(For my good friend Kat who is an Indian but too polite to gloat!)
IT'S NOT CRICKET!
Muffle the drums and wear the crepe!
Australians simply can't escape
From the fact that they're no longer Kings,
Cream of the Crop, Lord of the Rings!
It's of CRICKET that I speak.
Oh what havoc it can wreak!
they've been downed. India
! On home ground! South Africa
On home ground! Behold the tears!
For the first time in sixteen years!
Forget the Credit Crunch my friends;
This is where the universe ends!
Here in the land of ball and wicket;
Here, where we're obsessed by cricket.
'Obsessed'? Oh what a fraud I am!
I really couldn't give a damn!
