The Lyrics

I manage the boy's basketball team at my school and my friend and I were fooling around when we came up with the idea for this song. I posted it in a forum and somebody suggested this site to me and I wrote the song and now I'm posting it here. Oh yeah, and the Sacramento Kings are my favorite basketball team. Enjoy!
He was a boy, he loved basketball
Can I make it any less obvious?

She was a girl, and she loved to shop,
But she didn't go for jocks.

He'd wanted her since his freshman year,
And now as a senior he saw what he feared.

He had to choose, between her and his game,
It had come down to love or fame.

He was into basketball, she didn't like him at all,
But he really wanted her.
She told him to drop his game,
But he still wanted the fame.
He finally chose the ball over her.

Ten years from now, she's at a Kings game,
With her lazy husband, he's so lame.

She looks down at the court, and what do you know?
That boy she said "no" to is star of the show.

If had chose her, over basketball,
Neither of them would be here at all.

She could've been rich and living in fame,
If she just hadn't asked him to give up his game.

He was into basketball, she didn't like him at all,
But he really wanted her.
Now he's in the NBA, he never sits out a play,
His slam dunks take him off the earth.

Sorry girl but you missed out, well that boy has a contract now.
He will be in the NBA for fifty years, till he's old and gray.

Too bad that you cannot take, all the money that he makes.
There is more than cash, it's true, but it's for someone else, not you.

He was a boy, he loved basketball
Now it is clear and very obvious.

And lucky for him, he found his girl
And we rock each other's worlds!

He was into basketball, but basketball wasn't all,
He's into me as much as his game.
Now he's one happy guy,
And on the court he will fly.
He's earned himself worldwide fame.
