( Baseball bat killing, satirical song lyrics )
GOING BATTY
( OVER THIS )
Copyright 2005 - MickTerry.com

Just 'cause some thirteen-year-old
put a bat through some kid's brain
for challenging his manhood
'bout losing a baseball game,
doesn't give them any right
to be taking our bats away.
We're GOING to BAT OVER THIS.

They're trying to tell us we can't
have a bat in ev'ry home,
protection against break-ins,
for loved ones or when alone,
telling us that bats are bad,
"as statistics have clearly shown".
We're GOING to BAT OVER THIS.

    We've got bats on the diamonds.
    We've got bats on the fields.
    They've got bats in the belfry
    if they think we're going to yield.
    They've got balls to be thinking
    that we'll ever give them up.
    GOING BATTY OVER THIS all the way home.

        Just watch:
        The first thing they'll do,
        as they chisel away at our rights,
        will be to take away aluminum from
        all the pro ball stadium nights.
        Just watch:
        The next thing they'll do
        will be regist'ring ev'ry bat.
        And then it's on and on
        'til they all are gone.
        Tell me, what're we going to do about that?

We'll arm the populace now
with a bat in ev'ry hand.
The NRA is helping
by lobbying for our stand.
We can't let encroachment of
all our rights get the upper hand.
We're GOING to BAT OVER THIS.

    CHORUS

[spoken] Hey, what's more American than baseball?
         Well, besides that ... & that ...
         yeah, & maybe that ...
         What's that? ...
         They don't allow aluminum bats at pro games?
         See ... I told you this was going to happen.

4-14-05:
13-year-old Palmdale, CA, Pony League pitcher,
having lost his first game after a long winning streak,
struck opposing 15-year-old pitcher in knee & head
with aluminum bat, killing him.
