The Lyrics

This is a football referee and this is what he does.
Job I applied for was referee, And they called me back
1 black & white shirt, white pants and hat, and some shoes of black.

First thing is...toss a coin in the air on a cold Monday Night
Ask them Kick or Receive under stadium lights
I stretch both arms out to make a quick TD, when I'm a referee

I run around the field, telling them when to go,
got an incomplete pass, doing this tells me so
Got a gun to end quarters, in the back pocket I keep, when i'm a referee

The yellow flags are still flying across the floor,
Got Offsides, holding, encroachment and so much more
My trusty little whistle gives the teams good news,
even when it's halftime, i'll lead a band for you

(whistle blows and leads marching band into break)

(break)

There's a challenge on the play, and the replay screen learns
to see if the play is real, otherwise overturned,
wave my hands in the 4th quarter if they take a knee,
when i'm a referee, aww yeah
When i'm a referee, pro hockey's got it
When i'm a referee, basketball's got it
When i'm a referee
