I knew that this would not be easy
They said “do it” or else I’d be fired
Making my way, out onto the field
I had an interview with the umpire

He seemed like a really nice guy
As I slowly walked to home plate
When I got there, I started to sweat
But, figured, Hey! This should be great

I’ll get tight with the one who calls strikes
Surely, he’d never catch on to my plan
Perhaps, maybe not, I better play it safe
I’m just the manager, but he’s the man

Everything seemed to go smoothly
On my face, I was wearing a smile
The umpire looked at me strangely
In fact, it was more like a bit hostile

Making my way back to the dugout
I suddenly heard a loud shout
I turned around, but before I could yell
He said, “That’s it. I’ve had it! You’re OUT!”
