The Lyrics

YOU’VE GOT TO TAKE A WICKET OR TWO

In this game, one must win,
Losing counts as a sin;
When it’s your turn to take the field,
You've got to take a wicket or two…
You've got to take a wicket or two, boys,
You've got to take a wicket or two.

When you have to take the field,
You've got to take a wicket or two.

Never mind what your score,
There’s a need to do more,
Better to get some victims fast
Better take a wicket or two…
You’d better take a wicket or two, boys
You’d better take a wicket or two.

Need to get some victims fast.
Better take a wicket or two.

When you play in a test,
Got to be at your best,
Whether you’re bowling quick or spin,
You’ve got to take a wicket or two…
You've got to take a wicket or two, boys
You've got to take a wicket or two.

When you’re bowling quick or spin,
You've got to take a wicket or two.

One-day games, they’re quite hard,
Need to be on your guard.
Limited time to show who’s best,
You’ve got to take a wicket or two…
You've got to take a wicket or two, boys
You've got to take a wicket or two.

Time to show that you’re the best,
You've got to take a wicket or two.

When a side’s batting well,
Time to act, give them hell.
Show them some pace, get in their face,
And go and take a wicket or two…
You've got to take a wicket or two, boys
You’ve got to take a wicket or two.

Show them pace, get in their face
Go and take a wicket or two.

When you hear teams that say
They will win, come what may.
Muster your guys and tell them straight,
You've got to take a wicket or two…
You've got to take a wicket or two, boys
You've got to take a wicket or two.

Get your guys and tell them straight
You’ve got to take a wicket or two!

John Jenkins - March 19, 2014 - Report this comment
This original song deserves to be parodied more than it is on AmIRight, and this parody seems very good - even to someone not familiar with cricket. I would have liked to have seen a bit more variety in the chorus, though.
