Lyrics

Crowd:
Hey, oh, play ball!
Chad:
Hey, hey, oh!
Crowd:
Hey batter batter, hey batter batter, swing
Chad:
I’ve got to just do my thing
Crowd:
Hey batter batter, hey batter batter swing
Chad:
Yeah

Ryan:
I’ll show you that it’s one and the same
Baseball, dancing, same game
It’s easy
Step up to the plate
Start swingin’

Chad:
I wanna play ball
Now that’s all, this is what I do
It ain’t no dance that you can show me
Yeah

Ryan: You never know
Chad: Oh I know
Ryan: You never try
Chad:
But there’s just one little thing
That stops me every time
Yeah

Ryan: Come on!
Chad: I don’t dance
Ryan: I know you can
Chad: Not a chance, no
Ryan: If I could do this, well you could do that
Chad: But I don’t dance

Ryan: Hit it out of the park
Chad: I don’t dance
Ryan: I say you can
Chad: There’s not a chance, oh
Ryan: Slide home, you score, swingin’ on the dance floor
Chad: I don’t dance, no

Crowd:
Hey batter batter, hey batter batter swing
Chad:
I’ve got to just do my thing
Crowd:
Hey batter batter, hey batter batter swing
Chad:
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Ryan:
Two-steppin’ now you’re up to bat
Bases loaded, do your dance
It’s easy, take your best shot
Just hit it

Chad:
I’ve got what it takes playin’ my game
So you best skin that pitch you gonna throw me, yeah
I’ll show you how I swing

Ryan: You never know
Chad: Oh I know
Ryan: You never try

But there’s just one little thing
That stops me every time

Ryan:
Put it back, tuck it in, take a chance
Swing it out, spin around, do your dance
Chad:
I wanna play ball, not dance hall
I’m making a triple, not a curtain call
Ryan:
I can prove it to you ‘til you know it’s true
‘Cause I can swing it, I can bring it to the diamond too
Chad:
You’re talking a lot, show me what you got
Stop, swing
Ryan: Hey swing it like this
Oh sing jitterbug just like that

That’s what I mean
That’s how you swing
Chad:
You make a good pitch
But I don't believe

Ryan: I say you can
Chad: I know I can’t
I don’t (Ryan & Chad: dance!)

Ryan: You can do it
Chad: I don’t dance, no
Ryan: Nothing to it
Atta boy, atta boy, yeah
Chad: Hey batter batter, hey batter batter, what?
Ryan: One, two, three, four, everybody swing

Come on
Chad: I don’t dance
Ryan: I know you can
Chad: Not a chance, no no
Ryan: If I could do this, well you could do that
Chad: But I don’t dance

Ryan: Hit it out of the park
Chad: I don’t dance
Ryan: I say you can
Chad: There’s not a chance, no no
Ryan: If I could do this, well you could do that
