Information about the song

(Instrumental introduction)

He threw at my head on a steamy night
Another time I ducked a bat in flight
Now the times are changing, and it's him I'll catch
But who's gonna have the last laugh when the pitch gets whacked

(Instrumental interlude)

Picked as starters in the All-Star Game
Someday we'll be in the Hall of Fame
I don't think he'll have any sense
That I helped the balls clear the outfield fence
Oh-oh-oh

Oh the pitch, oh the pitch
Oh the pitch got whacked
I tipped Manny as a matter of fact
See the pitch, see the pitch
Watch it over the wall
Cause I told them all
Just where is the ball
Woh-oh-oh

(Instrumental interlude)

The inning's over, they scored six runs
And Roger Clemens' night is done
And now I feel that I paid him back
When nasty Mr. Clemens got his pitches whacked

Oh the pitch, oh the pitch
Oh the pitch got whacked
I tipped Manny as a matter of fact
See the pitch, see the pitch
Watch it over the wall
Cause I told them all
Just where is the ball
Woh-oh-oh

(long instrumental interlude)

Oh the pitch, oh the pitch
Oh the pitch got whacked
I tipped Manny as a matter of fact
See the pitch, see the pitch
Watch it over the wall
Cause I told them all
Just where is the ball
Woh-oh-oh

(Instrumental interlude)

(Repeat and fade:)
Pitch, pitch, pitch gets whacked

July 15, 2004: The 2004 All-Star Game saw Roger Clemens and Mike Piazza paired as the starting battery for the National League. Their prior history is well documented. and suffice it to say that the relationship was antagonistic. Clemens was touched up for six runs in obe inning, including homers by Manny Ramirez and Alfonso Soriano. Did Piazza tip the pitches? We'll never know, but I had a little fun with a number by Elton John.
