Bringing out the cones.
‘Will Tubby be playing today?’ His mother said.
‘It all depends on how much he’s been fed!’

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 I felt such a nit,
When I told her he wasn’t fit.
‘I would love to play him in a game,
If the other lads didn’t hold him to blame.’

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 ‘He stands still on the spot,
When he could have had a shot.’
Poor Tubby Jones does his best,
But he can’t run like all the rest.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 ‘You must play him’ says Mrs Jones,
‘If you don’t his father moans!’
‘Oh Mrs Jones why do you feed him so?
If you want him to make it as a pro.’

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 ‘I’d love to put him in a team,
You probably think me ever so mean,
But I have to be fair to the other lads,
Who run and run like their dads.’

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 ‘You need to help your son get fit,
Encourage him to run not sit,
Vegetables and salads are what he needs,
Instead of all those massive feeds.’

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 ‘If you love your Tubby so
And want him in the team to show.
Please listen to what I say,
And he should be playing by next May!
