Who discovered the land
Of the brave and the free?
I don't know, I don't know.
'Twas Christy Columbus
Is what they tell me.
May be so, I don't know.
There's only one Christy
That I know at all
One Christy that I ever saw.
He's the one who discovered
The fade away ball,
And he pitches for Muggsy McGraw

Baseball, baseball
Ain't it a wonderful game?
Old Christy Colum'
Found this country, by gum
But the extras don't carry his name.
If old man Columbus
Had sat in the stand
Had seen Matty pitching that
"Fader" so grand
He'd have said
Boys, I'm glad I discovered this land.
Gee! it's a wonderful game.

Who lost out in the battle
Of old Waterloo?
I don't know, I don't know.
They say 'twas Na-po-le-on
May be it's true.
May be so, I don't know.
The pink sheets don't print
Mr. Bonaparte's face
No stories about him today,
'Cause he never could hold down
That old second base
Like his name sake,
Big Nap Lay'-oo-way.

Baseball, baseball
Ain't it a dandy old game?
The gen'ral of France
Couldn't lead 'em like Chance,
So no wonder his Waterloo came.
If down in his pocket
Napoleon had dug,
Had paid his five francs
To see Tyrus Cobb slug,
He'd have said, I give up:
I'm a bug, I'm a bug!
Gee! it's a wonderful game
