she's too good for me
Prom night, she had a date
But I asked her to dance anyway
An' then I gave her a kiss on her front porch swing
An' she thought it was funny
When I said: "Someday I'm gonna buy you a ring."

Big deal, so what?
If it takes everything I got
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swingin' for the fence.

--- Instrumental ---

Home game, minor league
She up in the stands, still pulling for me
The bunt sign: a man on third
I'm looking for that inside curve
But he came hard with his fast ball
An' last time I saw, it was heading out
Over center-field wall, yeah.

Big deal, so what?
Now they want to pay me a million bucks
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swingin' for the.

Big deal, so what?
I had to take that home run cut
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swingin' for the fence.

Swinging for the fence
Swinging for the fence.
Cold Beer!
Hot dogs!...
