The Wait 12

“Extra load? Not me, I’m not taking no load.”
-Ramon Laureano

I pulled in from 66th, was feelin’ about half past dead
I just need some place to straighten out my head
“Hey, Montas, can you throw me some shut-out ball instead?”
He just grinned and looked at me, “run support” was all he said

Take the load off, Frankie
Take the load from me
Take the load off, Frankie
And (and) (and) don’t put the load right on me
(Don’t put the load right on me)

I picked up my bat, I went lookin’ for a place to hide
When I saw Chapman and Vimael walkin’ side by side
I said, “Hey, Chapman, come on let’s go Pound Town”
He said, “I gotta go but Machin can stick around”

Take the load off, Chappy
Take the load from me
Take the load off, Chappy
And (and) (and) don’t put the load right on me
(Don’t put the load right on me)

Get down, Mitch Moreland, there’s nothin’ you can say
It’s just ol’ Lowrie and Lowrie’s hittin’ like it’s Judgement Day
“Well, Lowrie, my friend, what about young Canha, see?”
He said, “Do me a favor, son, won’tcha stay and keep Canha some company?”

Take the load off, Canha
Take the load from me
Take the load off, Canha
And (and) (and) don’t put the load right on me
(Don’t put the load right on me)

Chadwick Pinder followed me and he caught me in a fog
He said, “I will fix your swing then you’ll jack like a dog.”
I said, “Wait a minute, Pinder, you know I ain’t a dead pull man”
He said, “That’s Olson, boy, won’t you heed him when you can”

Yeah, take the load off, Oly
Take the load from me
Take the load off, Oly
And (and) (and) don’t put the load right on me
(Don’t put the load right on me)

Catch a ball with cannon arm to nail ‘em down the line
My bat is swingin’ free and I do believe it’s time
To get back with Piscotty, you know I’m the only one
Can’t take no extra load with regrets to everyone

Take the load off, Scotty
Take the load from me
Take the load off, Scotty
And (and) (and) don’t put the load right on me
(Don’t put the load right on me)

    “I gotta go but Machin can stick around.” Ouch.

    “…won’tcha stay and keep Canha some company?” Yes, I hear Phil singing that verse.
