Original lyrics to `Take Me Out to the Ball Game'

Complete lyrics to ``Take Me Out to the Ball Game'' as originally published in 1908:

Katie Casey was baseball mad,

Had the fever and had it bad;

Just to root for the home town crew,

Ev'ry sou

Katie blew.

On a Saturday, her young beau

Called to see if she'd like to go,

To see a show but Miss Kate said ``No,

I'll tell you what you can do:''

Take me out to the ball game,

Take me out with the crowd.

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,

I don't care if I never get back,

Let me root, root, root for the home team,

If they don't win it's a shame.

For it's one, two, three strikes you're out,

At the old ball game.''

Katie Casey saw all the games,

Knew the players by their first names;

Told the umpire he was wrong,

All along

Good and strong.

When the score was just two to two,

Katie Casey knew what to do,

Just to cheer up the boys she knew,

She made the gang sing this song:

Take me out to the ball game,

Take me out with the crowd.

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,

I don't care if I never get back,

Let me root, root, root for the home team,

If they don't win it's a shame.

For it's one, two, three strikes you're out,

At the old ball game.
