Watched the Cricket

Watching cricket, eating cake and dozing in the sun
Would be a lot of fun
But that’s not how it’s done

Watching cricket, cake all gone beneath a lowering cloud
In amongst the crowd
who’re starting to get loud

Watching cricket, drinking tea, the game is getting tight
But we’re still in the fight
Result could come out right

Watched the cricket heading home complaining that we lost
The game would not be bossed
And all our best got tossed

Back at home no cricket now it’s time to go to bed
And watch my dreams instead
We’ll win inside my head!
