The Lyrics

Firstly, yes I know the Beatles wrote and performed this (!) - but this is written to the performance by The Carpenters, which is a whole different, sadder atmosphere.secondly, to clarify the Aussie Rules football expressions: Goal=6 pointsBehind=1pointB.O.G.= Best On Ground votes.........................................this parody is dedicated to that ONE bloke in every team (grrrrrr...)
I think I'm gonna be sad
I think it's today...yeah
the bloke that's driving me mad
is going to play

when we are trailing by fi-ive
he's gonna kick a behi-i-ind
he's gonna kick a behind
and he don't care

They say that watching him play
is bringin' me down...yeah
I - feel nervous all day
when he's on the ground

When we are trailing by fi-ive
he's gonna kick a behi-i-ind
he's gonna kick a behind
and he don't care

Don't know why he bothers to line up
he oughta kick it right
he oughta kick it right
away

Shouldn't try to judge it too fi-ine
he oughta kick it right
he oughta kick it right
away

They say he's getting to me
he's makin' me frow-own....yeah
but he won't get B.O.G.
while I am.
around

ohh
he's gonna kick a behi-ind
and then we'll run out of ti-i-ime
he's gonna kick a behind
and he don't care

don't care-are..

I don't know a thing about "soccer".... Hee-hee, Sorry had to, good job here

Just when I was finally starting to understand soccer, and you have to go and throw in a whole new game... ;-)

Hey ! Alvin's got the concept! I give you one goal and 9 behinds instead Stu! Glad you explained B-O-G, lest I may have thought dunny ;-p

I never knew the Carpenters did a cover of it, I gotta check that out. I hope it's not screwed up like the cover of Help! from... from... Countdown, I can't remember who did it. But yeah, good stuff here, 5-5-5
Peregrin - October 29, 2006 - Report this comment
Charnster ! It was John Farnham who assassinated Help - if that's who you are thinkign of...

alvin, my man! it's as though you know what you're talking about, which maybe you do - very few Yanks get our national game - 2 goals 3 is a common score around the 20 minute mark of the first quarter (a typical final score would be 16 goals, 14 behinds, 110 points) - thanks for the 5s

lol, Matthias, thanks ;-)....and same to you Merry :-)

thanks Pippin, and Charnstar, and yes, Pip got in before me with the John("-ny": optional but nostalgically-correct) Farnham, and gee you don't get many references to Countdown on amiright, Charnstar - maybe you, Luke, Kristof and I (and Pippin of course) should do a Coundown tribute parody! (bobpie is a little too young I believe ;-))

Gotta say, Stu...when I read the title, I thought this was going to be about posterior punting, but happily it's another of your wonderful Aussie Rules parodies. Being a Hawthorn supporter, I'm used to having at least 6 of "that ONE bloke" playing! Fun stuff as always. I'm up for a Countdown parody, although if you do enlist all of the abovementioned, the authors may the only ones who actually get it. Btw, what's Molly "do yerself a favour" Meldrum up to these days?

Viva la Wombats!!!

thanks Kristof - believe it or not (and I'm tipping "not") Molly made it to and won $500,000 on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (a record at that point in time) for charity - which give me hope that I might one day become full-forward for Richmond yet ;-)
