Tendulkar for a song

This month of September
I’d gladly dismember
Somehow, I’d rather be in October
Or mid way thru November
But you gotta do the dirty work, just ask the plumber
Play the shite and play it right, if you wanna be a contender!
For heaven’s sake, just ask Tendulkar!

Now I just used Sach to rhyme with this song
Know better than to use the cricketing equivalent of King Kong
But is it wrong, is it wrong, is it wrong?
To have Tendulkar, for a song, for a song, for a song!

I don’t know why Pepsico dropped him,
I don’t know why Coca Cola knocked him
What will they do without him?
Pray, what will we do without him?

Pray, pray, pray!

I’m already forgotten Sri Lanka,
I’m all ready for the Aussie tanker
I’m all ready for the English wanker
I’m all ready for SRT the banker

How he’ll cash in like he was the 90s
How he’ll cash in like he was the deities
How he’ll cash in like he was no frailties
Yeah, how he’ll cash in like he was no frailties

But

This month of September
I’d gladly dismember
Somehow, I’d rather be in October
Or mid way thru November
But you gotta do the dirty work, just ask the plumber
Play the shite and play it right, if you wanna be a contender!
For heaven’s sake, just ask Tendulkar!

Now I just used Sach to rhyme with this song
Know better than to use the cricketing equivalent of King Kong
But is it wrong, is it wrong, is it wrong?
To have Tendulkar, for a song, for a song, for a song!

(To be performed by Lou Reed, ideally)

sraghuna said...

They say he didnt have an enemy
His was a greatness to behold
He was the last surviving progeny
The last one on this side of the world

He measured a five foot four from tip to tail
Short & stout with powerful shins
They say he could split a mountain in two
Thats how we got into the cricketers pantheon

Last great cricketing indian male
Last great cricketing indian male
Last great cricketing indian male
Last great criccketing indian male
(Also to be sung to the melody by Mr.Reed)

interesting poetry...

Hey

I saw that you had Six and Out (www.sixandout.net) in your blogroll. This is just to bring to your notice that Six and Out has been retired and The Free Hit (www.thefreehit.blogspot.com) has taken its place. Its by the same author – Ankit (thats me).

Please make the change in the blogroll.

Thanks
