TRIVIA QUIZ: WHAT ARE THE FIRST WORDS TO “TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME?”

You’re gonna win a lot of radio trivia call-in contests with this one. Ask the host/dj/shockjock what the first words to the popular song, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” are. And then nail him with this:

“Katie Casey was base ball mad.
Had the fever and had it bad;
Just to root for the home town crew,
Ev’ry sou Katie blew.
On a Saturday, her young beau
Called to see if she’d like to go,
To see a show but Miss Kate said,
“No, I’ll tell you what you can do.”

“Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don’t care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don’t win it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out,
At the old ball game.”

From Jack Noworth, 1908, via baseball-almanac.com
