The Lyrics

NOTE: The word *Love* is obviously one syllable as written. I'm pacing the song as it is sung in the chorus, where *Love* is two syllables, sung as *Lo-ove.*
I faintly remember what happened in the rough
Took a boot in the fold
And that goon he was so strong now
He knocked me out cold
I thought I was better now, but I'm too kind
I thought I could play rugby but get hurt all the time

Hurt it in a rugby scrum
Dislocated my right thumb
Now it's feelin' kinda numb
Call me dumb

I'm an older man, but do like to play
But I start screamin' when I see ball come my way
Players too fast and large too, gonna hurt me, bro
And the scuffles tag me blind, right on the nose

Hurt it in a rugby scrum
Players beat me like a drum
Then they knock me on me bum
Need some rum

(flute solo)

Blood gonna be streamin' from my bloody maw
I tried to run, but he's got speed, that sasquatch jackin' my jaw
So I came out, too sore; tryin' so hard not to cry
I'll hear another jeer if they see a tear drop in my eye

Hurt it in a rugby scrum
Love the taste of my blood, yum!
They're the sharks and I'm the chum
Ain't much fun

I had my head examined, the news was bad, 'cause it was bleedin' they find
It's the hardest game I ever played, but I'll leave behind
Always someone meaner on the other side of that ball
I was torn and mangled and run over but I guess I was too small

Hurt it in a rugby scrum
Now I guess my brain is numb
And I hear a constant hum
What's that from?

For the record, I have never played rugby in my life. ;-)

Great job, and I know the OS very well, since it is... another one of my favorites that you parodied! :-) I've got a parody of this in the works, but it contains adult content, so it will go to Whatfreaks (a parody site similar to this, but for X-rated parodies, it is not run by Chucky G) if and when I finish it. 5s, and I've never played rugby either. My school sports history is limited to air hockey, bumper pool, table football and Foos Ball in places like the Boys & Girls Club, after-school activities and college rec rooms.

Nice one, B21. I used to watch this some and it hurt to watch - just like football but no pads or helmets - ouch
