From Skegness to Honolulu

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’m just a big coloured plastic ball
Who usually get’s kicked about on the sand
But since I blew on to a football pitch
I’m now the most famous ball in the land.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 All the other beach balls are now jealous
Of me becoming an overnight star
While they’re all floating out to sea
Fans are buying me drinks at the bar.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 But Liverpool fans don’t feel the same way
Threatening to pop me given half a chance
That’s why I’ve booked myself a long vacation
Taking in the beaches of the South of France.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 But life for me hasn’t been that easy
Abandoned on Skegness beach years ago
Kicked around from pillar to post
One summer in Clacton, the next in Felixstowe.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Still at least I’ve done a bit of travelling
And now found fame on a Premier League pitch
I can now take life nice and easy
Now I’m a superstar and filthy rich.

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 So to all you plastic balls out there
Stay positive, because this could happen to you
Just think I was in Bognor last summer
Now I’m off to do a photo shoot, in Honolulu !

Still can’t believe how a plastic ball could have caused such a stir in the football world. But hey, it gives us something to write about !
