Billy Dean — Swinging For The Fence lyrics

Home game
Little league
Bottom of the 9th
It was up to me
The bunt sign
A man on 3rd
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 homerun cut
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging 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

Then I gave her a kiss on her front porch swing
Then she thought it was funny
When I said, 'Someday I'm gonna buy you a ring'
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/billy-dean-swinging-for-the-fence-lyrics.html ]
Big deal
So what
If it takes everything I got
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the fence

Home game
Minor league
She up in the stands
Still pulling for me
The bunt sign
A man on 3rd
I'm looking for that inside curve
But he came hard with his fast ball
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 swinging for the..

Big deal
So what
I had to take that homerun cut
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the fence

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