C.w. MccallPine Tar Wars

Well, the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times Carried the story in BIG HEADLINES How Kansas City George was robbed that day When Tar Baby Billy took his bat away It was two men out in the top a' the ninth It was one a' them classic settin's The Goose on the mound in that Big Apple town And George is up there battin' As the crowd chants "Goose!" He turns it loose With fire and smoke and ash George sends it deep In the right field seats Another timely crash As he rounded third and he headed on home Was a gleam in Billy's eye Dick wondered "What's he up to now? "I know this guy's real sly." Billy grabbed the bat as both teams sat In awe upon the benches Says, "There ya are! That there's pine tar! "An' it's a whole lot more'n eighteen inches!" [Chorus] Tar Baby Billy can you hear our song? Did you cry about the game last night? Cry Baby Billy tell us all what's wrong? All you wanna do is fight You like a child, kickin' dirt on the umpire's shoes That's the way you've always been So now we're gonna take that pine tar rag And rub it in your face again So Tim thought it through, and he asked the crew Then with bat in hand, he shouted "You're out! The home run just don't count! "I'm gonna have ta disallow it!" Well, the sky was clear and the day was hot But George was even hotter 'Till Lee got wise, and said "Hey, you guys! "This claim ain't a-gonna hold water." [Chorus] Tar Baby Billy can you hear our song? Did you cry about the game last night? Cry Baby Billy tell us all what's wrong? All you wanna do is fight You like a child, kickin' dirt on the umpire's shoes That's the way you've always been So now we're gonna take that pine tar rag And rub it in your face again Well, the fans was riled and suits was filed To create a long dee-lay Then Billy's team, apparently, Was just afraid to play Now the stage was set and Billy bet That he had the upper hand But Billy was fooled when the big court ruled "You gonna play this game, as planned!" [Chorus] Well, Tar Baby Billy can you hear our song? Did you cry about the game last night? Cry Baby Billy tell us all what's wrong? All you wanna do is fight You like a child, kickin' dirt on the umpire's shoes That's the way you've always been So now we're gonna take that pine tar rag And rub it in your face again With affidavits (notarized) That George had touched 'em all The umpire said, "We a step ahead. "Gonna put an end to Billy Ball." "We done heard the call for Billy Ball "We ain't never gonna hear it again "Just like the cheer for Billy's Beer "When the Democrats was in." Now the game they played that summer day Won't be famous for the scores But the incidents that have happened since Will be remembered as TAR WARS [Chorus] Tar Baby Billy can you hear our song? Did you cry about the game last night? Cry Baby Billy tell us all what's wrong? All you wanna do is fight You like a child, kickin' dirt on the umpire's shoes That's the way you've always been So now we're gonna take that pine tar rag And rub it in your face again
