Anyone can put on a pair of shoes
Anyone can get a cut or a bruise,
And anyone can pick up and swing a baseball bat
And anyone can wear a football helmet or a hat.
Anyone can bounce or catch a ball
Everyone is either short or tall,
Anyone can wear athletic shorts
And anyone can run up or down courts.
Anyone can play with sticks
Everyone can kick or do tricks,
Anyone can shoot pigeons or doves
But, only a very few can wear boxing gloves.
