Remember, here they come , beat the drums, here they come the S.F. giants. Was that a part of the Bye Bye Bye song?

Oh good I'm not crazy!!!
I remember a song The SF Giants
from the 60's aired on the radio
and it had "here they come, beat
the drum, the SF Giants" in it,
but it was a different song than
the one played today....
There was a particular announcer
who played it on a morning show.
I can hum the song if I have to!!!

I heard this as "San Francisco 49ers" not Giants.

There was a Giants song played on the local radio station back in the early '60s, probably 62, playoff against the Dodgers, maybe KYA or KEWB. I remember the lyrics included "Hiller" and "Haller", and there was a verse similar to "..with a wham, bam, he hit a grand slam." I've been looking for that dog for years.

I grew up in Chicago but remember parts of this song from a 45 rpm vinyl record:
Here they come, beat the drum,
Here they come, the San Francisco Giants.
What a team, they're supreme,
They're the cream, the San Francisco Giants.
When the ump shouts, "OK, let's play ball!"
O, Beware you Dodgers, Braves, and all.
For they can rock 'em, and they can sock 'em,
And they can belt that old pill from home to Knob Hill,
The Golden Gate to the Empire State.
And flying high at Candlestick a flag of fame,
A-waiving glory to the Giants, the San Francisco Giants,
the finest in our nation's game.
Now listens friends, do you recall,
The names of Giants in the history of baseball?
There's John McGraw, his teams were thrilling;
In baseball's annals he had to have top billing.
And to Long George Kelly any fence,
Was just a load of wood to hit a ball against.
If there was trouble, they'd send for Hubble...
(memory fails here)

I had the original version on a record I got just prior to the 1958 season, the first in SF which was played at Seals Stadium. The first six lines I recall are the same as Greg Ridenour posted. Then I have a brain cramp. However, the song concludes with:
Antonelli, Barclay, Grissom,
Our fancy Dans at pitching
While behind the plate
Schmidt, Thomas, and Katt
Will mystify the other guy
When he comes to bat
With Billy Rigney, Cepeda, and Sauer
White, Kirkland, Mays
With Spencer and Lockman
to keep things hotski
So pardon if we talk a lot
Seem to brag
About new baseball in our city
We're sitting mighty pretty
With the Giants' club for 58.
