Information about the song

(Instrumental introduction)

You all want to see me play first base
You tell me that my catching's done in any case
And your talk about my throws just isn't fair
I'll just keep on playing with the catcher's mask I wear

And did you think this team could never win
Well the kids and me, we're coming back again
We're gonna play the game in a simple way
And if you see us play contenders, we'll blow them all away

Don't you know I'm still crouching like I always did
Feeling like a true survivor, mentoring the younger kids
I'm still crouching after all this time
And Joel Sherman's bitter columns are not worth a dime

I'm still crouching yeah yeah yeah
I'm still crouching yeah yeah yeah

Once our team could never hope to win
With Roberto and Mo Vaughn again
The trades and injuries sent them out of town
And guys like Phillips, Ty and Reyes make us better now

Don't you know I'm still crouching like I always did
Feeling like a true survivor, mentoring the younger kids
I'm still crouching after all this time
And Joel Sherman's bitter columns are not worth a dime

I'm still crouching yeah yeah yeah
I'm still crouching yeah yeah yeah

(Instrumental interlude)

Don't you know I'm still crouching like I always did
Feeling like a true survivor, mentoring the younger kids
I'm still crouching after all this time
And Joel Sherman's bitter columns are not worth a dime

(Repeat and fade)
I'm still crouching yeah yeah yeah

August 30, 2003: Mike Piazza returned to the Mets in mid-August after a long stint on the disabled list. After much speculation that he would be moved to first base, he returned as a catcher and appeared not to have missed a beat. Elton John's song seems to sum it all up.
