Who Am I?
I’m a Number One Bowler and a prima donna too,
And I won’t be told where to play by blokes without a clue,
I’m simply just the greatest one to ever roll a bowl,
And when the pennant teams are picked I want a starring role,
Now, the Chairman of Selectors, he said to ME one day,
We’re gonna play you in the lead; like bloody hell I say,
Then later on he winked at me and very slyly beckoned,
There’s been a change of plans he said, we’re gonna play you second.
I let him know he’s got a nerve, and said “Now look here Bub,
If you can’t appreciate my skill I’ll find another club”
So they hold a Special Meeting and pick me number Three,
But I make it pretty plain to them, that is no bloody good to ME.
Another conference then takes place and after all the fun,
They put me where I should have been, a Skipper Number One.
I’m slightly mollified by now and though Skippers get the plums,
It’s still beneath my dignity … to play with all you BUMS.
