Get Rid Of The Advertisements

I wanted to hang out.....
 
I wanted to hang out with my dad and my brother
But they were practicing ball and I was a bother
Home plate...I thought was a perfect standing place
Until my brother swung the bat and hit me dead in the face

I normally wouldn’t go outside with them to play
I don’t know what made me do it this day
But as luck would have it, I did just that
I just wish I wasn’t standing behind the bat

My face was crushed but I cried just a little while
Then I came running back outside with a bloody smile
My daddy was in the middle of hitting him a pop fly
For catching those pops my brother had a good eye

Daddy told me to move, but I didn’t hear what he said
And that damn ball fell at a rapid speed on top’my head
I was a quite dizzy and daddy was shocked and yelled
He said “Damn Macy !!! What the hell !”

Then my mama came running when she heard my cries
Daddy said please make her go in the house before she dies
I was hurt but too embarrassed to just take off and run
I went inside--wishing I would have went elsewhere for fun

I wanted to hang out with my dad and my brother
But they were practicing ball and I was a bother
