Information about the song

You can swing every night with your bat, at a pitch that's fat, send it out of sight
But you know that there's only one man who can make it stand when the game is tight
So don't forget who's closing the door when the lead's no more than three
So teammates, save the save chance for me

Oh, I know when you're swinging fine, hitting on a line, go and have your fun
Take your swings, but in your last at bat, it seems you score too many runs
So don't forget who's closing the door when the lead's no more than three
So teammates, save the save chance for me

Stanton, Weathers and old John Franco
When they pitch, I blow my lunch
They can never ever let me close
They give up runs a bunch

You can hit singles and home runs while the night is young and the game is tight
But don't get way ahead, my friends, when I'm in the pen, just to pitch the ninth
Cause don't forget who's closing the door when the lead's no more than three
So teammates, save the save chance for me

(Instrumental interlude)

'Cause don't forget who's closing the door when the lead's no more than three
So teammates, save the save chance for me

(repeat and fade:)
Save the save chance for me

May 14, 2004: Mets' closer Braden Looper went three weeks without a save opportunity, before gaining saves in back to back games against the Diamondbacks. The reason for the lack of opportunity had less to do with the Mets poor play, but rather that there were several games in which the Mets scored too many runs in their last at bat to present Looper with the save opportunity, or that the team's setup men blew the lead, and consequently, the opportunity for Looper evaporated. The original song, by the Drifters, hit the top of the charts in 1960.
