My Name is Mike
Well I’m sat outside the clubhouse
Cause my band mates locked me out
They said I’m not really a part of it
Because I can’t pitch three straight outs

I’m just here due to a contract
They say I can’t write a song
Well since when is playing blaseball
Not a place we all belong?

My name is Mike.... Townsend
And I can play music
I can play music

My name is Mike.... Townsend
And I play music
And I can throw a ball

It’s a sad state of affairs when
A name on a dotted line
Is the only thing preventing me
Taking back some time

Some times I wish I were a Jazz Hand
Or I stared into the sun
Maybe then the fans would love me
Maybe then I’d have some fun

Till then I’m Mike... Townsend
And I play music
Yea I play music

Yea I’m Mike Townsend
And I play music
And I can throw a ball, blaseball

All the fans seem to want for me
Is to grow ten thousand thumbs
They never asked for my opinion
What if I want blaseball guns?

Maybe if I grew a third arm
I could steal the fandom’s heart
Till then I’ll keep showing up
Til the umps put my soul in park

In park
