Thre are two sides to me,
two totally different sides.

There is a side that everybody knows,
and then there is a side that is dyeing to be unleashed,
the side that nobody would ever guess,
hat side needs to come alive.

The die harde Joe Crede fan--
that's the other side fo me.
The die hard Joe Crede fan
is the side that makes me who I am.

I watch him every time he plays,
whether it's at the park or on TV.
I love it when he hits grand slams,
ties the game,
and bats runs in.

The bases are loaded,
Joe's up to bat.
Will he do what he did last week?
A grand slam
or strand all three?

The pitch is released,
Joe swings with all his might.
The ball zips through the air. It's going back, back...
it's in the stands.

"YOU CAN PUT IT ON THE BOARD...YES! GRAND SLAM JOE CREDE"

I scream from the top of my lungs
HE'S DONT IT AGAIN!
JOE CREDE HAS DONE IT AGAIN!

He makes his way
around the bases.
He reaches home plate
and is greeted by his teammates.

By now I am calming down,
but I sill have the burst of adrenaline
rapidly rushing up and down my body.
The feeling of exitment
steadily takes over.
This feeling is like no other,
it's a grade slam feeling!

I now know
the unleashed part of me
has come alive for the world to see.
