The Greatest Lyrics

The Greatest by Kenny Rogers  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music



The Greatest Little boy in a baseball hat
Stands in the feild with his ball and bat
Says, ''I am the greatest player of them all.''
Put his bat on his shoulder and he tosses up the ball.

And the ball goes up and the ball comes down
Swings his bat all the way around
The worlds so still he can hear the sound
The baseball falls to the ground.

Now the little boy doesn't say a word
Picks up his ball, he is undeterred
Says, ''I am the greatest there has ever been.''
And he grits his teeth and he tries it again.

And the ball goes up and the ball comes down
Swings his bat all the way around
The worlds so still he can hear the sound
The baseball falls to the ground.

He makes no excuses
He shows no fear
He just closes his eyes
And listens to the cheers.

Little boy, he adjusts his hat
Picks up his ball, stares at his bat
Says, ''I am the greatest, the game is on the line.''
And he gives his all one last time.

And the ball goes up when the moons so bright
Swings his bat with all his might
And the worlds so still as still can be
And the baseball falls and thats strike three.

Now it's suppertime and his mama calls
Little boy starts home with his bat and ball
Says, ''I am the greatest that is a fact.''
''But even I didn't know I could pitch like that!''

Says, ''I am the greatest
That is understood
But even I didn't know
I could pitch that good.''...
