To Break in a Glove Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
This glove's really cool, wow
Oh, why don't you take it?
Oh no, no, I couldn't​
Why not?
Are you sure?
Verse 2
I bought this glove a thousand years ago
For some birthday or some Christmas that has come and gone
I thought we might play catch or, I don't know
But he left it in the bag, with the tag still on
Verse 3
You'll have to break it in though, first
You can't catch anything with it that stiff​
Verse 4
How do you break it in?
Verse 5
Well, it's all a process that is really quite precise
A sort of secret method known to very few
So, if you're in the market for professional advice
Well today could be a lucky day for you
Verse 6
Shaving cream
Verse 7
Shaving cream?
Verse 8
Oh yeah you rub that in for about five minutes,
Tie it all up with rubber bands, put it under your mattress, and sleep on it
And you do that for at least a week, every day, consistent​
Verse 9
And though this method isn't easy
Every second that you spend is gonna pay off
It'll pay off in the end
Verse 10
It just takes a little patience
It takes a little time
A little perseverance
And a little uphill climb
Verse 11
You might not think it's worth it
You might begin to doubt
But you can't take any shortcuts
You gotta stick it out
Verse 12
And it's the hard way
But it's the right way
The right way to break in a glove
Verse 13
With something like this, you gotta be ready to put in the work,
Make the commitment
So what do you think?
Verse 14
I mean, definitely​
Verse 15
Some people say just use a microwave
Or try that run it through hot water technique
Well, they can gloat about the time they saved
'Til they gotta buy another glove next week
Verse 16
It just takes a little patience (it just takes a little patience)
Takes a little time (takes a little time)
A little perseverance (perseverance)
Verse 17
And a little uphill climb
And it's the hard way
But it's the right way
The right way
Verse 18
'Cause there's a right way in everything you do
Keep that grit
Follow through
Verse 19
Even when everyone around you thinks you're crazy
Even when everyone around you lets things go
And whether you're prepping for some test
Or you're miles from some goal
Or you're just trying to do what's best
For a kid who's lost control
Verse 20
You do the hard thing
'Cause that's the right thing
Yeah, that's the right thing
Verse 21
Connor was really lucky to have a dad that
Uh, a dad who cared so much about
Taking care of stuff
Verse 22
Shaving cream, rubber bands, mattress, repeat
Got it?
Verse 23
Got it
It's the hard way
But it's the right way
The right way
To break in a glove
Verse 24
You're good to go
