The Lyrics

Amiright parody #24 to this fine OS.............This is about those opportunistic merchandisers who try to flog limited-edition framed photos of sporting moments over the TV to suckers who want to be part of it. I've based the story on cricket and Glen McGrath's first Test half-century last week (which Brits and Aussies will be well aware of).......but it translates to any popular televised sport

um diddle, it'll - be a million one day
um diddle, it'll - be a million one day

Because I was unable to see Pigeon's fifty live
I thought I'd never get the chance to treasure it with pride
But Tony Greig has just announced they've done a special print
a limited-edition photo, freshly off the mint

t'would
be a fabulous addition to my den or study
I might hang it by the fridge to flabbergast my buddies
have to make them put on gloves so they won't get it grubby
what a fabulous addition to my den or study

um diddle, it'll - be a million one day
um diddle, it'll - be a million one day

I've travelled all around the world but everywhere I went
never has a thousand bucks been more sensib-ly spent
My satisfaction rating is 100+ percent
I'm now a very special part of THAT special event

It's
such a fabulous addition to my den or study
word has spread so fast I've had to show my buddies' buddies
we all sit and gaze at it while sipping on our stubbies
what a popular addition to my den or study

um diddle, it'll - be a million one day
um diddle, it'll - be a million one day

When dukes and marahajas find their way to this fair town
They hear about my print and then they want to come around
They all recall that magic moment oh so vivid-ly
but none of them can ever be a part of it like me

they
wished they had this fabulous addition for their study
which they could gaze lovingly at
(while they play gin rummy)
Glen McGrath, the moment he stopped batting like a bunny
frozen for all time and hanging proudly in my study

Jeff - thanks Captain Raspberry! (that name just cracks me up)

Arwen - it's not ALL, it's the ONLY thing...

thanks Cookie - we got to stick tight against 3s-man

AFW - very clever, and thanks heaps :-)

Kristof - I was hoping you'd read it (Mark Waugh lost a $1000 bet when McGrath hit his 50th run!)

thanks Adagio - silly is right - honestly how could you get so sucked in?

thanks Serafina (lovely name)
