Cricket Song
Music and Lyrics by Wilbur Sargunaraj.

It's the very best sport in the the world today
11 people to each side and on a pitch they play.
IPL, County, Test, I don't care about the form
Cricket is taking over the the world by storm

c-r-i-c-k-e-t This is cricket
c-r-i-c-k-e-t Bowl on a wicket
c-r-i-c-k-e-t You got to hit it
c-r-i-c-k-e-t are you with it?

The point of the game is to make the highest score
And defend your total so the next team cant get more
If the ball hits the stumps then you will be out
But leave like a gentleman and please don't pout

c-r-i-c-k-e-t This is cricket
c-r-i-c-k-e-t Bowl on a wicket
c-r-i-c-k-e-t You got to hit it
c-r-i-c-k-e-t are you with it?

You can get a batsman out by bowling a googly
Or bamboozle them with pace like Mr Brett Lee
You can drive the ball to the fence or smash it for a six
Or pull out any fancy shots in your bag of tricks.

You can play this awesome game anytime or anyplace
It doesn't matter whereyoure fromor the colour of your face
The most important thing is that you are having fun
In this game bringing all the countries together as one
