Nashville Bats
The Nashville Bats
art by R. Stevie Moore, Fall 1973








HOME OF THE NASHVILLE BATS (Lovera/Moore)
I'm a helluva ball player
From Nashville Tenna
Heavy as it seems
There'll be legend in the working
When we cop the pennant of our dreams

We know it sounds like a nursery rhyme
But we keep hitting it all the time

There's a thousand news announcers
Waiting breathlessly
They sit at hand
And you can bet your Oreo that
Things stay hopping
When we take command

Why put your money on something else?
Come on, we'll show you there's nothing else

Triple play twice today
Now the Bats are up!

I feel grand
When you're in the stands
I'm in love
With my cap and glove
But you're a fan of your man

I can show you I care
But how innings can you bear?
I can show you I'm real
But how many bases must I steal?
