The Lyrics

fingers black and blue
never knew the meaning of a handache
but then again, I've never played this game before
now the rules I've been showed
and there's no where there for gloves for wearing
we just have to play somehow
and take the pain some more

handball, to the wall
ah for God's sake just go serve the ball no foolin'
all we're doin right now is practising our stride
oh handball.. makes ma bawl
lets just play we'll get a beer later
we're playin it like everyone it's wintertime, inside

games are lasting so long
points are few, not many
I just can't believe we could play it all each day
sometimes refs ain't right
and there's nothing there except our own bravado
I'd always play my hands and win the game today

handball, to the wall
ah for God's sake just go serve the ball no foolin'
all we're doin right now is practising our stride
oh handball.. makes ma bawl
lets just play we'll get a beer later
we're playin it like everyone it's wintertime, inside
ya got me on my knees...
handball, to the wall
ah for God's sake just go serve the ball no foolin'
all we're doin right now is practising our stride

Unfortunately, most Americans don't know the sport the Olympics calls "team handball," and aren't going to get the jokes in this one -- including me. At least you didn't make it about Mike Dean or some other awful soccer referee.
