The Lyrics

This parody is about this girl on the same basketball team as me in P.E. and she would almost always sit out and I had to be up all the time and I had never gotten time to rest on the bench!
Each time I play,
The same old game,
I get mad it seems,
At the girl that's you
And the one whose sitting next to you,
I see the bench,
The wooden bench,
I just wanna sit and rest
Cause' I want to
Cause' I want to
Get up and play
It's not gonna hurt you,
Tell me why are you always sitting down
And making me play,
Get up and play,
When my mind was set on some rest from play,
I won't forget those days
Just get up and play!
You would always say to me:
Can't you get up please?
OMG, I can't believe,
That you never had rest before
That you never had rest before
On the court, the games felt long
Because that day, my legs didn't feel strong
But sometimes from the bench you were gone,
Not for 5 minutes or more,
Not for 5 minutes or more

(Repeat chorus 2x)

5s. You know, the style of the original song reminds me of "Rivers of Babylon" by Boney M.
