Information about the song

Just about a year ago, they called me up from the farm,
They brought me in from the bullpen, to pitch to a guy named Bonds.
I put one in his wheelhouse, I guess you will know the tune.
Oh! Lord, Hit into McCovey Cove again.

Pitched against the Giants in April, and I struck out Marv Benard
Tried to get one past Aurilia, but he just hit it hard.
Then I had to face old Barry, and you know what happened then.
Oh! Lord, Hit into McCovey Cove again.

(Instrumental interlude)

The man from ESPN said I was on my way.
We went in to San Francisco, I had to pitch that day.
He hit me once, he hit me twice, three times before the game was through
Oh! Lord, Hit into McCovey Cove again.

(Instrumental interlude)

If I only had a dollar, for every screaming drunk.
Who made their catcalls from the stands and told me that I stunk.
You know, I'd retire to Bali, and Id never have to hear.
Oh! Lord, Hit into McCovey Cove again.
Oh! Lord, Hit into McCovey Cove again.
