Freddy Steady Go!

Like Ian Andersen on one good leg
Coming down Lord’s hill like one big keg
What you gonna do little Aussie?
What you gonna do?
Here he comes, he comes for you,
Ninety two miles an hour
While up there sits a thin-lipped Andy Flower
Freddy Steady Go!
Freddy Unsteady Go!

No, not quite, not quite
Here he comes, he comes for you,
What you gonna do little Aussie?
What you gonna do?
Ninety two miles an hour
Short and in the face
Out to annihilate the human race
That’s cheating, too heavy too fast
Too many overs, too many overs unchanged
How did he bowl more than four?
What we gonna do, what we gonna score!
Here he comes
He comes for you
Freddy Steady Go!

Such a big bulk of a man
The earth must hurt as he trudges in
He will, gonna breakdown
He will, gonna meltdown
This man don’t belong, not to now
He be some early descendant of the Ape
Will you look at that ball and shape
Ninety two miles an hour
Here he comes
He comes for you
What you gonna do Little Aussie?
What you gonna do?
It’s Freddie. Steady. Go!

Bill Lawry: He’s GAAAAWN!

he is born retriever...reminds me of my dog in a way that even if he is down just throw Frisbee in air and no matter what he will run and fetch it...

ashes is the thing which will keep him going...more so coz he don't have to worry now for long terms goals...just three more matches...

SP, Freddie has a trigger, and he's figured that out, finally. Too bad it took his entire test career.

This guy's thinking IPL now, winning it for CSK - that could be bigger than the Ashes - in India at least.
