lyrics

Satchel Paige

I have a good friend
His name is Satchel
They never let him pitch
He was a natural
He hurled that seed
A hundred miles
He tossed that pea
About as hard as can be

I wanna be somebody
I'll never be like they are
I gotta be somebody
I'll never get quite that far

Something about
The way she stood
Yeah on the sand man
The water wrapped itself around her ankles
You know something Satch
I really dug this girl
But I never told her
Always something holding us back
Holding us back, yes

I wanna love somebody
That I can do nice things for
I wanna meet somebody
That I don't have to perform for

I wanna be somebody
I'll never be like they are
I gotta be somebody
I'll never get quite that far
I wanna love somebody
That I can do nice things for
I wanna meet somebody
That I don't have to perform for
