The Lyrics

Wimbledon is not my city
Have no tennis abil-ity
No good at all
With that fat ball

If you catch the hint I'm hintin'
I prefer, for sure, Badminton
I'm good, I know,
At this game, so

I'll Take Badminton
When I'm sun squintin'
On a court
To some a wussy sort
Of Sport..

I'll beat Serena,
'Cause I can bean a
Shuttlecock
And give it such a knock
Sometimes I lose a sock
Or my jock !

Poor Jimmy Connors,
Will lose all honors
From my serves
No fast returning swerves
My nerves..

This badass backhand and wicked smash
Could re-closet Arthur Ashe
I'll Take Badminton,
Badminton, that's my "Pash"

Strictly between us
I'm keen as Venus
When I play
And even better than
Andre..

It's no baloney,
I shine like Sony
With a style
Tough as a crocodile
John McEnroe, I'll rile
Quite a while..

Ann Kournicova, or Sharapova
I'll defeat
With feathers they'll be beat,
Retreat !
Jen Capriati and Chris Evert
Their pride will be badly hurt
I'll Take Badminton
Opponents lose their shirt !

I'll Take Badminton,
Badminton is my spurt, er..Sport !

This has gotta be the first parody on this subject. Visualizing the action (or lack thereof) made me chuckle.
