“Joe DiMaggio Done It Again,” by Billy Bragg and Wilco

The lyrics of this song are amusing, to say the least.  I especially chuckled at the bit about Grandma jerking the beard off Grandpa’s chin.  The moral of the story is: don’t ever underestimate Joe DiMaggio.

  1. The lyrics were actually written by Woody Guthrie … Billy Bragg and Wilco were given notebooks of Guthrie lyrics that had never become songs and they created the music. The Mermaid Avenue albums that resulted are treasures!

    One of the great things about baseball is that you see things you never believed you would–for instance, “Joe DiMaggio” and “Billy Bragg” in the same sentence.
