A similar example can be found in Billy Joel's song "Zanzibar" in which he compares himself to Pete Rose and sings the lines "Me, I'm trying just to get to second base and I'd steal it if she only gave the sign.
This sequence of "running the bases" is often regarded as a script, or pattern, for young people who are experimenting with sexual relationships.
The script may have slightly changed since the 1960s.
If one person puts their hands or mouth on the other person’s genitals, they’re on third base.

Among the most commonly used metaphors are the bases describing levels of physical intimacy (generally from a heterosexual perspective).
