"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"
