Oh What a Lovely Tour or Lions Selected by Donkeys

Image

Up to your waist in ordure,

Up to your chin in balls –

Using the kind of language,

That makes the umpire blush;

Who wouldn’t join the series?

That’s what we all inquire,

Don’t we pity poor ol’ Compton sitting beside his fire.

Chorus

Oh! Oh! Oh! it’s a lovely tour,

Who’d not be a cricketer?

Oh! It’s a shame to take the pay.

As soon as the five minute bell

We feel just as heavy as lead,

So we never get up till the head coach brings

Our Red Bull up for us.

Oh! Oh! Oh! it’s a lovely tour,

What do we want with runs and form

When we’ve got this media storm?

Take guard! Ball turns!

How shall we spend the money we earns?

Oh! Oh! Oh! it’s a lovely tour.
