Stewie Mudcat Australia/NZ Songbook (988* d) RE: Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia 16 Dec 20


The first test against India starts today and finally some coverage on free to air TV.

I MADE A HUNDRED IN THE BACKYARD AT MUM'S
(Greg Champion)

As I went out to have a bat just the other day
I had no idea what was coming my way
I played a chanceless innings and I earnt every run
And I made a hundred in the backyard at mumís

Chorus
Oh, I made a hundred in the backyard at mumís
I clobbered and I crunched every fabulous run
I toiled and I sweated and when the day was done
Iíd made a hundred in the backyard at mumís

I started out real shaky-like just poking around
Me sister with her off breaks well she had me pinned down
But when me little brother bowled I gave him the clout
And when we stopped for lunch I was twenty-four not out

Then me uncle Nev came on bowling his quicks
But I was scoring freely with deflections and flicks
As I passed me fifty I called for a beer
And when I hit the roof next door they all began to cheer

Chorus

I took some on the body but they didnít hurt a bit
I only hit the ball that was there to be hit
I hooked íem off me eyebrows and I tried to keep me head
And the ton came up with a straight drive through the window of the shed

Chorus
