....Rhode Island...La ville la plus française aux États-Unis – the most French city in the United States,
that may by true, I can't say, but it's also home to one of baseballs greats;
when the textiles left New England, this is one of many gone, it's sad,
so many people out of work then, and that included my dad.

The is the hometown of Nap Lajoie, a batting average champ,
one of five in history for an intentional walk, with the bases loaded, what camp,
his batting average was an amazing feat, just great,
so, welcome to Woonsocket in the Ocean State.
