The Early Days
Words and Music by Deuce Bender

Diego Sequi threw the very first pitch
Ruppert Jones, the first guy we admired
Craig Reynolds at short, Darrell Johnson held court
With Tom Paciorek, Bruce Bochte and Danny Meyer

Julio Cruz he had wings on his shoes
Bob Stinson, ole Scrap Iron to us
Glenn Abbott, Mike Parrott never threw in the towel
And Lenny Randle once blew the ball foul

In the Ms early years all the players we cheered
Were castoffs and young guys just wanting to play
Though they dont have the fame, they still wore the name
They were Mariners in the early days

Lee Stanton, Leon Roberts won the Ms triple crown
Maury Wills tried to fire the team up
Enrique Romo, Shane Rawley coming in in the ninth
To save Floyd Bannister, Jim Beattie and Rick Honeycutt

Willie Horton, Jeff Burroughs, Al Cowens passed through
As their playing days came to a close
Richie Zisk, Gorman Thomas, Gaylord Perry stopped by
Rene Lachemann was doing all right
Mario Mendoza once hit .245


Phil Bradley, Jim Presley, Spike Owen could play
Bill Caudill was crazy, Mike Morgan was young
Bob Kearney, Scott Bradley behind the plate
Dave Valle emerged, Alvin Davis came on

Jack Perconte, Harold Reynolds, Billy Swift on the mound
Mike Moore and Mark Langston were strong
And everyone thought we see wonderful things
From Danny Tartabull and Ivan Calderon
But Dick Williams couldnt fix what was wrong
