Treasure Island

Games I play


Since day was I born
Fighting mommy,3 days more
The spirit's out on its way
There's a thousand games I play

Born to be wild
Prodigy as a child
That's what they say
All the games I play

Cricket bat higher than waist
Left handed I stand
Tangled across the grisps
I hit a six
Bowl like a beast
Reaches faster than seen
Spinning through the pitch
Ball hit the stumps
Cricket's one of thousand
O' games I play

Racket with nets tainted
A hole or two are accepted
Toss of feathers, serve for match
Top corner I hit a smash
Baddy's one ol' games I play

And then comes the dark era
High school's crushed my aura
I got through a geeky persona
Games I started loosing to play

A hundred beatings won't change me
The childhood athlete still remains
Be born from sweat ashes
There's thousand games yet to play

First to learn, never to return
An year of practice, made me a star

All the way from pool to snooker
I fired the balls into the hole
Eyes on target, this time don't forget
Reverse spin, I had it to perfection
Silent as the crowd, mind full of cloud
Irony I know, that's what I am
Snooker's the only game I play

I ain't no gentleman
Even though the game is so
Oh! hell's with the game of life
I am common man
Teach me what games you play
