Fortune Favors The Fools - Lyrics

Now the Babe pointed to the left field
As he let two strikes go by.
He tipped his cap, dug in his heels
And looked that pitcher in the eye.

They said he was too old to make first base
And too fat to run that far.
But he showed them you don't have to run that fast
When you can knock it out of the park.

Well I was there the day Mel Fisher
Brought that treasure up from the deep.
And I knew the cost of what he'd lost
'Cause fortunes don't come cheap.

But he never pulled up anchor.
He never quit or lost the faith.
And with every dawn for twenty years
He had no doubt, "Today's the day".

So when you're swingin' for the bleachers
You don't think about first base.
And don't even set your sail if you don't plan to win the race.
'Cause no sailor worth his salt
Ever stopped to count the cost.
So when you go after Jaws, bring along the tartar sauce.

Now the Babe he might have got strike three,
And Mel, he might have failed.
And history would just have
Two less stories to tell.

Cause for every blaze of glory,
A thousand more went down in flames.
But God, he loves the fools
Who have the guts to play the game.

So when you're swingin' for the bleachers
You don't think about first base.
And don't even set your sail if you don't plan to win the race.
'Cause no sailor worth his salt
Ever stopped to count the cost.
So when you go after Jaws, bring along the tartar sauce.
Yes when you go after Jaws, bring a tub of tartar sauce.

So just take your best shot,
Give it all you've got,
And don't stop to read the rules.
Remember, today's the day fortune favors the fools.
