WEEKEND WARRIOR

Ice it down, stretch it out, wrap it up, gotta get ready. I'm a weekend warrior

One more game, one more day, one more swing and one more play for the weekend warrior

 

I don't just play because I look so good in polyester. I do it 'cause it makes me feel alive

After working all week long, I tend to get a little stressed

But when I step out on that field, I feel all right

 

My wife says quit, my kids ask why, the coach says sit but I can’t lie. I'm a weekend warrior

It could be my last, never know. One game down and one to go for the weekend warrior

 

At my age, I should be playing golf or sleeping late

But I like to sweat and get dirty. I like to step up to the plate

 

Aches and pains, muscle tears, limping up and down the stairs. I'm a weekend warrior

On Monday morn, I can’t run or throw but six more days, I’ll be ready to go. I'm a weekend warrior

MIDDLE AGE LOVE

I was 40-something, she was something else

We had lunch down by the water, it was different I could tell

The time flew by, we said goodbye but we knew we’d meet again

 

(It was) middle age love. It’s strange, it’s crazy, makes you glad, makes you blue

Middle age love, you get the teenage jitters, don’t know what to do

It's wonderful, it's painful and it's all so very new. Middle age love

 

We spent all day at the fair, walking hand in hand

The sun went down, we hung around and listened to the band

The music flowed, I held her close, it was special, I just knew

 

Some things last forever, some aren't meant to be

But the next thing I knew that lovely lady was right back next to me

If you’re 16 or you’re 46, first love you don’t forget

 

SNOW

Snow is comin', I saw it in the paper. I bought some chains and a plastic ice scraper

I looked up at the heavens and gave a sigh

'cause y'know that I get really down and I consider leavin' town

When I see that white stuff falling from the sky

 

When I was a kid, I thought snow was cool, it looked so nice and closed down school

And we built snowmen out in the yard

But now that stuff has lost its thrill and snow is just a bitter pill

And one that I've been takin' pretty hard

 

Outside it’s snowin', the winds are a-blowin' and all the while I'm knowin' I’ll be trapped here for days

Of all kinds of weather I think snow is such a pain

'Cause you can’t get stuck in the wind and you don’t have to shovel rain

 

We can seed the clouds up in the sky, beat the heat, dehumidify

But when that snow comes, our hands are tied

I admit it might have more appeal if I were a polar bear or seal, but I'm just me and I just wanna hide

 

I don't ski and I don't sled but I once slipped and broke my head walkin' in that winter wonderland

I’m gonna move someplace where it doesn't snow

Like Timbuktu or Oklahoma, Puerto Rico or maybe Japan

 

PUSHIN' 30

I'm a regular guy, kinda shy. I know where I’m goin' but I don't know why

I’m pushin' 30 but I ain't pushin' too hard

I’m easy goin', always showin' my better side but I can't hide

that I’m pushin' 30 but I ain't pushin' too hard

 

When I was in my teens I had the ways but not the means

Then I turned 20 and I had plenty of cars and bars, and old blue jeans

I'm headed for that big three-oh, I ain't quite ready but don't you know

That I'm pushin' 30 but I ain't pushin' too hard

 

I don't worry how my life is spent, I just play guitar and pay my rent

And I'm pushin' 30 but I ain't pushin' too hard

I'm taking it slow, a day at a time. Who needs money? Not me, y'know I’m

just pushin' 30 but I ain't pushin' too hard

 

Someday I'll settle down somewhere, get a job and cut my hair

But for now I just don't care for that

 

I ain't lookin' ahead, I ain't lookin' behind. I’m lookin' around but all that I find

iS I'm pushin' 30 but I ain't pushin' too hard

I'm taking it slow, a day at a time. Who needs money?Not me, y'know I’m

just pushin' 30 but I ain't pushin' too hard

 

DOUG MIENTIKIEWICZ

Doug Mientkiewicz, he's my favorite player. Doug Mientkiewicz, he's the man, he’s the man

Doug Mientkiewicz, I just love to say it. Doug Mientkiewicz, he's the man, he's the man

 

When he was a Twin, it didn't mean a thing

Then he joined the Sox and Doug Mientkiewicz really rocked

 

Doug Mientkiewicz, he's my favorite player. Doug Mientkiewicz, he's the man, he’s the man

 

He's kind to his mother and a former Gold Glover. Doug may not make the Hall of Fame

But he's got 12 letters in his name

 

Doug Mientkiewicz, I can't even spell it. Doug Mientkiewicz, but I sure do like to yell it

Doug Mientkiewicz, he's my favorite player. Doug Mientkiewicz, he's the man, he's the man

M-I-E-N, T-K-I-E, W-I-C-Z (I think that's right)

 

Doug Mientkiewicz, he's my favorite player. Doug Mientkiewicz, he just took that ball and ran

Doug Mientkiewicz, I just love to say it. Doug Mientkiewicz, he's the man, he's the man

 

 

NEVER SAY NEVER

Never, never, never say never. Because you know that nothing is forever

The more things stay the same, they change just like the weather

So never, never, never say never

 

I packed my skates and shoulder pads and threw 'em in the attic

My days of chasing pucks around were done

Then one day I was asked to play, and I found what I was missing

Now my comeback on the ice has just begun

 

It was one too many noisy bars, I decided I'd had it. My guitar pickin' days were at an end

But I got so sad one day, I began to play and I found what I was missing

So here I am back on the stage again

 

When my woman left me, I just hung my head and cried

I said, “That's it, I'm done, I'm through with love”

But then I met that dark-haired girl and I found what I was missing

She was everything that I'd been dreaming of
