Batmanís song

Mel: Waltzing Mathilda

(Even was 10 when the family went to spend half a year in Melbourne in 1993-94. He picked up a few things, including a passion for cricket.)

Once a little Norseman travelled down to Mellabourne

struggling so hard an Australian to be.

And he sang as he sat and waited with his wooden bat:

"Dad, wonít you come and play cricket with me?

Play me some cricket, try hit the wicket,

Dad, come and play some more cricket with me."

And when Dad finílly bowled, little batman eyed the ball so cold,

wacked it to places that noone could see.

 

Dad tried to practice, spinning balls to left and right,

struggling so hard an Australian to be,

while the young Norseman sat and waited with his wooden bat:

"Dad, are you ready for cricket with me?

Play some more cricket, try hit the wicket,

Dad, come and play some more cricket with me."

And when Dad finílly bowled, little batman eyed the ball so cold,

wacked it to places that noone could see.
