The Baseball Counting Song: A Brief History of
the New York Yankees Under George
By Louis Phillips
Ten New York Yankees standing in line.
Nine New York Yankees strode to home
Eight Yankee relievers, sweet as
Seven New York Yankees hated their
Six New York Yankees keep hopes alive.
Five New York Yankees made the crowds
Four New York Yankees out on a spree.
Three New York Yankees hit, caught,
Two New York Yankees thought baseball
One New York Yankee? A superstar!
