The Tale of Mr. Morton (Spoiler: He Lost)

To the tune of Schoolhouse Rock classic Mister Morton.

This is the tale of Charlie Morton
Mister Morton is who?
He’s a starting pitcher
And today he helped the  Phillies lose
Mister Morton walked up to the mound
Mister Morton walked
Mister Morton talked to his catcher
Mister Morton talked
(Hello, Chooch, you look good)
Mister Morton was ready
Mister Morton was

Mister Morton is the pitcher of the ballgame
And what a losing pitcher he was

Mister Morton hit a single
Mister Morton hit
Mister Morton lit up the basepath
Mister Morton lit
Mister Morton was getting cocky
Mister Morton was

Mister Morton is the pitcher of the ballgame
And what a losing pitcher he was

The game was going smoothly
The Phils were up 2-1 once again
That’s what starting pitching’s all about
And then began the fourth
And with two runners on the board
Jay Bruce hit a baseball out

Mister Morton tried to get out of the jam
Mister Morton tried
Mister Morton loaded up the bases
Mister Morton was fried
Mister Morton was very nervous
Mister Morton was

Mister Morton is the pitcher of the ballgame
And what a losing pitcher he was

The coach came
Stumpf arrived
The Reds batted 13 men
(Come on guys- come on!)
The inning was only completed when
Five more men came in

Mister Morton  was knocked out of the game
Mister Morton was knocked
Mister Morton sat on the bench
Yes, he just sat there and rocked
Mister Morton was a defeated man
The Phils never got back the lead again

Mister Morton paced to the dugout
Mister Morton paced
Mister Morton faced the local media
Mister Morton faced
Mister Morton was tired
Mister Morton was
Until he got a little perspective
Who says the bullpen should get all the invective?
Now Mister Morton is determined
And the rest of the Phillies are too

They’ve got a series in New York
Before they come home to lots of boos
