Big Ben Christmas Special: Yankee Bells, It’s Stanton’s Time in the City

0 Comments

Thanks Santa!

Yankee Bells, Yankee Bells
It’s Christmas time in the South Bronx
Dingers-ring, (dingers-ring)
Watch them zing (watch them zing)
Soon it will be Opening Day

Judge home runs, Stanton home runs
Sailing into the stands
In the air there’s a feeling of parades
Children laughing, big flies passing
Watching bomb after bomb
Over the Mets’ fans’ crying you hear

Sup?

Yankee Bells, Yankee Bells
It’s Christmas time in the South Bronx
Dingers-ring, (dingers-ring)
Watch them zing (watch them zing)
Soon it will be Opening day

Strings of runs scored, crooked numbers
Blinking on the scoreboard
Fans rush home with their treasures
Hear the bat crunch, see the kids bunch
This is Stanton’s big day
Over the Mets’ fans’ crying you hear

Bash Bombers

Yankee Bells, Yankee Bells
It’s Christmas time in the South Bronx
Dingers-ring, (dingers-ring)
Watch them zing (watch them zing)
Soon it will be Opening day

Judge home runs, Stanton home runs
Sailing into the stands
In the air there’s a feeling of parades
Children laughing, big flies passing
Watching bomb after bomb
Very soon it will be Opening day
