Allegiance The Musical - Get In The Game Lyrics

"Get In The Game" is a song from the musical Allegiance performed by Telly Leung (Sammy), Lea Salonga (Kei) and Company.

KEI & SAM (spoken):
Get all this cleaned up
What’s the point?
The next storm will bury us again
I’ve started a petition for the camp administrators
You mean wardens
I’ve got a list of requests to make life better here
Now, what do you want?
It’s already cold in here
We need blankets
We need medicine
I’ve got a mattress full of fleas
Can your petition fix that?
They brought us here
Forgot about us
Then left us to rot
That’s not gonna happen
Yeah, we’re at war with Italy
But nobody’s putting Joe DiMaggio in a camp
Look, I understand

SAM (spoken):
Hey!
You got a complaint?
Put it here
Just sign this
(sung)
And remind the folks in charge
There are people here
We must appear united
If you want aspirin
Or bedding without fleas
Or not to freeze
Then get organized with me
As a team, we’ll get it done
We’re not nearly finished here
We have only just begun
So, sign this!
It’s time we got in the game
We just gotta get in
Gotta get in
Gotta get in the
Gotta get in the game
We can’t sit on the sidelines
Look, I’m sayin’ that we

Gotta get in
Gotta get in the
Gotta get in the game

SAM & KEI:
We’re stuck
Who knows how long
And sure it’s wrong
Alone it’s really hard
But as a team we’re strong

SAM:
There’s no use placing blame

SAM & KEI:
We’ve just gotta get in the game

SAM (spoken):
It’s more than just the basics
We have to find a way to make life liveable here
No, enjoyable
Oh, fun even
This is not summercamp
We have to find something we can all do together;
Something that we all like
Mrs. Tanaka, what is it that you miss most about home?

SAM & KEI:
Garden!
Back home, I have so many flowers
And vegetable!
Judo!
That’s against the rules
No Oriental crap allowed, remember?
That’s why we’re petitioning
What else?
Dancing! We could use the Mess Hall
Yeah, jazz it up!
Woo!
Sumo!
We need something we can all do
We need Buddhist Temple
We need Frank Sinatra records!

Hey, listen up!
What about baseball?
Ah…

Gotta get in
Gotta get in
Gotta get
Gotta get in
Gotta get in
Gotta get
Gotta get in the game!

SAM & KEI:
It’s a beautiful day for baseball here
Block 13 up at bat
Gotta get in
The bases full loaded
And two outs is where we’re at
Gotta get in
Gotta get in
Gotta get in the game!
Strike one!
Gotta get in
Gotta get in the game!
Strike two!

Tzo’s at the plate!
(Tzo’s at the plate!)
Hands up high!
(Hands up high!)
Eyes on the ball!
(Eyes on the ball!)
Not to the sky!
(Not to the sky!)
Now everyone get
Home run
That’s how we win!

So we gotta get in
(Gotta get in, gotta get in)
Gotta in the game!
We’re sayin’ that we gotta get in
(Gotta get in, gotta get in)
Gotta get in the game!
We’re stuck
Who knows how long
And sure it’s wrong
Alone it’s really hard
But as a team we’re strong
It’s no big, crazy claim
It’s time we overcame
And got back in the game!
Gotta get in the game!
