One day I was thinkin' 'bout the Babe
And the memories he let behind
Of the old ballgame and
The shame of it all is they're almost gone
But there's still a few pieces I can recall

The catcher says to Ruth
"You know it's just a game
You win, you lose
But it's all the same"
And the Babe would turn and say
"You know, you're right
But I still love to play"

And Ruth, she turns to me
And wonders where I am
And where I'd be
If she didn't care
I return to Ruth to say
"You know I'd be all right
But I'd still love to play"

The pitcher throws at Ruth
He can't afford to miss
He held the ball
Like a stolen kiss
And the Babe just let it fly
And apologized
Like he'd hurt the guy

Mad Ruth just loves to bitch
She can afford to miss
She makes a deal
As you steal a kiss
And she never says goodbye
She really loves the game
She hardly know the guy

Mad Ruth
You should have known the Babe
He loved the things he'd never had
And he made you happy
As he made you sad

The Babe here in my head
Seems like he never left
I heard the news
Like someone deaf
It was 1948
He'd played a game, but he'd made it great

Mad Ruth sits on the couch
In someone else's room
"I win, oh, you lose
It's just a game," she'll say
You know, she's right
But I'd still love to play

Mad Ruth
You should have known the Babe
He loved the things he'd never had
And he made you happy
As he made you sad

Mad Ruth, you would have loved the babe
She wanted things you'd never had
And she made you happy
'Til she left you sad

One evenin' I was thinkin' 'bout the babe
And the memories she left behind
Of the old ball game
And the shame of it all
Is they're almost gone
But there're still a few pieces
That I can recall

"Mad Ruth
You should have known the Babe"
