Lefty’s Boys

First she took one off the shin
Then she caught one on the chin
But none of us are laughin’
Cause we’re Lefty’s Boys

Lefty turned a double play
Runner leaned the other way
Makes us kinda proud to say
We’re Lefty’s Boys

It’s summertime, we’re out of school
And we pretend the stands are full
Win or lose, life is good
And anyway, it’s understood
We’re Lefty’s Boys
We’re Lefty’s Boys

Autumn found us in a mess
We saw Lefty in a dress
Just the first of many tests
For Lefty’s Boys

Older boys were coming ‘round
From the other side of town
Maybe she forgot about
Lefty’s Boys

It’s wintertime, we’re stuck in school
We’re trying hard to play it cool
We’re talkin’ tough like nothing’s changed
But we all know it’s not the same
For Lefty’s Boys

We can knuckle down like men
But we all know that in the end
We would take her back again

Come summertime, we’re out of school
And we pretend the stands are full
Win or lose, life is good
You could say it’s understood
We’re Lefty’s Boys
We’re Lefty’s Boys
