lyrics

When I was a boy, I started a baseball card collection
with the explicit promise that someday they would be worth something
I remember spending a lot of time looking at them, wondering
what do you do with baseball cards?
20 years later, I found them in the attic
and I'm excited. Maybe now they're worth something.
Maybe I can retire on my baseball card fortune.
Maybe I'm rich.
So I'm checking the prices
And I bet they're gonna be worth so much money
(a bunch of low monetary values)
I'm never gonna retire.
I'm gonna work forever.
I'll die on the job, die on the job, die on the job..
No no no no no no no no
I'm rechecking the prices
I hope there's at least one that's worth some money.
(low monetary values)
I'm never gonna retire.
I'm gonna work forever.
Die on the job, die on the job...
Cause they're not worth the shipping; they're not worth a thing...
Not even the rookie cards.
Not even the rookie cards.
Why are these guys on cards?
I don't even like baseball.
