Write a parody of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame"

A parody or musical parody is when you change the lyrics to something funny using the same melody of a song.

For example, you could sing "I hope we have ice cream for din-ner" to the tune of the first line of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame".
-or-
You could try "I want to go to the beach, soon" or "I don't like to do home-work".

Continue writing your parody until you have a full verse.
