But the old man wouldn't pay                    |-6---6-5---6--------------
So he packed his glove and took his arm         |-7---7-6---7--------------

Come up where the yankees are
Dress up in a pin-stripe suit
Smoke a custom-made cigar
Wear an alligator boot.
Catfish, million dollar man
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can.
