The Boston Red Sox - Happy Birthday Fenway Park


Only Big League ballpark I have been to is my own;
Where, thank gods, I've seen more games we've won than those we've blown.
Fenway Park, where strains of Dirty Water fill the air
Every time the Red Sox win another victory there.

This year's the Centennial of my beloved park
And, although the Ladies Rooms are old and rather dark,
I am glad they didn't tear it down and start anew.
Can't replace the history... Perhaps a seat or two?

They've made some improvements but the quirkiness remains;
Pesky's Pole, the Monster... The exposure to the rains -
Lend the place a character that I would never trade.
Happy Birthday Fenway Park; where baseball history's played.
