A Tribute to Tyler “The Great” White

A Tribute to Tyler “The Great” White

(Singable to the old “Chicken Dance” Melody)

At the end of A’s Game Three

Tyler White’s all we can see

Trotting round the base paths free

Marching into history.

 

What we need’s no mystery

A shot of Astros chemistry

Firing every time we play

Both at home and far away.

 

No time for us to sit and gloat

As ‘Stros paint the orange coat

Our joy spills from all they tote

…. We’re gonna need a bigger boat.

Thank You, Tyler White, for today’s chemical bite!
