I'm out of form

I’m out of luck, I’m out of form
Don’t know how I’ll weather the storm


The legs will move, the blood will flow
Take it easy, nice and slow
Do it little by little, blow by blow

I watch the ball, can’t watch my back
The knives are out, want me on the rack
Looking for luck, needle in a haystack


Forget the world, stare at a bird’s eye
You’re not a myth, you’re not an evil Sith
You’re still playing, you’re still brick-laying

I’m out of luck, I’m out of form
Don’t know how I’ll weather the storm


Open your mind, open your stance
Look at the field, give it one more glance
Forget about luck, forget about chance

I hear voices and I hear noises
I hear raves and I hear rants
I hear don’ts and I can’ts


Blank the crowd, blank the bowler
Let ‘em boo, let ‘em holler
Treat ‘em like another blank caller

I’m out of luck, I’m out of form
Don’t know how I’ll weather the storm

very good experiment G...

i guess more than dravid its laxman who looks puzzled by dravid still coming in at 3...

he has started to think that blocking every ball is the qualification to become india's no.3...hence his recent innings (read protests)...

utp said...

so thats what did it for DRAVID...boy he really was back in touch....

he has always been a great LEAVER of the ball...and thats what was missing from his game when he was out of form...really happy to see him back...in form...

He is a treat to watch...any day...

very funny SP.

VVS goes thru many phases, and is not afraid of being phased out. incredible bit, he's still playing after being phased out. a first in ind cricket.

Naked Cricket said...

utp, glimpses of the old RD. at least he used his fwd foot defence to spin. his last few dismissals were the pits.

Btw when he retires, he may not be a great Leaver.

dig this:

i m 35 so what

NC, awesome. Look at Sam and see how you have inspired this new genre. Great going.

Naked Cricket said...

cheers Som.
Sam is full of surprises.

Hey NC,

Have you heard Oasis's "I'm Outta Time"? Everytime I watch Hayden and Dravid struggle that's always playing in the background for some reason. Though I gotta say when it comes to lyrics, you kick Noel Gallagher's Manchester Butt.

Cheers
