The Boys of Autumn

The boys of spring are playing for the fall
Looking to the long run, going for it all
Putting on the leather, tightening up the laces
Laying out the lumber, swinging for the fences, touching all the bases
Time for us to gather, time to light a spark
You got your national pastime, down here at the park

The boys of summer, getting in the groove
Dancing on the baseline, ‘bout to make a move
The line is moving, the boys are in the zone
Taking their leads, it’s a suicide squeeze, wind up safe at home
It’s a party in the afternoon, party after dark
Fireworks ‘til October, here at Nationals Park

The boys are going for it all
From the dreams of winter, playing deep into the fall

The boys of autumn see it’s coming soon
Defying gravity, reaching for the moon
Things are rarely perfect, no one wins them all
But you can win the ones that matter, deep into the fall
You know it’s really happening, you see them make their mar
Chasing the pennant, chasing that ring, here at Nationals Park

The boys are going for it all
Keep the good times rolling, deep into the fall
You got your national pastime down here at the park
Chasing that pennant, chasing that ring, here at Nationals Park
