ALL - Vida Blue
Open up your mouth
Give me perfect words I’ve never heard
I’m ready now, let’s go
Burn my world; a southpaw curve
Fast and hard — like Vida blue
ALL- Vida Blue
Open up your mouth, give me perfect words I’ve never heard.
I’m ready now lets go.
Burn my world a southpaw curve,
Fast and hard, like Vida Blue
Baseball Is Back!
