“Ichiro’s Theme” Lyrics
Go go go go Ichiro
Rounding third and heading for home
Don’t you know
Beats the throw
Dave says on the radio,
“Ichiro, you’re unbelievable”

Rode the wave to the northwest coast
He arrived ten years ago
He manned right field
He’s on patrol
Throwing out runners on a frozen rope

Go go go go Ichiro
Rounding third and heading for home
Don’t you know
Beats the throw
Dave says on the radio,
“Ichiro, you’re unbelievable”

He’s the man, number 51
From the land of the rising sun
He’s at the plate with the game on the line
The M’s are gonna win it every time

Go go go go Ichiro
Rounding third and heading for home
Don’t you know
Beats the throw
Dave says on the radio,
“Ichiro, you’re unbelievable”

Any given moment he could completely blow your mind
So don’t you take your eye
Off Ichiro

He stops the ball with the greatest of ease
And when he steals second, he don’t say please
If they’re not careful he’ll take third too
Oh Ichiro it’s why we love you.

Go go go go Ichiro
Rounding third and heading for home
Don’t you know
Beats the throw
Dave says on the radio,
“Ichiro, you’re unbelievable”

Go go go go Ichiro
Rounding third and heading for home
Everyone knows
He’ll beats the throw
And Dave will yell over the radio,
“Ichiro, you’re unbelievable”
