The Lyrics

Marion and Steve are the two singers who sing on my CDs

I dread this time of year,
When you're away.
I live in constant fear,
I wish you'd stay.
The months that we're apart
Are such a grind.
The cricket that you play all year around,
It blows my mind.

I know I'm far away
But have to tour.
They need my batting skills,
I have to score.
The form I lost last year
I need to find.
The cricket that I play all year around,
It blows my mind.

I wish you well my Love,
And win your tests.
Don't let your team mates down.

I'll do my best.

And then when you/I return
It's what we said:
The cricket that you/I play all year around
We'll put to bed.

The cricket that you play all year

Soon, my angel, soon
