Clap clap clap clap
Let's go Yankees! (Substitute your favorite team for Yankees.)
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp (Use your feet.)
Here we go Yankees!
Here we go Yankees, here we go! (Again, substitute your team's name.)
Here we go Yankees here we go!
Or even a curve
Pitch, Pitch, Pitch that ball
We don't care how but
Strike him out!
Whatever it takes
When he hits that ball we
We wanna see the bat break!
For the Umpire

The Super Fan Arsenal
