Take Me Out to the Ballgame Lyrics Take me out to the ball game Take me out to the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack I don't care if I ever get back, 'Cause it's root, root, root For the home team. If they don't win it's a shame. For it's one, two, three strikes You're out At the old ball game. Get ready to sing!!!!
Take Me Out of the Bathtub by Alan Katz Take me out of the bathtub Take me out of the suds I've been here soaking since half past two I feel so sudsy and wrinkle-y, too Oh, I washed all over my body My head, my toes, in between I used one, two, three bars of soap Take me out... I'm clean! Take me out of the bathtub I'm stuck here with my toys Dump trucks and squirters I think are great But I better take of my ro-o-ller skates 'Cause each time I get up I wobble I hold on, but it's a pain I tried once, twice, three times to stand Better get a crane!
