A Few of My Favourite Swings.


Dew drops from noses and
Murray Mint spitting
Polo Saliva and
Fingernail Lifting
Keep all the sweat off
One side of the thing

This is how we try to get reverse swing.


Bottle-top scratching and
Vaseline Rubbing
Bouncing ball throw-ins and
Mr Sheen Dubbing
Brown coloured earth which
The Skip can rub in
This is how we try to get reverse swing


When the Ump spies
(With his good eye)
That you’ve raised the seam
You protest you innocence,
Throw out your toys,
And leave the field with
Your team
