Thanks to Jon Harrington of the Coventry Songwriters, who started the discussion of how much fun it would be to be a football...
Lyrics
[4/4, brightly] FOOTBALLER?S PRAYER --J. Wrabek (with thanks to Jon Harrington) 1. Footballs are gentle, They?re really good with kids; I had one when I was young?everybody did; They don?t fret when they get wet, Don?t b*** about the snow And if you?ve got a football there ain?t no place you can?t go... CHORUS: O Lord, can I come back as a football? So folks will watch me everywhere I roll; I?ll get to fly through the air, Get kicked around and I won?t care-- And get cheered every time I reach my goal. 2. I want to approach everyone With symmetry and grace, And have ?em treat me friendly when I hit them in the face; I want to have a real thick skin, And never feel remorse, And never once get cheated on, or pregnant or divorced; CHORUS: O Lord, can I come back as a football? So folks will watch me everywhere I roll; I?ll get to fly through the air, Get kicked around and I won?t care-- And get cheered every time I reach my goal. 3. I want to be a football, ?Cause a football?s always neat; You know life?s gonna get interesting with a football at your feet; Footballs never act alone, Can?t do things by themselves, And footballs never make mistakes?it?s always someone else... CHORUS: O Lord, can I come back as a football? So folks will watch me everywhere I roll; I?ll get to fly through the air, Get kicked around and I won?t care-- And get cheered every time I reach my goal. 4. I want to be a football, And be sensitive and tame; Even when I knock you down, you?ll know it's just a game; Footballs play with anyone, 'Cause a football?s really nice; Oh, if I could be a football, it would feel like Paradise... CHORUS: O Lord, can I come back as a football? So folks will watch me everywhere I roll; I?ll get to fly through the air, Get kicked around and I won?t care-- And get cheered every time I reach my goal. BRIDGE: I don?t need to be an angel, singing praise eternally; Just to be a football is Heav?n enough for me; They?ll celebrate my exploits at the taverns all night long And the drinks are always free if the football comes along? CHORUS: O Lord, can I come back as a football? So folks will watch me everywhere I roll; I?ll get to fly through the air, Get kicked around and I won?t care-- And get cheered every time I reach my goal. REPEAT LAST LINE OF CHORUS TO END ?2010 J.
