With my dog and my lunch and my wife by my side
I’ll go watch the cricket today I decide.
The sun it is shining, a book in my hand,
I’m ready to watch the lads make a stand.
In the trees now the birds, they natter and chatter,
Makes me feel sleepy but what does that matter.
I see deep square leg take a wonderful catch,
But then fall asleep for the rest of the match.
They missed my support, but I’m quite happy now,
I can go back to sleep ‘cos we won anyhow.
. .. and talking about Cricket, I am reminded of that great joyful Calypso – all the rage in my youth! (now you know how old I am!)
You can join me in enjoying it once again in this YouTube video . . .
