The Lyrics

this parody is about cricket so some of you may not be familiar with some of the terms or who the king of spain is'if you need help just post at the bottom.
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la


when the game is boring
when you see the manager snoring
you dont want to be there
a cuppa tea your favourite armchair
though the games not pretty
just give me a bat
i'll sing you a ditty
this games a load of crap

come play a game n use your willow
on my shins i'm wearing a pillow
dreaming dreams of weilding willow
bowled a sneaky googley

show me how to weild my willow
footballs boring when it's nil-all
beaming seams at my willow
another short deliv-ery

sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
bowled a sneaky googley

there's a short ball swinging
hear the ball destroy my heads stinging
gives you diarrhoea
coz this guy is trying to kill ya
if it's heading my way
there's gonna be pain
but i'll sweep it skywards
like the king of spain


come play a game n use your willow
on my shins i'm wearing a pillow
dreaming dreams of weilding willow
bowled a sneaky googley

show me how to weild my willow
footballs boring when it's nil-all
beaming seams at my willow
another short deliv-ery


sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
bowled a sneaky googley


sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
sha la la la la la la la
another short deliv-ery

I like this - it's nice to know someone out there loathes football as much as I do. And, of course, I still bear a grudge because (thanks to my high school not letting girls play cricket) I now haven't played it in ten years. Well done!

(ABC3) I saw a British-Indian musical once that was all about cricket...two hours later i have no idea how the game is played! No matter. DKTOS, must be a catchy one. Maybe another chorus change, or a change of "sha-la" somehow would make this more memorable.

(ABC) So football fans can stick it in their wicket? You win the Test!

(ABC3) I don't know much about cricket either, but this was very good with some inspired rhyming. As Agrimorfee mentioned, changing the "sha-la" part up a bit would have made this better, IMHO.

I also agree with changing the sha-la part.... but I still liked this parody

(ABC3) I've done the odd cricket parody too tomario - so are you a Brit or an Aussie, or a South African? (or a kiwi?) - love football and cricket, and they're both the better for being so opposite each other - Warney! Warney! - 555

Cricket is just SOOOOOO BORING! I can still cook a couple of roast dinners and the game would still be on. Give me Football anyday - I mean the proper football at that. PS: I'm an Aussie!
