DD bids Danny farewell

(sung to the traditional Irish Melody Danny Boy)


Oh, Danny Boy, the camps, the camps are calling

Lakeland - Detroit, that way you shall not fly,

The spring is gone, and all the bats are leaving,

It's you must go, it's you must go and I must bide.


But come ye back when spring-time comes to Lakeland,

Or when we need a shortstop for the show,

And I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow,

Oh, Danny Boy, oh Danny Boy, I love you so!


But when ye come, and your O-B-P is dying,

If I'm still here, with Jimmy, Brad and Gene,

Ye'll come and find the place where I am dealing,

And kneel and say pretty, pretty please;


And I shall hear, if you hit the bases running,

And then your WAR on my charts, better be,

And if not, don't tell that you're sorry,

Then I shall sleep in peace until you come next spring!


Original Song as covered by The Pogues
