Carl Yastrzemski, Carl Yastrzemski, Carl Yastrzemski the man we call Yaz (We love him)

Carl Yastrzemski, Carl Yastrzemski, Carl Yastrzemski what power he has!

         D7
Ah, our Boston team is always on the bean, cause we got Yaz
We fenway fans we stop and clap our hands at Yaz's Jazz
Those rival pitchers on the mound all shake
They dread each windup that they have to make
When number eight is at the plate,
and then he swings, and wow there it goes again

and wow there it goes again, and wow there it goes again

A rival batter hits one off the wall
And there's Yastrzemski going for the ball
They try for two, the runner knows he's through
Look at Yaz, wow he threw him out again

Carl Yastrzemski, Carl Yastrzemski, Carl Yastrzemski the man we call Yaz (We love him)
Carl Yastrzemski, Carl Yastrzemski, Carl Yastrzemski he's the idol of Boston, Mass        

On Beacon hill, he gives 'em quite a thrill
In Southie too there's lots of 'whooptee-doo'
In the North End they call Carl friend, and they hope the season will never end

From Wellsey way they come to watch him play
And on cape cod they take a holiday
From all above they come to shout,
"You know for Yaz, the hit was out!'

The state of Maine is going quite insane
And in Vermont it's only Yaz they want
From every state, they come to wait
To Yastrzemski at home plate

Our Boston team, it's always on the bean, cause we got Yaz
We Fenway fans we stop and clap our hands at Yaz's jazz
Although Yastrzemski is a lengthy name, it fits quite nicely in the hall of fame
We love him so, in Boston we all know that when he swings, (Yeah!) here we go again!

[Baseball player of polish family origin. Played for Boston Red Sox, 1961-1983. Yastrzemski enjoyed his best season in 1967, when he won the

American League Triple Crown with a .326 batting average, 44 home runs (tied with Harmon Killebrew) and 121 RBI. He is the last hitter to have

won the Triple Crown as of the 2005 season (five different pitchers have since won the pitchers' version). He was voted Most Valuable Player

almost unanimously (one voter chose CÚsar Tovar of the Twins).]
