Lyrics

Satchel Paige said, "Don't look back, something might be gaining on you"
Satchel grew up in a shotgun shack, and he had a pile of shotguns, too
He carried so many bags on a pole that he looked just like a satchel tree
Satchel Paige and the Brown Bambino, that's an everlasting battery

And we don't look back, we don't carry on (In society)
And we don't sit still or we might rust
But at the same time, we don't run, and we don't look back

Satchel Paige said, "I could never be late, they could hardly start the game without me"
Satchel Paige didn't get riled up, though his stomach surely had the miseries
So if you follow these few simple rules, you might have a long, productive run
Satchel pitched about a million games, no one ever did what he has done

And we don't look back, we don't carry on (In society)
And we don't sit still or we might rust
But at the same time, we don't run, and we don't look back
