A baseball strike will be unique;
The players have the owners up the creek.
The players’ demands are cut and dried,
And they say they must be satisfied.
If not they’ll strike, raise the fist,
And here’s where it all takes a different twist.
The millionaire players will just buy a sign
And hire someone to walk the picket line.
This way when it ends, we’ll all surely know
The players will be rested and ready to go.
