Hitting

vs. 1
You never know what life might serve --
a fast ball when we wait on the curve.
Sometimes it's best to take what we get
and go for it with no regret.

vs. 2
Just take a chance, take a swing,
use your bat, see what it will bring.
Strike out or hit it out of the park
but don't let life be a question mark.

chorus
Don't let those missed opportunities
be your regrets as you grow older --
you can't steal second with your foot on first,
you can't get a hit with the bat on your shoulder.

vs. 3
Life's a game that deserves respect
so always hustle when you connect,
whether it looks like a foul or a hit
'cause it ain't nothin' till the ump calls it!

instrumental break

bridge
Your name is on the lineup card,
the game's not over so play it hard.

repeat chorus (and vs 1?)

One of those rather simple and throwaway-able songs I turn out now and again. I suppose it's performable/recordable but it wouldn't be a high priority. Shoot, wouldn't be any kind of priority. The thoughts here are not very original and, I dare say, on the shallow side.
