Information about the song

For a different perspective on Mr. Sosa, please check out Tom Scanlon's Sammy Sosa (I'm in Love with Baseball Now), written long before the cork controversy.

He's corkin', yes indeed
And I'm talkin bout lots of greed
He's soundin' like a hypocrite to me, uh uh

He's sayin' it's a mistake
He's backed up by Dusty Bake
I'm thinkin' that it's a fake, you see.

What could Sammy say when the bat got split
And the man in blue made him go and sit
Told us quite a story and he wouldn't quit
Sammy, Sammy, Sammy, you're just full of it.

He's corkin', yes indeed
And I'm talkin bout lots of greed
He's soundin' like a hypocrite to me

(Long instrumental interlude of about 30 seconds featuring saxophone)

He's corkin', yes indeed
And I'm talkin bout lots of greed
He's soundin' like a hypocrite to me, uh uh

He's sayin' it's a mistake
He's backed up by Dusty Bake
I'm thinkin' that it's a fake, you see.

What could Sammy say when the bat got split
That he took the wrong one when he went to hit
Don't think I believe even a little bit
Sammy, quit your whining, put a cork in it.

He's corkin', yes indeed
And I'm talkin bout lots of greed
He's soundin' like a hypocrite to me, uh uh

(Saxophone fadeout)

June 5, 2003: On June 3, 2003, Sammy Sosa's bat shattered when he hit the ball. Unfortunately for Sammy, the umpire found cork in the fragments of the bat. Was it a batting practice bat that Sammy used inadvertently? I doubt it. Sammy's image has been seriously tarnished, and he'll havbe to live with that.
