A baseball game is happening And Junior's first up to bat One of our favorite things to do Was play a game of three-eyed cat Rounding out the player roster Was the pitcher, fastball Kathleen Little sister, Lena, was the catcher And we three made up the team Junior could always score the runs When Lena and I dropped the ball Most of the time, we dodged it Trying not to get hit, we'd fall Poor Junior sure was embarrassed Having to play ball with his sisters Sometimes, friends would play with him Instead of girls who always got blisters A neighborhood boy named Jimmy Had baseball equipment first-rate The boys loved using real bats and mitts Until Jimmy gave them all the gate Jimmy was a spoiled rotten rich kid Who got peeved when he didn't get his way When he made an out, he left the game Took his equipment and went away The boys assessed their situation Going home calling Jimmy a rat And Junior ended up playing with his sisters In another game of three-eyed cat Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© June 13, 2007 All Rights Reserved
