about

"Dock Ellis"

I wanna tell you a story
Very special to me
About my favorite ballplayer
In the MLB
It was the twelfth of June
1970
Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter
While tripping LSD

Now a man gets bored
In the summer heat
Sometimes you gotta give yourself
Just a little treat
Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter
While tripping LSD
Ain't no other ballplayer
Got shit on me

Never thought that he would
Be the one to take one for the team
No I'm not gonna beg,
I'm not gonna pay
For what I get for free

Said Roberto Clemente
He got lost at sea
And I miss my brother
I miss him terribly

Never thought that he would
Be the one to take one for the team

Now I don't complain
When my team gets beat
I gotta kick myself
For having two left feet
Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter
Tripping LSD
Man, ain't no other ballplayer
Got shit on me

Never thought that he would
Be the one to take one for the team
No I'm not gonna beg,
I'm not gonna pay
For what I get for free
For what I get for free

Now I don't complain
When my team gets beat
I gotta kick myself
For having two left feet
Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter
While tripping LSD
Man, ain't no other ballplayer
Got shit on me
