Lyrics
Home game, little league
Bottom of the 9th, it was up to me
The bunt sign, a man on 3rd
Tie the game, Coach? That's absurd

I made my mind up at the plate, if I see that fast ball
Well, I just might have to swing away

Big deal, so what
I had to take that home run cut
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the fence

Home girl, major league
Everybody said she's too good for me
Prom night, she had a date
But I asked her to dance anyway

Then I gave her a kiss on her front porch swing
Then she thought it was funny
When I said, "Someday I'm gonna buy you a ring"

Big deal, so what
If it takes everything I got
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the fence

Home game, minor league
She up in the stands still pulling for me
The bunt sign, a man on 3rd
I'm looking for that inside curve

But he came hard with his fast ball, last time I saw
It was heading out over center-field wall

Yeah, big deal, so what
Now they want to pay me a million bucks
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the

Big deal, so what
I had to take that home run cut
My life just don't make sense
If I ain't swinging for the fence

Swinging for the fence
Swinging for the fence
Cold beer, hot dogs
