Fifty six years after moving West, the Giants took the World Series trophy to the city by the Bay for the first time! The last time the Giants won they were the New York Giants and they were playing in the Polo Grounds in New York. The incomparable Willie Mays was the team leader. Here is an unforgettable song about the Say Hey Kid! Willie Mays can never be forgotten.
Award winning Danny Mack produced, arranged this song. Danny has done it again by giving us a wonderful rendition of the meaning of Willy Mays to America. But, the song is not only about Willie but much more about life. The song WILLIE MAYS COME BACK AND PLAY brings us back to the time when there were no drug induced heroes and when it was a joy to watch the joyful Willy Mays play ball. Danny Mack continues his artistry with Joe Pickering's songs. He has sung, produced and arranged a number of Joe's songs on the CD's Baseball Songs Sports Heroes 2 and 3 which have been accepted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame Sound Collection This time Danny brings us further delight. Please read the song lyric below!!
WILLIE MAYS COME BACK AND PLAY!
SAY HEY WILLIE MAYS COME BACK AND PLAY!
TURN BACK THE CLOCK TO YESTERDAY
NO DRUG INDUCED HERO, BASEBALL HERO FOR REAL
HOW YOU PLAYED THE GAME WAS YOUR APPEAL
RUN,HIT,FIELD,AND THROW YOU GAVE YOUR ALL
A JOY TO WATCH! YOU WERE MISTER BASEBALL
WE NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER TODAY
WILL ANOTHER WILLIE EVER COME TO PLAY?
BASEBALL NEEDS YOUR EXCITEMENT AND YOUR DRIVE
WILLIE MAYS YOU MADE BASEBALL COME ALIVE
MANY MILLIONS ALIVE TODAY WERE UNBORN
THEY NEVER SAW YOU WHERE HAVE THE YEARS GONE?
A GOD ROAMED THE POLO GROUNDS CENTERFIELD THAT DAY
NO MERE HUMAN EVER MADE BASEBALL'S GREATEST PLAY
SAY HEY WILLIE CAN YOU CATCH AND RETURN YESTERDAY?
OH WILLIE MAYS CAN YOU CATCH AND RETURN YESTERDAY?
REPEAT LAST LINE IN CHORUS SEVERAL TIMES
