Willie Mays: The Say Hey Kid

video
I'm a lifelong Yankee fan who grew up idolizing Mickey Mantle, but I must admit that Willie was the greatest.
sung by the Treniers, the lyrics

Say hey, Say who, Say Willie,
Say hey, Say who, Swinging at the plate
Say hey, Say who, Say Willie,
That Giants' kid is great
When he fits the ball it's long gone man
Hits it farther than Campy can
Swings the bat like a little lead pipe
When they reach the ball it's overripe
Say hey, Say who, Say Willie,
Say hey, Say who, Swinging at the plate
Say hey, Say who, Say Willie,
That Giants' kid is great
He runs the bases like a choo choo train
Swings around second like an airplane
His cap flies off when he passes third
And he heads home like an eagle bird
Say hey, Say who, Say Willie,
Say hey, Say who, Swinging at the plate
Say hey, Say who, Say Willie,
That Giants' kid is great
Yes he covers center like he had jet shoes
The other batters get the Willie blue
Anything hit his way is out
Man it just don't pay those guys to clout
Say hey, Say who, Say Willie,
Say hey, Say who, Swinging at the plate
Say hey, Say who, Say Willie,
That Giants' kid is great
When Willie served his Uncle Sam
He left the Giants in an awful jam
But now he's back
And he's Leo's joy
And Willie's still a growing boy
Say Hey, Say Who, Say Willie,
Say Hey, Say Who, Swinging at the plate
Say hey, Say who, Say Willie,
That Giants' kid is great
That Giants' kid is great
Say Willie
What you going to say
Say Hey

Great Stuff; I am so happy to find the lyrics to this song. I was trying to transpose them by listening to the recording but I couldn't get all the words. So happy to find them. This stuff is precious ... Say, Hey - one of the all time greats!
