Here's a baseball song and a true story about a pretty good player with a very good nickname. Go Phillies!
#617- Puddinhead Jones ©2020 by Rob Lincoln (capo 3)
Puddinhead Jones was a baseball player
Was a Phillie for a very long time
Joined the show in 1947
And stayed till ‘59
All star third baseman
Led the league in fielding
Had 6 career grand slams
But you know there’s only one thing
We remember ‘bout that man
Why that nickname Puddinhead?
Why they call you that?
Your ma and pa named you Willie Edward
Not Arnold like that Bake McBride cat
In the 1950’s you were a Whiz Kid
Played with the great Richie Ashburn
Because Richie was blonde some called him Whitey
But why YOUR nickname I’d like to learn
So I decided to google your name
To see where your nickname came from
Turns out it came from a popular song
So I guess I wrote another one
Chorus 2x (sing last line 3x at very end, last time slow it down)
