We are all booked in and ready to roll
or should I say ready to bowl
The balls have been picked
but scores not easy to predict
My fingers may get stuck in the holes
and fling my body way out of control
I might end up face to face with a skittle
go arse over head - yeah you may laugh just a little
Or maybe I'll score my first strike
knock everything down oh that's what I'd like
my competitive streak let loose
a winner just ready to produce
More like a few narrow misses and split pins
I'm wondering if I'd bowl better after a few gins
No it may make me stagger
and talk like Mick Jagger
But whatever the results it's just fun
congrats to the one who has won
The pins can now rest
for we gave it our best
I think I'd quite like to bowl again.
Happy 18th Birthday Ricky!
