The Lyrics

I don't know about you americans, but here in Australia we have two really good cricketers, Shane Warne and Steve Waugh, both caught up in a little bit of Scandalus.
Step up to the crease the batter,
swings his arms around in fame
the bowl comes in he flunks the pull shot
walks off the field in shame.

Was it intentional the error
was it rigged or was it played?
Only missed by a fraction
Only missed, cause you're payed
Right now!
Steve Waugh, isn't speaking
Right now.
Shane Warne is cheating

~Cronir is bribing people
Riggin the cricket is OK
Only missed by a fraction
Only missed when you're payed!


Only missed by a fraction
Only missed, cause your payed!
Well, the credit for this song should go to my friend Andrew, who made up most of it, I jsut added a few verses.This should only be funny to an Australian, so don't worry if your Baseball filled American mind doesn't get it. ~Cronir is a bookmaker. Spelling may not be correct
