Grandma goes to Opening Day

"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 Mariners,

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

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

At the old ball game."

An Afternoon at the Seattle Center

Whirly-gig, Whirly-gig
Take me up high
High enough to reach the sky

Whirly-gig Whirly-gig
Zoom past mars
Far enough to catch the stars
Whirly-gig Whirly-gig
Drive me fast
Fast enough to blur the past

Whirly-gig Whirly-gig

Take me along

Together we play among the throng

Whirly-gig, Whirly-gig

Spin me about
About until I turn inside-out

Whirly-gig, Whirly-gig,
Fly me around
Around and around above the ground

Whirly-gig, Whirly-gig,

The day is done and said

Take me to bed

so back home is where we head.
