The Lyrics

Other kids' games are all such a bore! They've gotta have rules and they gotta keep score! Calvinball is better by far! It's never the same! It's always bizarre! You don't need a team or a referee! You know that it's great, 'cause it's named after me!
When organised sports aren't quite your game, get you down
There's a little thing you can play to kill frowns
No two sessions can be the same
Rule number one
Rule number two: wear a mask, just don't dare question
Them at all, domino your face, now the next one
The final rule for this crazy game:
Make rules up as you go along

Bats make footballs fly
Songs sung, don't ask why
A lot of odd zones to find
Hard to resist the call
Time to go and play Calvinball

No, I'm not in a vortex spot, can't spin here
Because I touched the Opposite Pole, I'm in the clear
I did declare I touched it, you see
Did not say so, it's the Opposite Pole

The score, I cannot lie
Is now Q to 12, I
Decree that's now swapped, right
Sorry for your point fall
But that's how you play Calvin-
Ball, rules on the fly
'Cause I do have the right
To have my fun in the way that I like
No rules to stifle all
The energy I exert
I can't have a ball
The same way that you do
My patience is low
So let's go to the Bag Flag Zone

Sooner or later, all our games turn into Calvinball.
