Information about the song

Did you hit the slams, Fernando?
Were you standing in the batters box as it was getting dark?
In the waning light, Fernando
You had the bases juiced and hoped to give your team a spark
Did you think that you could jack one twice against young Chan Ho Park?

They were long enough Fernando
Every foot the baseball traveled seemed to last more than an hour
As they cleared the fence, Fernando
I am certain that the taste in Chan Ho's mouth was turning sour
And you sure amazed old Mark McGwire with your power

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were there for your eight RBIs
Your two big flies, Fernando
We saw the first one leave the yard, we can't forget
And then you went and did the same again
You did, my friend, Fernando
And then you went and did the same again
You did, my friend, Fernando

When you're old and gray, Fernando
And many years have passed since your bat was in your hand
Will you recall the slams, Fernando?
Will you still recall the fateful night in LALA Land?
And will you realize that those two slams were truly grand.

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were there for your eight RBIs
Your two big flies, Fernando
We saw the first one leave the yard, we can't forget
And then you went and did the same again
You did, my friend, Fernando

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were there for your eight RBIs
Your two big flies, Fernando
We saw the first one leave the yard, we can't forget
And then you went and did the same again
You did, my friend, Fernando

(Repeat last two lines and fade)

April 26, 1999: Fernando Tatis of the Cardinals became the first player in history to hit two grand slam homers in one inning. They both came off the Dodgers' Chan Ho Park. It was amazing that Park was around for the second one, but he was. So here is the ballad of a Dominican batter and a Korean pitcher, to a tune by a Swedish group.
