Dion (i Used To Be A) Brooklyn Dodger

Yesterday somehow slipped by me
It died like an old forgotten friend

Didn't I just turn sixteen In May

Now thirty-five's just around the bend

I throw the dice in all of the alleys

C'mon baby, let 'em roll

And boys, If you weren't from Flatbush

Jack, you didn't have any soul

I used to be a Brooklyn Dodger

But I ain't a hitter anymore

You know I had a reputation

I loved to hear the home crowd roar

You know I never had a nickel

Just my freedom, girl, and the time

And now all I have Is a memory

Of a street dodger in in hid prime

Now Haley's comets are remembered

as flash across the sky

And if I had my leather jacket

I swear I'd give it all another try

I used to be a Brooklyn Dodger

But I ain't a hitter anymore

You know I had a reputation

I loved to hear the home crowd roar

I used to be a Brooklyn Dodger

But I don't play there anymore.
