The Lyrics

Firstly, yes I know the Beatles wrote and performed this (!) - but this is written to the performance by The Carpenters, which is a whole different, sadder atmosphere.secondly, to clarify the Aussie Rules football expressions: Goal=6 pointsBehind=1pointB.O.G.= Best On Ground votes.........................................this parody is dedicated to that ONE bloke in every team (grrrrrr...)
I think I'm gonna be sad
I think it's today...yeah
the bloke that's driving me mad
is going to play

when we are trailing by fi-ive
he's gonna kick a behi-i-ind
he's gonna kick a behind
and he don't care

They say that watching him play
is bringin' me down...yeah
I - feel nervous all day
when he's on the ground

When we are trailing by fi-ive
he's gonna kick a behi-i-ind
he's gonna kick a behind
and he don't care

Don't know why he bothers to line up
he oughta kick it right
he oughta kick it right

Shouldn't try to judge it too fi-ine
he oughta kick it right
he oughta kick it right

They say he's getting to me
he's makin' me frow-own....yeah
but he won't get B.O.G.
while I am.

he's gonna kick a behi-ind
and then we'll run out of ti-i-ime
he's gonna kick a behind
and he don't care

don't care-are..

Just when I was finally starting to understand soccer, and you have to go and throw in a whole new game... ;-)

Hey ! Alvin's got the concept! I give you one goal and 9 behinds instead Stu! Glad you explained B-O-G, lest I may have thought dunny ;-p

I never knew the Carpenters did a cover of it, I gotta check that out. I hope it's not screwed up like the cover of Help! from... from... Countdown, I can't remember who did it. But yeah, good stuff here, 5-5-5

Charnster ! It was John Farnham who assassinated Help - if that's who you are thinkign of...

alvin, my man! it's as though you know what you're talking about, which maybe you do - very few Yanks get our national game - 2 goals 3 is a common score around the 20 minute mark of the first quarter (a typical final score would be 16 goals, 14 behinds, 110 points) - thanks for the 5s

lol, Matthias, thanks ;-)....and same to you Merry :-)

thanks Pippin, and Charnstar, and yes, Pip got in before me with the John("-ny": optional but nostalgically-correct) Farnham, and gee you don't get many references to Countdown on amiright, Charnstar - maybe you, Luke, Kristof and I (and Pippin of course) should do a Coundown tribute parody! (bobpie is a little too young I believe ;-))

Gotta say, Stu...when I read the title, I thought this was going to be about posterior punting, but happily it's another of your wonderful Aussie Rules parodies. Being a Hawthorn supporter, I'm used to having at least 6 of "that ONE bloke" playing! Fun stuff as always. I'm up for a Countdown parody, although if you do enlist all of the abovementioned, the authors may the only ones who actually get it. Btw, what's Molly "do yerself a favour" Meldrum up to these days?

Viva la Wombats!!!

thanks Kristof - believe it or not (and I'm tipping "not") Molly made it to and won $500,000 on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire (a record at that point in time) for charity - which give me hope that I might one day become full-forward for Richmond yet ;-)
