Melmac Orbiters ALF doll from Burger King

"Take Me ALF to the Ballgame" is a song included on a record that came with an ALF doll that Burger King promoted in the 1980s.

Lyrics:

ALF:

The score was six and a half to nothing

on the bouillabaseball field that day.

The Litwhack Chowders were winning

and the sky was a greenish gray.

But when they saw me coming

all of Melmac yelled, "Hooray!"

(CROWD: Boo! Get rid of the rube!)

ALF:
They knew their luck was changing.

It was ALFer's turn to play.

Did I crack under pressure?

Did I buckle under his knuckler?

Not Gordon Shumway

I turned to the roaring crowd and I said,


Take me, ALF, to the ballgame.

Now it's my turn to bat.

It's my favorite of all games

and I'll knock this scuttminder flat.

Lob a couple of fishheads

and I'll send them into the clouds.

Take me, ALF, to the ballgame.

I love the roar of the crowds.


The Chowders all were terrified.

The thrower was a wreck.

He winds it up and lets it fly

and it hits me in the neck.

Yikes!

UMPIRE: Strike one!

ALF: Strike? He beaned me with a trout ball! Where'd you win your umpire license, in a lottery?

Melmac's honor was at stake.

I looked out to the mound.

But this one hits me in the leg

and it knocks me to the ground.

UMPIRE: Strike two!

ALF: Strike?

UMPIRE: Yes, strike! It struck you didn't it?

ALF:

I gripped the bat and braced myself

for the third and final swing.

And just to throw the thrower off

I took time out to sing.


Lob a couple of fishheads

and I'll send them into the clouds.

Take me, ALF, to the ballgame.

'cause I love the roar of the crowds.


The crowd was going crazy.

Screaming out my name.

(GIRL IN CROWD: Hey, Shumway! Take a shower!)

ALF:
The thrower lobbed a wicked curve.

It whistled as it came.

I met it straight and steady.

I connected with a crack.

(ANNOUNCER: It's going. It's going. It's out of here.)

ALF:
It took off like a rocket

an it's never coming back.


Take me, ALF, to the ballgame.

Hear the crack of my bat.

It's my favorite of all games

I knocked that sucker flat.

I'm a bouillabaseball hero

'cause I sent it into the clouds. Ha!

Take me, ALF, to the ballgame.

'cause I love the roar of the,

just adore all the,

love the roar of the crowds.


Hey, not bad for a 230 year old rookie, huh? Ha!
