The Lyrics

It's Australia vs. England in The Ashes series here in the UK. For uninitiated Americans, here is your guide to the Great Game...
Bat you grip!
Knock one past the slips
It doesn't tax
Excitement, it lacks
If standing round seems fun
You'll like cricket
You'll spend five days out in the sun
Playing cricket
If you can barely run
Take up cricket

It's cricket!
Hey, it's great!
Slumberfest!
Se-date!
Spec-tators
They all snore
A week to play it
Ends up a draw..
It's cricket!
Gives me wood!

Down in Pakistan, it's big
They love cricket
Strap a mattress to your leg
That's part of cricket
Rain delaying play
A soggy wicket

I love cricket
Like you should
I love cricket
Gives me wood!

Bat you grip
Time to have a kip*
Get in the groove
Hey! Somebody moved!
If lacrosse is far too fast
Check out cricket
You'll lose sensation in your ass
Watching cricket
Quite like going to mass
Church of Cricket!

It's cricket!
Hey, it's great!
Slumberfest!
Se-date!
Spec-tators
They all snore
A week to play it
Ends up a draw..
It's cricket!
It's alright!
'leven guys
Wear white
Four innings
Tea and cake
It's quite a challenge
To stay awake!
It's cricket!
Gives me wood!
* kip: UK slang for a nap

Sounds even less interesting than watching golf on TV. 555

Clever stuff.

Agree with Alvin. 5s. I have a title for this song anyone may use called "Whippits". Johnny D perhaps?
EmiLoca - August 17, 2005 - Report this comment
Clever, Kristof! 5's all around.
Johnny D - August 17, 2005 - Report this comment
Kristof --- bravo --- and watch out, your wood might give you a sticky wicket.

Red Ant --- thanks, I shall take "Whippits" under advisement!

It IS most certainly Cricket--Jiminy! Good parody. 555 (A whippet I understand is a breed of dog, similar to a greyhound, but usually gold colored fur--good luck!)
Tim Mayfield - August 17, 2005 - Report this comment
I wood like to pitch some 5's in here.
Dee Range - August 17, 2005 - Report this comment
Excellent, as usual Kristof. I saw about 30 minutes of a cricket match last year...would have understood it better, but the announcers were speaking Cockney rhyming slang or something...couldn't understand a word of it. 555

And I thought baseball and golf were long and boring. Thanks for the warning, Kristof. ;)

Good parody 5's
Stuart McArthur - August 26, 2005 - Report this comment
I've got a bit of catching up to do, and what a great one to start on - this would've been a hard write I reckon, Kristof, but not as hard as trying to curtail the Poms with the wind in their sails - and all because Glenn McGrath stepped awkwardly on a cricket ball - 555
