An ode to Lucas Duda

New, comments

Oh, the Du-da day

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Kansas City Royals Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

Lucas Duda has been a Tampa Bay Ray for only 28 games, but he has already hit eight home runs and endeared himself to the Rays faithful. And thanks to having an incredibly pun-friendly last name, it is with great honor that we present an Ode to Duda (to the tune of “Camptown Races”):

Home run lovers sing this song,

Du-da, Du-da

He makes those fences not seem long,

Oh the Du-da day

Goin’ to trot all night,

Goin’ to trot all day

I bet my money on a three-run shot,

Someone say versus the Jays

See those homers on a ten-mile track,

Du-da, Du-da

Round the basepaths then repeat,

Oh the Du-da day

Goin’ to trot all night,

Goin’ to trot all day

I bet my money on a three-run shot

Someone say versus the Jays

I went to the game expecting a duel,

Du-da, Du-da

I came back home with three souvenirs,

Oh the Du-da day

Goin’ to trot all night,

Goin’ to trot all day

I bet my money on a three-run shot

Someone say versus the Jays

Oh, the liner to left or the moonshot to right,

Du-da, Du-da

Even against an ace, it’s homers all night,

Oh the Du-da day
