Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On a Bad Bet is a song from Fall Out Boy's fourth studio album, Folie à Deux. The song was released prior to Folie à Deux on October 7, 2008, as one of the few songs that were released before the album was released.

A short film was released in 2009 that featured the song in it, titled "A Weekend at Pete Rose's". In it, Brendon Urie and Spencer Smith of Panic! At the Disco are discussing their favorite 80's movies when they discover Pete Wentz lying dead on the beach. Their initial thought is to call for help, but they then decide to carry his body around and take pictures so that they can gain more Twitter followers.

The lyrics were written by Pete Wentz, while the music itself was written by Fall Out Boy.

LyricsEdit

Mr. Sandman is showing his beam
When he walks into the room the walls lean in to listen
Surfed out brain waves flicker back and forth
Like old headlights sniffing model glue again
Head like a steel trap
Wish I didn't, I didn't, I didn't, I didn't, I didn't, I didn't, I didn't
I don't just want to be a footnote in someone else's happiness

Does your husband know the way that the sunshine gleams from your wedding band?
Does he know the way, does he know the way
Of the crickets that would convince me to call it a night

But I will never end like him
Behind my back I already am
Keep a calendar, this way you will always know

The last time you came through
Oh darling I know what you're going through
The last time you came through
Oh darling, oh darling, oh darling

Tempest in a teacup, get unique
Peroxide princes shine like shark teeth
It's a sign, it's a sign
It's a sign, what if it peaked early

Does your husband know the way that the sunshine gleams from your wedding band?
Does he know the way, does he know the way
Of the crickets that would convince me to call it a night

Does he, does he know the way I worship our love?
Does your husband know the way that the sunshine gleams from your wedding band?

But I will never end like him
Behind my back I already am
Keep a calendar, this way you will always know

The last time you came through
Oh darling I know what you're going through
The last time you came through
Oh darling, oh darling, oh darling

Does your husband know, does your husband know, does your husband know?
Does he know, does he know, does he know?

But I will never end like him
Behind my back I already am
Keep a calendar, this way you will always know

The last time you came through
Oh darling I know what you're going through
The last time you came through
Oh darling I know what you're going through
