lyrics

Our stream still flows
As their lakes run dry
Trout still will spawn
As the Angels fly

Taking flight
With an astronomical RBI
Meet Mike,
Our Millville Meteorite

The media’s in tow
As the season’s streamed live
All at the way to the heavens,
Twenty-seven ways to die

He's gravity defying
When fielding in Anaheim
Undeniably a match
For greatest of all-time

Let hurricanes come
He'll predict 'em with ease
An amateur weatherman
But no rookie to the league

In the '09 draft
Passed by 21 teams?
Now making an act
Of the acronyms in the MLB

From M-V-P to W-A-R leader
God's Gifted major leaguer
Is statistically timeless

It seems he’ll never falter
If you lead players to water
Can you teach ‘em
How to fish, like this!?

Whether crushed to the left
Or deep-center right
Their fence is neglected
By Magic Mike

Putting runs on the board,
Hear the ring and the crack
As the Angels sing
With every swing of his bat

Fans begin to gather
Halos above their heads
Wings spread wide as grins
Feathers catch the wind

Predators in the water
Start to sneak in
But no one ever taught 'em
How to swim

We’re in flight now
It's always the right crowd
From the opening pitch
'Till the stadium’s, light’s out

A star on the field,
Stand up off the diamond
With a generous light,
Mike Trout

With class, speed, power
And a smile to greets the heavens
It’s no wonder he’s compared
To major league legends

All Star MVP
Like Mays, Garvey, & Carter
A feat unaccomplished
Since Jr, Cal Ripken

No doubt, once Trout’s
Gripping the handle
Features on each network
Keep ya from switching the channel

Channeling the
Best of the majors,
Wagered quick as Rickey Henderson
Moonshots like Mickey Mantle

The Trout Farm beckons
With a net to insist
No question, among them
A legend exists

It seems he’ll never falter
If you lead players to water
Can you teach ‘em
How to fish, like this!?

Whether crushed to the left
Or deep-center right
Their fence is neglected
By Magic Mike

Putting runs on the board,
Hear the ring and the crack
As the Angels sing
With every swing of his bat

Fans begin to gather
Halos above their heads
Wings spread wide as grins
Feathers catch the wind

Predators in the water
Start to sneak in
But no one ever taught 'em
How to swim

Fans begin to gather
Halos above their heads
Right outside the fence
Feathers catch the wind

Predators in the water
Never learned to swim
They'll sink to the bottom
As Angels win
