Oh I'm a going to tell you if you don't know
Bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum
About a great ball player from a long time ago
Bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba buh bum
Who's a hero to me I ain't putting you on son
Cause I'm now going to tell the story of baseball's great Walter Johnson
And all through baseball he was loved and respected
Well bitterness in Walter Johnson? It was never detected

Well now when pitchers throw their pitch to scare
Bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum
They actually try to almost hit that opposing player
Doo da doo da doo da doo da doo da doo da doo
Walter Johnson wouldn't do that not even just a little
He made sure he through the baseball right down the middle
And all through baseball he was loved and respected
Was there bitterness in Walter Johnson? Well it was never detected

Now he pitched for the Washington Senators back in about 1924, now 1906
Now look when the Washington 9 was inclined to win
Bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum
Cause Walter Johnson would actually ease up a little on the opposition, that's right
Bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum
Now the other team mates they simply didn't get it
They said "Walter how come you let him hit it?"
Now Walter just told them with his gentle smile
"Boys, This game isn't any fun if you don't get a hit once in a while."
Now all through baseball he was loved and respected.
Was there bitterness in Walter Johnson? Well it was never detected

Now a record's just a record a book is just a book
Bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum
This Walter Johnson I speak of never so much as gave the opposing team a dirty look
Bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum ba bum
And a season's just a season in game that was supposed to be just a game
Walter Johnson cared about people more than he cared about fame
So all through baseball he was loved and respected
Ah bitterness in Walter Johnson? Well it was never detected
