Out in the sunshine
My mind is goin’ off
I’m starin’ at the grass
I see a fly

I’m in Modesto
Down in the double A’s
My hands are sweatin’ now
Don’t let me down

But if I make this club today
I’ll never go back down, no I’ll be on top to stay

I had a contract
I had a convertible
Coach said he’d look for me
On TV

They said I had promise
I had potential
They don’t say nothin’ now
They let me be

And if I make this club today
I’ll never go back down, no I’ll be on top to stay

Up in the bleachers
People are laughin’ now
Looks like they’re havin’ fun
They’re drinkin’ beer

And why do you write me?
I told you I’m doin’ fine
I don’t have time to write
I got things to do

If I’m gonna make it
I’ve got to concentrate
I’ve been on top before
Gonna be there again

I’m gonna make this club today
I’ll never go back down, no I’ll be on top to stay

Out in the sunshine
My mind is goin’ off
I’m starin’ at the grass
I see a fly
