A Ball’s Life

I am a football, doing what I can,
Big and round and kicked by a man.
Round I am, hard and thick,
If you want you can give me a kick.
Bounce, bounce, wallop, thud,
I spend my life covered in mud.

Kick, kick, in the net,
Oh why am I always wet ?
Hit me, hit me, roll me on the pitch
Kick me past that muddy ditch.
Bounce, bounce, wallop, thud,
I spend my life covered in mud.

Here we are, at the match,
I hope the goalie knows how to catch.
Oh no, it’s raining today,
I don’t like the wet, do I have to play ?
Bounce, bounce, wallop, thud,
I spend my life covered in mud.

Oh dear, I’ve got a bad head,
I wish that I could stay in bed.
Kick me high, kick me low,
Kick me fast or kick me slow.
Bounce, bounce, wallop, thud,
I spend my life covered in mud.

Bounce, bounce, I am a ball,
Bounce, thud against the wall.
I’m on the pitch on a rainy day,
I may get wet but that’s OK.

Bounce, bounce, wallop, thud,
I spend my life covered in mud.

I am red and white, black and blue,
Kick me back from me to you.
Kick, kick, all around,
If I get lost I can’t be found.
Bounce, bounce, wallop, thud,
I spend my life covered in mud.

Kick, kick, hear the roar
When they kick me and I score.
Round and round, red and black,
All my life I’m covered in cack.
Bounce, bounce, wallop, thud,
I spend my life covered in mud.

Pass, pass, down the wing.
My bum is really starting to sting.
Throw, throw, jump, jump,
I hit the ground with a bump.
Bounce, bounce, wallop, thud,
I spend my life covered in mud.

Pass, pass, shoot, shoot,
I spend my life on the end of a boot.
Bounce, bounce, wallop, thud,
I spend my life covered in mud.
