Joe DiMaggio Done It Again
Joe Deemaggyoe done it again!
Joe Deemaggyoe done it again!
Clackin' that bat, Gone with the wind!
Joe Deemaggyoe done it again!

Some folks thot Big Joe was done
Some jus figgered Joe was gone
Steps to the platter with a great big grin;
Joe Deemaggyoe's done it again!

I'ma gonna tele ya jist th' way I feel;
Man cain't run without his heel;
Watch that raggypill split the wind!
Joe Deemaggyoe's done it again!

All three fielders jumped their best;
Tryin' ta climb that highboard fence;
They all growed whiskers on their chins!
Joe Deemaggyoe's done it again!

Up along them clouds where the eagle roams;
Joe cracked that ball to whine and moan;
His buddies laugh as they trot on in;
Joe Deemaggyoe's done it again!

Grandmaw's home by the radio
On the telleyevizzion awatchin' Joe;
She jerks the beard offa grandpaw's chin;
Joe Deemaggyoe's done it again!

The puppy dog barked at the posseye kat;
How does it look from where you set?
Looks like a cyclone slidin' in
Joe Deemaggyoe's done it again!
