Gonna eat what I pick And I hope you choke on it I'm proud to break a sweat Too late For *Satchel Paige It's a **Gary Cooper story And it shines like Sammy's knee Babe, what I pick I hope you choke on it When I dance I raise the dead With a nickel in my hat I wanna get your big smile I'm proud to break a sweat My black ass * Satchel Paige was a great American baseball pitcher. After excelling in the American Negro League when the game was segregated, Paige moved to the Major League in 1948, a year after his former teammate Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball. He was 42, making him the oldest player to ever debut in that league. ** A reference to Pride of the Yankees, a Gary Cooper movie about Lou Gehrig.
