Take me out to the ball game. (Pretend to throw a baseball.)
Take me out to the crowd. (Pretend to bat a ball.)
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks. (Hold up right hand and then left.)
I don’t care if we never get back, (Shake head NO.)
For I’ll root, root, root for the home team. (Fist in the air.)
If they don’t win it’s a shame. (Hold open palms and shrug shoulders.)
For it’s one, two, three strikes (Hold up 3 fingers one at a time.)
You’re out (Thumb over shoulder.)
At the old ball game.
*This is a great opportunity to expand children’s vocabulary. What does it mean to “root”? What’s a “shame”? Let children who play baseball explain to their classmates what a diamond, base, umpire, and other terms mean.
